I have the recurvise thing working from earlier post – this means (at least conceptually) that the web part *should* pick up all new lists which match the criteria. But as you point out; there seems to be a limit of lists. My recursive webpart is only picking up five subsites. The way I can tell is by turning on the search mode and using the site name as the search field. When I use the web part after applying this setting only 5 of the many many subsites we have with the same named list in it show up. FWIW – the New Item button on the web part also is limited to selecting only 5 subsites.
Has anyone determined how to use a subsite list as the target for this? Does that have the same 5 site limit?
