    Magazine library


      My magazine library only shows the last 8 of my People magazines. How can I show more? I have called the store and did the live chat.... no help...

          There is an "undocumented feature" of B&N newsstand to keep from cluttering up your Nook, that automatically archives older issues.  I think if they sit in archive status long enough they can get permanently deleted, but I'm not sure about that.  Go into the "view archive" function and you can un-archive them.  Unfortunately, the next time you get a fresh new issue, the older issues get archived again and you have to un-archive them again.

            Perfect answer MacMcK1957. Magazines take up a lot of memory. I'm constantly shuffling magazines between archive and unarchive on my 8GB Tab 4.  What's disturbing here is that the support channels couldn't help the OP. This 8 issue restriction is hardly new. Terrible support knowledge base.

              Been there, done that... Unfortunately, the only People magazines in archive are the 8 showing up in my library. What the heck??? However, I have other magazines in there with 15 issues, some showing they are in the cloud. So why only 8. I've paid for them, I should have access to them. And I have an SD card for extra storage, but of course, none of this can go on it...

                Actually, the online guy told me the same thing about looking in the archive. Then he said I should call the 800 number, but I had tried that already.... horrible phone connection, hang ups.... Turns out the chat guy is in the Philippines, not sure where the help line is since I could never get a good connection. Of course, the store I called is in the USA and they didn't help either. I know it's not life or death, but I paid for them... I should have access to the very first one I received.

                  Oh, I see. Yes, you should have archive access to all your old magazines. I've got 236 archived issues of Newsweek going back 5 full years, plus 2 issues from my trial subscription in Dec 2010. Do you have this problem with any other magazines?   I wonder if anyone else has this problem with People.

                    Here's the support page about auto archiving:

                      After checking out this link, I ended up finding the automatically archived items by going to my account in bn.com. Previously I was looking for the archived magazines in my library archives, not from the Barnes and Noble website. Thanks for everyone's help...
