The pagination at the bottom of the users pages uses links that have all the parameter delimiters (&) escaped to &.

The overall users rank page for example, links to https://stackoverflow.com/users?page=2&tab=reputation&filter=all instead of to https://stackoverflow.com/users?page=2&tab=reputation&filter=all. Because of this the weekly rank, page two, is shown instead.

This is not limited to just the user pages; it appears that all pagination links are affected.

  • The same problem can be seen with search result pagination, this example search renders the link to page 2 as https://stackoverflow.com/search?page=2&tab=relevance&q=python%20list%20comprehension. The second page returns no results because of this.
  • The tag page pagination links to https://stackoverflow.com/questions/tagged/python?page=2&sort=newest&pagesize=50. Page two is returned but any sorting or page size parameters are lost. Because the site uses cookies for the sort and pagesize parameters this problem is less severe.
  • For 10k+ users, you can filter the review queue history page to show only your own reviews; when you switch that on the pagination links there are broken as well: https://stackoverflow.com/review/close/own/history?page=2&userid=100297 for the close review history page, page two, filtered on my own reviews.

The footer software revision is rev 2013.8.30.981 and this problem appears to be browser independent.

    @animuson: it looks like most (all?) paginations are affected. Commented Aug 30, 2013 at 21:18
  • Really, downvotes on a confirmed, now fixed, bug? I'd love to hear the rationale for that voting behaviour. Commented Oct 27, 2013 at 15:11
