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

Does anyboy else find the Stack Exchange paginator (page selector) strange behaviour?

Pagination examples

It's ok at start, until...

  • Case 4., why there is no [6], as it looks like, this paginator shows two pages before, and two after.
  • Case 5., [2] is hidden behind [...], why you should hide only one number?
  • Case 6., same as in case 5., [97659] is hidden with [...].
  • Case 7., here is like it should be (not like in case 4.), two pages before current.

The thing is, I don't like that dynamic width (not speaking about next/prev dissapearing) of paginator and odd behaviour (cases 4., 5. and 6.).
