I discovered for the first time yesterday, purely by accident, that there is an easy way to get to a particular page in a thread without going through multiple steps, particularly in a thread that has a lot of pages. I am not sure that the solution existed before in the old forum or whether it was added by the new forum software, but I am happy nonetheless to have found it.
Consider, for example, the Mellow Mushroom thread. It has 92 pages. If you look at the first page of the thread, at http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php/topic,3940.0.html,
you will see the numbering sequence [1
] 2 3 ... 92 just above and to the left of the topic heading. Now, let us assume that you want to get to page 45 in that thread. All you have to do is click on the dots between the numbers 3 and 92. You will then see the individual page numbers. In some cases with a really lot of pages, you may have to click on the dots more than once. That would be the case for say, to get to page 85 in the Mellow Mushroom thread.
The same method can be used to jump from one page to another.
