Probably a dumb question, but is there a way to jump to a specific page in a sub-forum? Or am I missing something obvious?

e.g. -- A subject has 150 pages of comments. You read through the first 20 pages and return later to read the following pages. Instead of flicking through pages 1, 2, 3, 4 etc is it possible to jump to page 21 immediately?

Basic answer is no unless you bookmark the page. you can howerver jump pages in increments of 5 or so.

The trick is to open the last page and then edit the URL in the address bar.
The 'say hello' thread is standing at 168 pages at the moment and the URL of the last page is
Code:
http://urbanglasgow.co.uk/ftopic9-1670.php

simply edit the last part of the URL to show
Code:
http://urbanglasgow.co.uk/ftopic9-200.php

to show page 21

OK cybers, thanks! I'll try bookmarking each time I leave a page as doing 20-30 reloads, 4 or 5 pages at a time, would be a pain.

Or maybe it'd be easier to use AlanM's suggestion re: altering the URL....

Thanks to both of you!
