Problem: How to set a limit and offset in a View Loop?
Solution: The loop output (amount of) is limited in the View directly, usually in the "Limit and Offset" section.
There is as well a ShortCode attribute - valid just for the View you display and it's set on the ShortCode so you can display this same View with several different settings.
In this case you would not alter the View "Limit and Offset" section." but you would add the ShortCode attribute "limit" to delimit the result.
