QUESTION:

Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 8388608 bytes exhausted..



ANSWER:

Textpattern’s memory usage is quite low – usually no more than a couple of megabytes.

Unless your server admin has set the PHP memory limit far too low — unlikely, but not impossible — the cause is probably a plugin. Some older archive page plugins work by loading all articles into memory at once. This could easily exhaust the available memory if you have a large number of articles.

Disable your plugins one by one, until you find the culprit. If the cause is indeed a plugin, we suggest contacting its author about the problem.

Alternatively, consider using the txp:article_custom tag to generate your archive list. <txp:article_custom /> uses memory efficiently. Some new tags in Textpattern 4.0.2 might help with formatting.
