Floris has been kind enough to produce a video showing our page navigation system in action, so I will just link to his video and you can see it for yourself:


A few things to note:
  • When the page loads, the only page links that are in the HTML are the ones that are visible. The links that appear when you scroll the gadget are generated with Javascript, so they don't suck up resources when they are not required.
  • This system is most useful for navigating 50ish pages. For a greater span of pages, we will be putting in a 'jump to page' function shortly.
Edit: September 12th 2010 - You can now go nuts with these things in the PageNav Playground!

That's a very nice concept there! :) Just wondering what it would be like in practise though with a huge 200+ page thread...

Jeez, you guys are really pushing the envelope. Just when I thought forums were basically the same, you come along. Awesome work

could we use the jump to page function for any number of pages, or will be limited to a predetermined amount?

Ah, no I'm talking about an overlay that would open to allow you to enter a page number and jump to that.
