    Question

    When attempting to move manually via the 'offset' URL parameter to a high search result page in Primo, “Limited results found” error is displayed.

    Why?

    Answer

    In general, Primo cannot processes more than ~100 results at a time.
    It may cause timeouts which will slow down the whole system and can expose Primo to dos attacks.
    For this reason the paging mechanism allows jumping up to 2 pages ahead. (=the bar at the bottom of the page).

    If user wish to use the 'offset' URL parameter, it is recommended to jump with segments of 100.
