How I arrived here.

Logged in.
Clicked on my username from the homepage.
Clicked on the number next to 'Favorited by others' on my user page.
Clicked on 'next page' which takes me to here

Remainder of favorites displayed.

Displaying x-x, but none actually displayed.

Interesting. Similarly, the last page of my favorited-by-others that has content also provides a "next" link that goes to a page with no real content.

I think Matt may just be not conditionally stripping the nav links.

Also, there's an weird factor-of-2 disparity between your number-of-favorites

Favorites: 56

and the number listed on the actual favorites page:

Displaying 1 through 28 posts

I don't have the same discrepancy with mine, and I've only got 87 total. Very weird.

The page numbering on that feature has always been screwy. It's due to the fact that it's displaying two columns of unrelated numbered things (posts and comments), and also that it doesn't know in advance how many actual items it's going to be displaying, i.e. "favorited 28 times" could mean one comment 28 times or 28 comments 1 time. Thus the page numbering is really confusing, you can get a bunch of extra blank pages, repeated pages, etc. Just Live With It.™ I'm positive this has been reported before numerous times.

What Rhombold said, but really the only solution I can imagine would be completely reworking the page to more more like a flickr photo history page showing who favorited what and when.

I've noticed this problem, too, but hadn't gotten around to posting about it. Thank you, pieoverdone!

Is there a reason that favorite posts and favorite comments can't be on separate pages?
