Biographies section glitch on Libcom

Hi, I hope this is the right place to post this question about the Biographies section on Libcom.
When I use the numbers at the bottom of the page to get to other Biographies I only ever see an article titled"
"Four years later, still a graveyard of Chinese youth". Just wondering if there is a glitch?

Hey, thanks for posting.

Firstly, the biography section all fits on one page:
http://libcom.org/history/biographies

secondly, there is an intermittent problem with paging across the whole site, so maybe this is what you're experiencing? As we can't fix it at the moment, a workaround you can use is right click on the "next" page link and click "copy shortcut", then paste that in the address bar

I think maybe rat is talking about paging at http://libcom.org/tags/biographies , which has the same problem as all other tag pages.

By the way, the filtering by letter on the http://libcom.org/history/biographies page doesn't seem to do anything, for me anyway.

Hi Steven,
Thanks for the info. The http://libcom.org/history/biographies page is really useful.
I can also see what Spassmaschine means about the alphabetical filter not having an effect. I'm currently trying to go through all of these Libcom Biographies and using Twitter to link to them.

Yeah, thanks and yes that paging doesn't really do anything, that's another weird problem which hopefully should be sorted when we get round to an upgrade
