    Is there a way to browse between pages in a thread besides using the drop-down menus? If not, how about installing arrows next to the drop down menus to enable people to go to the next (or previous) page of a thread? This would be particularly helpful on threads with a lot of pages (like the mug shot thread, which I navigated through tonight). Another possibility is to use individually numbered page links like at the Army and (gasp!) the Dome. I'm sure this has been suggested before, but I thought it was worth a shot.

    No kiddin'! It's the only aspect of this latest kick-ass design that has me goin, "huh?"

    I wouldn't mind if those arrows supplied just navigated us through the pages, rather than the topics...

    I hafta agree here. While VHForums has always been a well-designed site, the drop-down thing has always bugged me. I hate having to make an extra click and scroll just to navigate between pages.

    I agree!

    I also think the "next thread" and "previous thread" arrow buttons should actually be links to pages within the current thread. I like the drop-down menu better than the list of numbered links, but I think having next/previous arrows as well would be great.

    Gosh, we're picky.

    Such angry visitors. [img]smile.gif[/img] The drop down box was created to get rid of all the ugly numbers that stretch browsers horizontally on multi-page threads, and I know myself I have been annoyed that those arrows take you to the next topic, not the next page of the current thread. It might take an extra step to go to the next page right now with the drop down, but aesthetically it just looks much better and cleaner.

    As far as getting some arrows to take you to the next page of a thread, I will see what I can cook up.

    And so it has been done....Look next to the topic name on multipage threads, and you will see a « Prev and Next » where you can jump to the next page in a thread.

    Thanks Brett! Very cool.

    P.S. I know you were joking, but I definitely was not an angry visitor. Great site you've got here.
