Today on Stack Overflow I was blessed because the count on the review page, low quality tab went under 90, so pagination was enabled. I immediately went to the bottom and selected a post count of 50. When I went back later today, and it was still under 90, it had defaulted back to 15.

Could we make the pagination post count sticky please?

As far as I can tell this has been implemented, along with other /review display options such as date range filters and sort order.

I've tested this by selecting the page size (and filter/sort options). This resulted in the following querystring:


Then, upon loading /review on another machine, all settings were inherited from my other session, and on clicking other tabs the same querystring ispresent (as long as I avoided the suggested-edits tabs).

That was repeated using different combination of parameters. All behaved as expected.

As an aside, pagesize can be set to any value between 15 and 1000. Values that are smaller/larger gets reset to the threshold values (15 or 1000). Invalid input resets it to 15.

So in other words, if the query string contains a pagesize it's sticky? That's rather not what he intended. – jcolebrand Nov 15 '11 at 15:44
not quite. If you come in fresh to /review the options are already set (I've actually counted the entries to make sure it's correct even for odd values such as 42) so the settings are definitely stored off-browser. – Shawn Chin Nov 15 '11 at 15:47
ok, I see where you put that, I thought you meant you loaded something with a querystring. /facepalm to me, +1 to you – jcolebrand Nov 15 '11 at 15:50
Also, moving between tabs under /review reinstates the querysting which is how I managed to visually confirm that the values were inherited by a different session in different browsers – Shawn Chin Nov 15 '11 at 15:50
@jcolebrand it was my bad - I wasn't being very clear. Answer edited. – Shawn Chin Nov 15 '11 at 15:56
Yes, they have fixed it now. – Lance Roberts Nov 15 '11 at 17:55
