I stumbled upon this web site about a month ago, and I love it. However …. In as much as there are 60 or 70 thousand projects displayed on several thousand pages, a method of navigating more rapidly would be nice. Previous and Next are helpful for moving one page at a time, and the very last page is available. Maybe a feature that would enable the user to enter a page number could be included. Otherwise (and I’ve done this), you could spend an hour trying to view projects in the middle of the pack that probably never get viewed.

Click on the “projects” tab and scroll down to the bottom. Pagination links are there. You can change the page number in the url on the address bar.

Just enter the page number in the URL. I asked the same question a couple of years back.

I use both strategies, above—the projects page numbering system as well as the address link

I’ve got the same problem but never raised for a question. I’m glad you posted it. Thanks!

QUESTION: Since page #1 is always changing daily/hourly, how can someone keep tabs on what page to look on for a particular object/project noticed earlier?

If oldest were listed as page #1 and newest as page #4659 then each project would have a permanent location/page and NOT one that would change daily. Just a thought.

HorizontalMike,

THAT is an excellent suggestion.

Favoriting is about the only way. It’s “free”, so even if you only think there’s a remote chance you’ll ever want to go back and revisit it, “pay the insurance” and favorite it. The only other way I can think of is to remember where it is relative to one of your projects, but favoriting is easier. Even if you overdo it and end up with 20 pages worth, that’s still a lot easier than 4000.

I agree with MichaelT77. This is actually the reason that I came to this forum. Was thinking of posting the same suggestion that he did.

I’m also new to the site and would like to look at some of the older posts. I understand, and will use, the suggestions of changing the page # in the URL. However, the site is very well built so I imagine the builder is quite programming-savvy and could fairly easily add a “Go to page” box at the bottom.

Have your say...
