    Can We Have?…….

    Is this the right place to ask for something on the forum ?

    Jenna did ask if there was anything else I vaguely recall.

    Is it possible to have an “Autopager”?

    That is a function similar to the “add ons” on Firefox and Chrome where on multiple page threads
    all the pages are listed in one seamless and never ending page. I have found this a necessity
    on sites like E-Bay.

    Recently on our multiple pages threads such as he famous Virtual Pub, we get poor saps asking
    a questions or coming up with a blinding insight and because it is the last post on a page seconds
    later someone puts on a new post which starts a new page and your post is not even seen.

    Ahh I am old school and used to licking back and forth between pages, good point though.

    You mean within one board all of the threads are in a long never-ending page as opposed to selecting ‘next’ at the bottom of the page? Sorry if I sound stupid, just to clarify :)

    Just within the individual thread………..
    I notice people ask a question at the end of a page and people just do not see it.

    ….this is good, they have not told me to shut up and stop being ridiculous.

    I see what you mean…I know some people go back to a certain thing and know where to go because they’ve seen it on page 4, for instance, but then they could use the search.

    What does everyone else think of Taung’s idea??

    We had a conflab about it when we got to the end of pages at the Hub Pub…..

    and there was a small chorus of agreement.

    I think I have found a way……..

    or in Firefox browser anyway.

    In “Tools” the is a drop down menu “Add ons”. which includes one called “Autopager 0808”

    This Automatically loads the next page once you get to the bottom of a page. You are
    left with a seamless list of pages that you can scroll up and down even if it is 100 pages long.

    This add on by default works with E-Bay, Facebook and most commonly used sites but
    proprietary sites like ours usually need to be configured. Not quite sure how I did this
    but a bit of random clicking and it worked.
