Getting to the last page of a post
Posted by 50 Coupe on Friday, December 14, 2012 11:59 AM

How do I get to page 50 of a post without having to go through every page?

On other forums, all I have to do is hover over the up arrow and a window pops up, I type in what page number I'd like to go to and bam, I'm there.

Is there an easy way?

At the top and bottom of a thread you will see buttons with page numbers. If you click the the arrow, it will take you to the last page of the thread.

You'll see a column called Topic then another column called Date. In the Date column, click Latest Post and you will go directly to the end of the posts for that topic.

Thanks for the tips.  They're helpful, but it will still take me 5 minutes to get to page 50 of a post with 90 pages.    Confused

No fair changing the rules...you didn't say 50 out of 90 nor did you indicate you wanted to go to a specific page.

Let's see...90 pages at approximately 15 posts per page...get real!

With regards to getting to the last page (as indicated in your title) you've been given two viable options.

I didn't "change the rules", nobody answered my question.  

I ran across a post the other day that I hadn't seen before, it had so many pages that I didn't have enough time to look at them all in one sitting. I went back the next day, knowing what page I stopped looking at, but it took me 10 minutes to get to the page I left off on.  I was just wondering if there was some short cut I didn't know about.

I'm sorry I offended you with my poor choice of words when asked what I thought was a simple question.

No offense taken.
