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 ;)

    They're not just missing...they're out of order! See workplace.stackexchange.com/questions?page=4&sort=votes . 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!

  • 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.

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...
