Permalink Goto Page enhancement

New Topic
Page 1 of 1

Maybe it's me but on threads with many pages it seems the only choices are previous and next. You can click on say page five and it will add a couple pages but it would be nice to click on Goto and have the ability to type in a page number to skip to it.

Thank You!

I know Brian is working on an overhaul so that is a great idea. In the meantime, you can change the page number in the URL.

https://surfguitar101.com/forums/forum/gear/?page=2

Just change the 2 at the end to the page number you want to go to.

Are you just randomly looking at pages? Just curious what your use case is.

Did you know we have a search function?

Yeah that's a good work-around for now.

Am new here and am going through the topics sequentially. So far I've read up to page 56 in the gear posts. Would like to use the Goto to go to Page 57. Will use the URL suggestion mentioned above in the meantime.

You mentioned the search function. Does it search for a page number?

Thanks!

No, it doesn't search by page. Pages are meaningless because as new topics are added, all the topics shift down to other pages, so to speak. Searching will help you find something you are interested in by keywords.

Modifying the page parameter in the URL as Jake suggested is probably the best thing for you to do for now.

Don't forget you can bookmark pages with your browser if you are doing this over multiple browsing sessions...

BTW, I think you are the first person I've heard of in 10 years that is reading every single gear forum thread... Shock Wink

Am reading EVERY page in all sections. Already done with the musicians topics. I'm mesmerized by this place. Surf music was my first love (am 66) and has come back with a vengeance. Have even started a surf band.

Call me obsessive.

Glad you are enjoying the site GregEL!
