    I have some threads in my top toolbar in Netspace. When I click on them, I'm always sent to the first page, and have to scroll the list to find the last page.

    This is not a horrible problem, but it can be annoying. Is there anything I can put at the end of the link to go to the last page instead?

    From
    http://boards.theforce.net/message.asp?topic=6713502&start=13104918

    To
    http://boards.theforce.net/message.asp?topic=6713502&end

    Or
    http://boards.theforce.net/message.asp?topic=6713502&lastpage

    This doesn't help with your problem (I admit I'd like such a feature myself)... but you don't need to scroll the page to get the row of page numbers. It also appears at the top of the thread. :)

    I think a "Get Last Post" option would be better. For example, the P=S thread in AotC has a lot of deleted posts, and there's a phantom page that gets really annoying.

    Do it like this. Make the "page" number ridiculously high, say "10000", and the thread will open on the last page.

    &page=10000

    eg. the last page of the Geriatric Ward (presently 58 pages (at 50ppp)) will come up via this link;

    [link=http://boards.theforce.net/message.asp?topic=12940464&page=10000]http://boards.theforce.net/message.asp?topic=12940464&page=10000[/link]

    It will occasionally on some threads, but not all.
