Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

One of the users on CogSci reported a bug where pagination failed at 15, 30 and 50 items per page. He linked to a similar bug on Biology.

Here is the bug report from jonsca:

To reproduce:

  • Go to the Questions link/tab
  • Select the last page (in our case, page #9 with 50 questions per page)
  • Now, try to go back the page before that one (page #8)

I get the following:

enter image description here

Unlike when I had the problem on Biology.SE, this seems to occur with 15 or 30 items per page selected as well.

I'm using Chrome 20, but I can reproduce the problem on Firefox 13.

I am able to reproduce this on Chrome 20.0.1132.57 on Mac OS X 10.7.4.

Is this a caching issue? Can this be fixed?

I don't think this is something I can meddle with ;) – Tim Stone Jul 20 '12 at 13:17
No, but by commenting saying you can repro, the team knows this is srs bsnss! – The Unhandled Exception Jul 20 '12 at 13:22
They're not just missing...they're out of order! See . Ordered by votes the questions go "16, 0, -7" and then the next page is back to 16! It's gone mad I tell you, mad! – Ben Brocka Jul 20 '12 at 20:31
I've seen this on occasion for at least the past few months, though not worked so hard to get a reproducible test case. For testing, be wary of ignored tags clouding the issue as they can produce the same effect under the right circumstances. – blahdiblah Jul 20 '12 at 23:05

Well, that's just annoying! Some glitch; it wouldn't be very interesting to go into details, other that to say "it didn't quite do what we wanted it to". It is being a bit more obedient now, I think.

But now how will I know which of my completely baseless and speculative explanations was the most incorrect?! Well, I suppose as long as it's fixed... – Tim Stone Jul 21 '12 at 1:26
