Hi! I'm new, so if I missed some protocol for posting this, please let me know.

Anyways, I tried searching under the category "Valentine's Day" 27s+Day
but couldn't get past the 1st page. When I try to get to any of the other pages, it looks like this: ry=Valentine%5C%27s+Day

I even tried to set the page to show more or less than 25 entries, but met with the same problem:
(the above is set for 50 entries)

I surmised that this problem might occur with other Categories that have apostrophes, so I checked the following:

Love Interests Who Don't Get Along,
Boys' Love as a Subplot,
Seeing Things Other Humans Can't,
Girls' Love as a Subplot, and
Female-Oriented Girls' Love.

Basically, these are all the categories that have apostrophes and are shown with more than 1 page for entry results. The same thing happened with these categories, as well.

Any suggestions?

The database tends to have some problems with apostrophes and quotes (for example, if you search for a series name in quotes in Series Info, you can't see past page 1). Unfortunately, I can't think of any work-around for the problem you're having. (I was going to suggest using the advanced search feature to enter the tag and at the same time select & filter certain genres according to what you want to see, so that your results will fit on one page. Then you'd be likely to find what you're looking for. But I can't get the search to come up with any results when I use a tag with an apostrophe...) I apologize, but it'll have to wait until one of the coders has time to fix it.
