Hi. When in "Stories" quick search I tried to search for author 'Mark Arbour' with no luck.

There is no quick search under the category "Authors".

The stories index is now completely useless. I had gone back to the first stories posted, which are on page 975, and was making my way page by page towards page 1 reading the completed stories. I was enjoying reading the older stories and enjoying the journey by seeing how the stories and content has been improving over the years and being able to read a story series in the order that it was posted. I'd got to page 742 reading stories posted in 2011 but now it doesn't matter how I try I can't continue reading in reverse chronological order as no matter what link I try I end up at the start of the story index on page 1 of 325! It appears that the stories index and stories search is totally inoperable. 🤔

Stories quick Search is for Story Titles.  So this is working as intended.

I can see how you might be confused, as the Red Menu "Authors" link previously brought you to the About Authors page which describes are various author groups.  There is a hnday YouTube video that shows how to use the two quick search features:

This is obnoxious hyperbole and it helps no one.  Do not do it again.

This is incorrect.

 

When you go to the Stories main page, which linked as "Stories" in the red menu, page only shows 5 stories.  The pagination on that page is confusing as it shows currently 925 pages.  This is based on 5 stories per page.  As soon as you select a different page, it jumps the display from 5 to 15 stories per page.  And thus the total page count drops from 925 to 325.  Going backwards, there would be no display issues.  So where you left off is probably around page 261.

 

There is a bug in that going from page 1 to page 2, it skips 10 stories.  Going back to page 1 shows them all.  That is a bug.

What I described is true and has now changed, that is what I was informing you about. When I clicked the link (the one after the last page number shown) to go the end of the listing the stories now start at those posted in 2016 which meant that I could not get to the stories posted prior to that. 

I'll not comment further as it's obvious to me that my earlier comment was not understood or wanted.
