    The option to advance to the next page or go to "Page 2 of 3" were at the bottom of the current page as well as the top. As it currently stands I read all the posts to the bottom of the page and must go back to the top to get to the next page. It would be nice to be able to go to the next page from the bottom where I am at. Hope that makes sense.

    We have that. Maybe it's your browser. OK admittedly you can't input a page number, but there are several options.

      Yes! That worked. Not sure how I got there though. I always log on through the amazingribs.com pit login and don't get it there.

    What I'd like to see is when you click on a link from an email, that it take you to that comment so you can reply. As it is now when you click a link in an email it takes you to page 1 that's it. If you access your messages in The Pit, and click the link, it takes you that comment (not just page 1) so the ability is there.

        What I'd like to see is I click a button and flying monkeys, like the Wizard of Oz ones, would come out of my speakers and cruze out and check my cooks. Then report back so I could keep on surfin the Pit.

        (sorry I have no idea where that came from, 1000 pardons)

          I see the buttons at the bottom of each page once you're in the thread, but I'd like to see the same buttons at the bottom of a thread list like the "Today's Posts" list. that still requires scrolling back to the top to go to the next page.

            Bruce I could see that being nice, but I don't think it'd be used that often. I also think this would take code to do, which brings its own complications.

              As I posted below, I would use the living heck out of that. Yes, it would take code. I wrote the code for that very thing on the Jos A Bank website; it involved copying and pasting the code from the top of the page to the bottom.

            I get the bottom page navigation links on some pages but not others. Before reading this thread, I was in fact just thinking that it would be nice if they were added to the "today's posts" pages.

                  Folks this is actually addressed in 5.1.3 of vBulletin, which we're working very hard on to implement. Here's the developer note:

                  In addition to the pagination in the floating filter bar, many pages throughout the system have had page navigation added at the bottom of the page. This navigation is in line with the page number based navigation that customers have been asking for.

                These are products we have tested, won our top awards, and are highly recommend. Click here to read how we test, about our medals, and what they mean.

                Use Our Links To Help Keep Us Alive

                A big part of this site is our unbiased equipment and product reviews. We love playing with toys and we have no problem calling them the way we see them. Some companies pay a finder's fee if a reader clicks a link on AmazingRibs.com and buys a product. It has zero impact on our reviews, zero impact on the price you pay, and the sites never tell us what you bought, but it has a major impact on our ability to keep this site alive! So before you buy, please click our links. Here's a link that takes you to a page on Amazon that has some of our favorite tools and toys:

                If you have a Weber Kettle, you need the Slow 'N' Sear

                slow n sear
                The Slow 'N' Sear turns your grill into a first class smoker and also creates an extremely hot sear zone you can use to create steakhouse steaks.

                The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

                the good one grill
                The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

                Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

                Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
                The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all!

                The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

                Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
                The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

                The Undisputed Champion!

                The Thermoworks Thermapen MK4 is considered by the pros, and our team, to be the single best instant read thermometer. The MK4 includes features that are common on high-end instruments: automatic backlight and rotating display. Don't accept cheap substitutes.

                Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

                Grilla pellet smoker
                We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5" x 29.5" footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.

                Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?

                PK 360 grill
                The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it's easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.

                kareubequ bbq smoker

                The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

                This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp's dial from 175? to 350?F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin'.

                The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

                NK-22-Ck Grill
                Napoleon's NK22CK-C Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It's hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the NK22CK-C a viable alternative.
