    For now, there isn't an easy way, but I think you'll be happy with something we're working on and hope to have out soon!

    Here's a helpful way -

    Say I want page 1016 of the Marans thread. Look at the URL of where you're at. You'll notice while in a thread, your URL ends with the page number you're at. Replace it with the page you want to be on.

    Here's the Marans thread URL . . .

    https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=383387&p=1 <--- page 1 by default

    Here's the Marans thread on page 1016 . . .

    https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=383387&p=1016 <--- your new page number

    Hope that helps! [​IMG]

    Say you're on p=101 - delete the 101, enter 234, then enter. Takes you right there.

    I just noticed the drop down menu for the page number. When did that get added? And, is that the cool new feature you were talking about? COOL!! [​IMG]
