Hi Trevor Fayas,
I had tried your solutions, but not get lucky, did i make something wrong ?
I had zone with repeater on it, make sure both zone and repeater checked "Update Panel"
Another zone with universal pager on it, and both zone and pager checked "Update Panel". Pager using mode "Query String" and connect to repeater.
After post back, click on next page, update panel not working, it still reload.
