The content of which unfortunately, is not the same as the original page. No filter on my account, sort is left as System default wich for page 1 is reported as sort by title.

I suspect either a cache polution (filter of another user) or some new feature (author custom sort?) not fully integrated in the paging.

This has been reported before.

Returning to page 1 gives the correct alphabetical order. Or you can request the stories to be sorted on title.

Damn, I have to revisit all author with more than 10 stories pages :(

It's a bug that happens when an author uses custom order for their home page.

I've rewritten the sorting algorithm three times already and I've yet to fix where this bug happens.

It's still on the 'to fix' list despite working on it for way too long.

To me, it looks like it's the buttons.
All the page buttons have &sf=alpha&so=asc (then the page number) so whatever sort order has been set in the backend is being overidden by the buttons.
Removing &sf=alpha&so=asc, but leaving &p=2 (or 3 etc) gives a very different list. Using &p=1 matches the default Author page.
(I have not checked the list for completness)

And finally in a moment of serendipitous clarity, I figured it out! FINALLY!!!

The data sanitizer I built into the theme builder was not allowing the option 'itsSequence' and was replacing it with the default.
