Vendor search back button missing

If the result fills exact one page you can move forward one page but cannot flip back because the empty page has no buttons.

    Vendor search has a lot of reported issues that never got fixed. Add it to the list.
    Just a troll who got told by lesser trolls (moderator classification)

  • It's actually not a missing back button. 

    It's a "next page" button that shouldn't be there because there is nothing on the next page.

    Yup they fixed it so we do not have to search high and low to see everything.  Lets not mess that up.  I can live with an empty page.

    "Greetings, you recently removed the ability for EJ chars from using named vendor search to relieve stress on the engine,
    once you reach this blank page and not being able to go back is causing additional stress on the search engine as you have to unnecessarily perform the search again to go back. (and causing a time waste for the user)
    Expected result: for 'next page' button not to be displayed when there are 0 items on next page.

    Yes I think this is a good point.

    When we hit a blank page, we will need to perform the search again to go back to the earlier search results.

    Similarly when a search of say over 1000 results, show the first say 50 or 100 results. Then at then end when we click next, it searches next batch. But when we want to go back to first batch of 50 results, it’s has to be a new search? This also increases the load.

    @Bleak the above will reduce the number of re-search and hence load on the server.

    "what is very odd about this is, i actually have some results that do fill up the last page with 5 results, and does not generate a blank next page.Strange"

    It's a weird bug, but if they can prevent this and allow long results to append it could reduce VS load by 50%

    I think they added this blank page because a while back vendor search would not show the last page if it was not full.   So you had to do a Low to High and High to low search to see everything.

    Unless it still does not show the last page if it is not full.
