I have a SharePoint 2013 site collection with a search center site. On the default search results page we can see two issues related to the no. of items in the results.
- On the first page of results there are 3 paging buttons ("1", "2" and "next button"). As we navigate to second and third (and so on) pages of the results, the paging button starts increasing. From a UI perspective this doesn't look good. The users prefer a consistent no. of paging buttons on all pages.
- The search count is inconstant and it varies its value across different results pages.
We believe both issues are related. We would like to confirm if these are really bugs (can see same even in Office 360) and if yes are there any confirmation from Microsoft? Does anyone know how can we fix these issues (at least the #1) without waiting for an official patch from Microsoft.
