Hello, I'm scanning through all the Sci-Fi movies on your site by year starting in 1940 to present, this is going some time so is there any way you could add a page number bar at the bottom so we dont have to start over & click forward till I get to where I stopped. Or maybe you could jump 10 pages at a time... anyway be nice to have a page reference of some type at the top or bottom so when we come back we could start where we left off... thank you so much !

I don't know how you are conducting the search, but often there will be a part of the URL called start= that you can edit manually to jump to a particular place in the search results.

Yep I hack the URL but you could have it where you have the current page number as a little form box, so you can just change the page number in there and hit return. It is only a little tweak but people would find it handy - I'm fine with hacking the URL but I know quite a few people might look at you as if you've got a second head when you suggest it (people just don't even consider the URL as a thing they can manipulate - I've taught computer skills for beginners and you'd be surprised by what people miss).

Using IE 9 I was just " create shortcut " but as you said a # bar would be handy...

Hello...Im just doing a lengthy search or scan on sci-fy movies by year, I started in 1940 which gives you over 6000 titles, each page has 50 titles & on the bottom you will see a forward & back arrows... many sites also have a page number bar here next to the arrows that may have say 10 to 20 page numbers for easy access & also showing the current page your on so you can easily find the page should you leave then come back at a later time... thank you for your replies !
