Fix issue with album and artist search page

Ciarán Ainsworth requested to merge fix-search-page-bug into develop

Currently, the artist and album search pages have an interesting bug when searching through pages and then applying searches.

Steps to replicate

  • Go to
  • Go to the artist search page
  • Go to page 2
  • Type in a search for an artist like "Omri Lahav"

What is expected?

The artist should appear as they definitely exist

What happens?

The artist does not appear

This is because the page is updated when the pagination is used, which means the form submission is actually searching for page 2 of the paginated search results. This MR introduces a simple fix to reset the value of page when the form is submitted so that any new search term automatically defaults to the first page.
