What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 128 Stack Exchange communities.

This question already has an answer here:

If I were to explore the questions in a tab whose result set returns 1000+ questions, how do I get to Page 250 without traversing the set 5 pages at a time?

I strongly feel that many questions become "buried" and untouched just because they are in the middle. If you chart it, chances are pages 1323 and a few pages back get explored more often than any of those lying in middle space "limbo".

enter image description here

My point: there should a Go to Page: ____. at the bottom of the post.

Have you tried editing the URL? –  Mysticial Apr 6 '13 at 7:09

Click on page 2. Look at the URL. Where it says page=2, change to page=250. Press Enter. Presto! –  Oded Apr 6 '13 at 7:09

I would argue to use the filters (or focus on ways to improve the filters). That said, I'm not opposed to the idea. –  Tim Medora Apr 6 '13 at 8:10

You can set page number from the URL. Set page argument here like this:

http://stackoverflow.com/questions/tagged/c%23?page=250&sort=newest&pagesize=50
                                               ^^^^^^^^                        

So you can directly redirect to page no XXX

e.g. http://stackoverflow.com/questions/tagged/c%23?page=250&sort=newest&pagesize=50

Oh yeah, good point. –  Ronixus Apr 6 '13 at 7:10

Is it still a good point when you consider the variety of StackExchange websites not devoted to programmer communities - communities of people who won't find editing the URL in this way intuitive? –  Richard JP Le Guen Apr 6 '13 at 7:12

Anyway, I suppose it wouldn't hurt to add the function to the screen, rather than having to edit the URL manually every time. But it's a good work around, as it addresses my concern. :) –  Ronixus Apr 6 '13 at 7:13

Agree Richard. While it may suffice for SO, it wouldn't for StackExchange as a whole. :) –  Ronixus Apr 6 '13 at 7:14
