As I was filing this bug report, I wanted to provide deep links into specific bounty pages to demonstrate my issue. When utilizing the "permalink" option at the bottom of each page, I found that this isn't possible.

To demonstrate my issue, repeat the following steps:

  • Go to a tag that has more than one page of questions. We'll use (here) for this example
  • Scroll to the bottom and go to any page other than 1 and watch the address bar as the page loads.
  • Notice the the address bar first loads this (with a page parameter)

    https://stackoverflow.com/?page=3&pagesize=50&tags=python
    

    Then redirects to this (without a page parameter).

    https://stackoverflow.com/questions/new/python?show=all&sort=newest
    

I got the link with the page parameter by right clicking on the "3" in the navigation and selecting "Save Link Location"

If you select the "Permalink" at the bottom of the now loaded page 3, the page will reload to page one and the second link (without the parameter) will load:

https://stackoverflow.com/questions/new/python?show=all&sort=newest

  • Use the link before the redirection to hotlink?

  • That link is the same as the redirected one. The only way to get the deep link, that I can see, is via the method I used above. The URL bar shows, effectively, the same link on page one as page 3 - except for a very brief flicker right at page load.
