when topics have more than 1 page, have the option 2 just straight to page X rather than goin 2 page 1 then to the last page. would mean less pages opened

any1 else think this is a gud idea?

Good idea, but where would you be able to click on the button to take you to page X?

I've changed the settings for my account so more messages (40) are displayed per page

I don't actually as it will clutter up the screen, even with a drop down list or something. Some threads have a lot of pages, the biggest has over 800.

Why don't you juist use the two little arrow things that take you to either the last post in the thread or the first post since you last looked at the thread.

On most forums, long threads have a little bar under each thread that says

1 2 3 ... 7 8 9 (assuming the thread has 9 pages, obviously it can be generalised to 1 2 3 ... n-2 n-1 n for threads of n pages). This gives you the ability to jump to pages, and you can immediately see how many pages a thread has.

That feature was included before the software was upgraded in april. Since then it hasn't been reenabled. When a thread has a huge number of pages it just listed the last few page numbers. It was probably removed due to drain on server.
