We've been testing the search in AtoM 2.2 and came across an issue when you filter by top level of description.

This is what happens currently:

  • do a basic search for anything that produces a lot of results
  • in the results list scroll to the bottom and click on the last page of results
  • then in the left side bar filter the results to top level descriptions only
  • No results are displayed because the page number in the url hasn't been set back to the first page

Seems similar to the issue described here that has been fixed already: https://projects.artefactual.com/issues/5943

The other filter options seem to be working fine.

I've reproduced this in both 2.2 and 2.3. You can also recreate it by simply:
  • Navigate to browse page
  • Remove top-level filter
  • Go to last page of results
  • Re-apply top-level filter
Resulting error
  • User is directed to an empty search results page
  • See attached screenshot (2.2)
Expected result
  • User is on a page with results. If it's easiest, then we should return them to the beginning of the result set.
