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. Feb 27, 2011 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).
