Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

Goto Page...

I think we need a better "Goto Page" system. I mean, we have a decent system now... if the thread is five pages long. I mainly frequent SE++, so I don't know how long threads in other forums get, but I say improvement in nessaccary. What I propose is that we have a "Jump to page" option. This would allow the user to input a page number, and then press "Go," or some sort of button... you could figure it out. After selecting "Go," the thread would automaticaly skip to that page. I'm not sure how hard this would be, but it doesn't seem too bad. I think it's a nice alternative to hitting "Next" a lot, especially if it is a NSF56K thread. Comments? Ideas? Is it feasable?

Let the ruling classes tremble at a Communist revolution. The proletarians have nothing to lose but their chains. They have a world to win.

    Real Life Forums has that feature, but it's needed so rarely that it might as well not be there. I guess it could be useful on things like chat threads that grow exponentially, but in general, it seems kinda unneccessary.

    Is multiplying by 25 really that hard?

    I was just thinking this myself as I was digging 20 pages back looking for a link in the anime thread. And before someone says it, sometimes Search just won't help.

    Personally I'd do it with a javascipr prompt. Ugly as shit but it's quick and dirty with basically no load on the server

    <a onClick="var url='urlWithoutPostNumber&post=';var page=prompt('What Page You Fucker?'); url = url+(page*25); document.location.href=url;">Go To Page</a>

    Thats not a bad idea. I was going to do a nice little drop down thing so it would look like this
    1..2..3..4..5.. [ ## ] ..95..96..97..98..99..100

    a dropdown with 100 items isn't really "nice".

    It's a bit better than having to change through the pages slowly, though...

    Not like you couldn't just tap '7' to get into the 70s. Pressing a number key a few times is still a lot quicker than going page by page.

    particularly not on shitty browsers *cough*IE*cough*, I've seen big drop downs lag on IE before.

    On a completly unrelated note, I think +/- 1 errors like that are probably one of the lagest sources of bugs.

    Um...a dropdown with a scroll bar when it gets larger? Is that not possible? :P

    It's browser dependendant how it renders a drop down, most of them put a scroll. But I've still seen them lag in IE
