Allow better paging of lists of threads/messages
Open, LowestPublic


Each time when I select "mark as read" on a thread on the page "new messaegs (some number)" of my personal user-specific links, the page is redisplayed and both paging and scrolling are started from the newest thread. Since I do not mark newer threads as read before having read then, and I read them in roughly chronologial order, I have to page back to where I was before, then scroll down to where I was before, and continue reading. With several 100 threads and messages, this is extremely time consuming. I spend a magnitude more time waiting for pages to be sent to me just to immediately go to the next page, and scrolling down than actually reading. Unfortunately I do not have a choice to avoid using this extension, else I would.

Thus I suggest to enhance paging in a way allowing to jump to specific pages/threads/messages, e.g. via a numbered list of links, or a set of number input fields such as: Go to page [] thread [] message [__]
Of course, these numbers should be shown on the pages, next to the threads and messages.

LiquidThreads has been replaced by StructuredDiscussions on all Wikimedia production wikis (except one, which will be done soon). It is no longer under active development or maintenance, so I'm re-classifying all open LQT tasks as "Lowest" priority.
