From the threads page, you are aware that clicking the thread name takes you to the first post, but clicking the last post link takes you to the last?
Russ, when a thread consists of multiple pages, say 5 pages for example, a window will appear at the top and bottom of each page that allows you to go directly to a particular page. If you're on page 1, this will let you go directly to page 2, 3, 4 or 5 from the current page by changing the page number in the little navigation window.
When a moderator closes a thread, this in effect allows the existing pages and posts to still be viewed, but new posts can no longer be made, if I understand the 'thread closed' function correctly.
However, it appears that when a thread is closed the little page navigation window vanishes. Is this intentional or a minor bug?
You can verify this by looking at some of the closed threads in the new "Forum Issues" forum.
