Arrow Shorten page number bar?

Hey all.

In the `General Computer Hardware And Software` forum the page number bar is very long and expands the page a great deal.

Could this be fixed as it is somewhat annoying. I know it can be done. It would be good it it only showed the first 10 pages. The only way that I can do it is by shortening the but off period.

Could this be fixed then, David?

Thanks,
Jamie.

Surely, if he shortens the pages, threads will be lost, and post count will be lost.

No, the pages don't get deleted....

I mean something like this:



Thats it done on a newer version of vBulletin. And that raises another point, why are the forums running on such an older version?

Lol, true

But there is no reason why he shouldn't upgrade, its free if he brought the original version.. Unless he is using a pirate copy
