Default Help with X-Cart News Customization

I am almost done in the trial version of setting up my X-Cart GOLD 4.5.1 site. I came from LC 2.2.41 and I love the way the news is setup. If I have a really long newsletter (I used an html template and they become very long) in LC then the newsletters are separated into pages. But in X-Cart the newsletters seem to just continue on down forever, this can be very long and annoying for customers searching through our newsletters.

Is there a way that I can have the newsletters be put on different pages? (maybe after 3 newsletters the 4th one starts a new page?)

Here: is my old/current website running on LC 2.2.41 and this is how the newsletters are setup: http://www.silverhorseracing.com/cart.php?target=news&mode=view_all&pageID=11
^^^SOLVED.


Another question! Does each news message have a specific ID?

I want to link the title of the news messages to a page containing the news message.
(i.e message number 2 would be something like /news.php?mode=messages&messageid=2)

Each news message does indeed get an ID specifically newsid=1 and newsid=2 etc.

I don't see the messages mode you refer to though, it would need to be coded. I think the file you want to start editing is modules/News_Management/news_manage.php.

Hope that helps.
