It’s a little tricky, but look at the URL at the top of this page. There are parameters that say “topic=513410” and “forum=40”. If there were a second (or higher) page to this thread, you would also see “Start=30”

“Start” tells the browser what post number to put at the top of the page. There are always a maximum of 30 posts per page, and the first post begins at 0 (zero).

So take whatever page number you want to get to and multiply by 30. For page 63 that would be 1890. In your chosen forum, go to the address bar and change the start number to 1890. If you don’t see a start number (they don’t appear on the first page) you can add “&start=1890” to the URL (no spaces). Be sure to backspace (delete) the number to the right of to the last ampersand (that’s the number of posts minus one).

Or just click to the second page and change the 30 to 1890.

Voila! You should be on page 63.

Really makes you miss DOS, huh? Smile

basically this is correct however in this case, instead of changing the start to 1890, you change it to 1860. In other words, If you want page 63, multiply 62 x 30 and change the start to 1860. If you wanted page 50, multiply 49 times 30 or 1470.

This page seems to be the only page I can write on .... and I thought I was a (sort of!) Magician.

John, there should be a box at the bottom of your screen that allows you to post.
