Hey Freitasm.. any chance of when opening a post, that the page numbers are placed in the top bar like they are in the bottom?

I know they are down the bottom to enourage reading, but in the name of speedy perusing, especiallt from temporary locations, it might help?

Only a small query really as it may be completely time consuming for such a little thing.

I like it, but then one can just add

"&page_no=<NUMBER eg 1>" to then end of a forum URL like

http://www.geekzone.co.nz/forums.asp?forumid=4&topicid=9570


thus becoming http://www.geekzone.co.nz/forums.asp?forumid=4&topicid=9570&page_no=1

Works the same and isn't the most convenient thing ever but you may get geek points for it!

Heh, you can also click the little 2 in the forum link when its first displayed, but sometimes I want to jump straight to the last reply once I'm in the post yenno :)

I'd agree with the general idea of putting page links at the top of the page.

Sometimes scrolling down on a mobile device just to switch pages is a drag....

Maybe add it after the subscription features are finished. Its not really a major problem/annoyance.

No its not, I agree :)

Hence being a tad cheeky and suggesting it because its not a major issue but an interesting little observation that I'm glad I'm not the only one that might find it useful :)

Yes a good idea
