StumbleUpon: Edge case?

26 Sep

For those that don’t know, ‘edge cases’ are something that only happen in extreme cases. Rare, but also cause a bit of headaches.

So I was looking at the Stumble Upon reviews of CSS Basics (a site we own), when I laughed at the last page.

On the bottom is a ‘Next »’ even though it is the last page. Clicking on it takes you – nowhere. But what is more disappointing is that the page doesn’t even have 10 reviews (it is suppoused to be 10 reviews per page).

A small thing, not a big deal – but really that shouldn’t be happening.

I think the problem is that there are many thousands of CSS pages and you may not have the right keywords on it. It may be useful to note that myspace pages mostly depend on CSS. Also, get people to read your page by getting people to review your page. Note that your page has 5252 links on

I think you missed it – the point is their pagination code is wrong, and it is showing a ‘next’ (when it shouldn’t be).

Just bad coding there.
