  • I got the same error when I entered this url and went to subsequent pages:

    https://social.msdn.microsoft.com/forums/azure/en-US/home?category=windowsazureplatform

    That category resulted in about 65 or so forums, accounting for the long url. I would email fissues [at] Microsoft [dot] com, with the above url and explain that you get an error when paging.

    Edit: I emailed the forum admins at fissues. Waiting for reply. Forums may have been added to that category recently. I think there are 69.

  • I have not gotten a reply from engineering yet, and I still get the error when I go to page 3 of the url I linked before. But I noticed when I went from page 1 to page 2, the number of forums doubled, from 69 to 138. I get the error on page 3. I tried the same thing with this url for a category of forums:

    https://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/home?category=biztalkserver

    When I went from page 1 to 2, the number of forums doubled, from 5 to 10. Going to page 3 or 4 did not increase the number of forums any further.

    I don't know why I only got the error on page 3 of the first url, if the number of forums is the same on pages 2 and 3 (I assume). But this seems to be a bug in the way categories of forums is handled in the browser.

    Edit: By the way, the problem is the same for me in Edge and IE 11.

  • Something must have changed in the backend because paging used to just append and increment &page=500 in the URL like below

    https://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/azure/en-US/home?category=windowsazureplatform&page=500

     another change is if you entered in a page higher than exists we used to just get a blank page returned

    https://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/azure/en-US/home?category=windowsazureplatform&page=1000

    but now we get The search service is down. Please link directly to threads and come back later.
