    That is what happens? Click 1: opens menu click 2: mark community read. Done.

    Because you may wish to simply make part of the site as read - might include third party apps as well.

    VNC I can understand (although it is not working at the moment), but on the forums not so important.

    I'd like to be proven wrong, but the number of new posts must already be available in the code - how else will the pagination know when to actually appear on the page and when it's not necessary. ;)

    Should be a simple change when the Beta is released.

    If IPS aren't going to bring back Pagnation then there's little point in having the 6 month and 1 year filter options. To get to the last page of the last year's VNC results here on IPS's own site requires the Next button to be pressed 948 times.

    I also want the number of results back as well. This then gives me some idea of how long it will take me to get up to date. Now with 3.2 I don't know and I don't know how many pages of results there are.

    Crazy!!

    Hello,

    The advanced search has pagination, so it's not hard to place it in the vnc.
    Another thing that is missing is the counter of unread content.

    Please bring those back.

    Ever since we went to 3.2, this has been one thing that has been a pain in the butt for me. I browse these forums and go through the VNC list to find topics that I want to help with, go through page 1, go through page 2, etc., but then when I'm on a page past the first couple and respond to a topic there, I have to go back into the VNC list and keep hitting next to get back to where I was.

    Even if we had the option to enter a page number to jump to, and got told that there aren't any results on that page, that would be better than having to keep hitting next to get to where we want, since each new page reload is just more resource-intensive calculating it has to do.

    1. Possible to move 'explore content from the community' to the empty white space on the top?

    2. Would it be possible to add old 3.1.x style navigation? i.e. Instead of just PREV | NEXT, how about:

    1 | 2 | 3 | 4 -- 14 | NEXT

    PREV | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 -- 14 | NEXT

    I personally liked the 3.1.x style navigation because it always told me I have xx number of unread pages and it's also easy to go back and forth. e.g. Sometimes you keep in mind, in page 4 there is something interesting to read based on topic title but at the same time you want to have a quick glance on what's going around. So you end up checking all unread pages quickly and then you come back to page 4 to read your unread topic.

    Thanks.

    i am going to have to agree that pagination on VNC is necessary - for the reasons I have stated time and again. If you start out on 24 hours and then change your scope to 1 week or longer you have to start from page 1 and click until you get to the point you left off.

    The server just requested MORE results but you still only see the first 25 so now your users must tax the server by hitting next umpteen times just to get back to where they were.

    So really what is more server intensive - these seems like needless and useless queries?

    I am humbly - PLEADING - please have an option to paginate & navigate day by day and allow users to step back for any given day.

    The returned set of records would be much more finite making it easier to calculate the number of pages.

    If you have 100 post in a day and there are 25 posts displaying in the VNC you would have 4 pages. - now that wasn't hard.

    Sandi - Pagnation is not graphics intensive so there's almost no overhead for your members downloading. The highlighting / colours is all done with css. The resource issue if there is one is on your hosts server.

    Following the logic of removing pagnation from VNC results should we not also remove it from multi page topics? I want it in VNC results just like with topics so that I can more easily browse the pages. For example if I've been away for a few days I often want to start with the last page. Now with 3.2 I have keep clicking the next button to get to the last page.

    You can almost guarantee those coming from VBulletin will be asking for this.

    I miss pagnation as well. If it's resource intensive then it was on 3.1 as well and it wasn't an issue then. Let's not overdo the resource issue thing otherwise we might as well go back to a non graphic type forum from 10-15 years ago. It doesn't seem to be a problem with Xenforo and VBulletin as shown below

    What would be very resource intensive is the silly options in VNC for recent posts 6 months and 12 months ago.

    I'll pay for a hook that adds pagnation back in. I want it and I'm sure a few of members will complain when they see it's missing.

    One thing I do not want to be doing is putting stuff back in that was removed to make things "pretty". I already have enough edits to do with major updates. I don't need more just because someone thought it was "pretty" or it added too much overhead. If keeping the page numbers along with the other changes created an issue, the answer should not have been to remove pagination.

    I understand it is resource intensive but think about it as the tracker for example.

    Wouldn't you like to know that there are 18 pages of bugs or messages to fix/read instead of showing the front page only and a NEXT button?
    If the reason is only to save on resources then I would suggest creating a new tab in the ACP called Load Management or Resources Management and putting settings there that can be turned on or off depending on the platform or strength of the server. I run a top of the line quad prod raided machine with a strong database...I can afford the extra resources to improve presentation.

    just my 2 cents, this was just feedback. If people require it I am sure a mod will be made. I only think this was part of the usability of previous themes and removing it creates a need for it.

    Yeah. While pagination may be resource intensive, there has to be a fine balance somewhere. If the page count were to disappear suddenly on my site, I'd have users screaming bloody blue murder. At least make it an option we can choose to turn on and off.

    I just noticed that clicking the view new content only shows NEXT and PREVIOUS for pagination.
    Is this intended? If you have 200 pages to go through you only see NEXT to move to the next page?

    What is the reason to have removed the pagination? just wondering...

    I miss the pagination. It's useful to know how many pages total you have to browse through as well as how far into the total you are.

    Most other sites have this feature, Google, Digg and Reddit, to name a few. It helps to wade through large search results.
