Forum Query

Post by VisaGTi16v » 17 Jun 2004, 03:50

Admins etc:
Just wondering, why is it on the main pages showing all the threads you can only select the next page via the drop down menu, ie to go to page 2
However if you go into a thread which has multiple pages of posts, you get a "next page" link which I find better for quick navigation

That is purely due to the way the forum software works. The pages for a single thread are at the next 'level' below those of a topic group.
The software designer simply chose to have a combo box (drop down) instead of 'next' and 'previous' links, so that is how it is, good or bad.

Have to agree with Darren, "Next" button would be nice.
Snitz is freeware, but not sure about open source, is it not possible to hack the forum code?
Or maybe perhaps embed a cheap bodge like this somewhere:

Code: Select all

Page<a href="forum.asp?FORUM_ID=2&whichpage=1">1</a>
<a href="forum.asp?FORUM_ID=2&whichpage=2">2</a>
<a href="forum.asp?FORUM_ID=2&whichpage=3">3</a>

Thats just my $0.02
