I was wondering why every pagination is starting by page "1".
< More Recent - ... | 2 | 3 | 4 | ... - Older >
In this case, the first page is displaying the latest results.
It also means that the first page is always displaying different results.
It's also like if you had a book finishing by page 1.
Now, let's say that our page 1 represents our oldest entries.
< More Recent - 125 | 124 | 123 | ... - Older >
In this case, the page 124 will always display the same results (unless we delete an item of course).
Page 1 will also always contain the first entries made in the database.
So my stupid question is:
why are we still using the page 1 for the more recent entries?
Reversing the order might be better for SEO, better for retrieving items based on the URL, and I might forget other good points.
Concerning the cons, I see a bad readability when we reach high numbers:
< More Recent - 1253 | 1252 | 1251 | ... - Older >
