Change the buttons for leaving through the pages of threads.


Good morning Jeremy. Please bear with me.

Long threads with many posts are arranged in pages of 15 posts each LQ and the posts and the pages themselves come in chronological order. To navigate between them there is a small bar at the bottom of the pages with page numbers and "<", ">", "first" and "last".

Problem: all buttons are of the same size (at least height). I personally think is not really ergonomic. So I'd like to suggest first to increase the size of all buttons. Even better would be setting off the "<" and ">" symbols definitely larger than the numbers in the middle and "first" and "last" in the outermost positions largest. That would really help navigating. (A bit like google search, where in the results the last few letters Goo"gle" offer a big target to switch to the next page of search results).

Thank you for your efforts either way if you implement this or not .

A suggestion, have you tried CTRL + to increase the size of everything in your browser?

Yes, I have (I use mostly CTRL and the scrolling wheel of the mouse - faster and easier to correct in case of overcompensation).

I still maintain that my suggestion would improve manageability of the site. Honestly, how long do you want to maneuver your mouse until you are reasonably sure to hit the right button? My point is, that these buttons are too small in relation to the rest of the page.

Thanks for the feedback. Keep in mind that the nav for multi-page threads will change when we update LQ to the new codebase. http://www.chromeosquestions.org/thr...SQuestions-org is an example.
