[0.1.11] - 2021-03-08

Not sure why but I keep receiving requests with an invalid page parameter which is handled correctly by the pagy gem and raises an exception every time, resulting in a lot exception emails, I decided handle those exceptions in the code and ignore the page parameter in that case (and not raise an error instead).
