Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

On SO, the number of questions and users has grown significantly. So much so that if I want to look at pages further down the line, I can only show 50 questions per page, and the page advancers only move up to 2 pages at a time. I am working if there will be a goto page option, or increase the number of questions per page, or increase the amount you can click to (by like 10 pages or so)?

I can see why this would look almost like an oversight during the initial design period. Jonathan did show that it was possible to skip around via the url, but I don't think it would be too much to ask to have a page number selector in the page listing either.

Hmm... Any other site (including future SE sites), i could see that. But is it really too much to ask that programmers understand how to edit URLs? – Shog9 Jul 10 '09 at 15:53
Its really more a question of usability. Surely we could drop all the page advancing options and just use the url... but is it really to much to ask programmers to implement a small change to create a better UI? – SwDevMan81 Jul 10 '09 at 19:50

You can go to page:

Just edit the page value.

Ha, yeah I guess I could do that, but it sure would be nice to have something on the site, but that could do – SwDevMan81 Jul 9 '09 at 12:01
