Stack Apps is a question and answer site for apps, scripts, and development with the Stack Exchange API. It's 100% free, no registration required.

The 1.1 API help text for search says that the pagesize parameter can go up to 100. Indeed, passing a value up to 100 returns some results, while passing pagesize=101 yields an HTTP 400 status (Bad Request). However, only up to 30 results are actually returned per page even if pagesize=100 (e.g. http://api.stackoverflow.com/1.1/search?tagged=c&pagesize=100).

I can reproduce this. Although the pagesize property is set to 100, only 30 results are returned. –  Nathan Osman Feb 27 '11 at 19:43

This has been fixed.

There was a bug with paging results coming from Lucene (which serves most, but not all, /search requests at this time).

Weirdly, api.stackoverflow.com/1.1/search?tagged=c&pagesize=100 returns only 99 questions. Going down, api.stackoverflow.com/1.1/search?tagged=c&pagesize=10 returns only the same 9 questions as api.stackoverflow.com/1.1/search?tagged=c&pagesize=9 . Is this by design (I can think of legitimate reasons such as a deleted question)? This makes me wonder how to get all the results of a search. –  Gilles Feb 28 '11 at 19:40
