I've seen some places have four links set up there: << < > >>
The double >> will move you forward one thread, and the single > will move you forward one page.
Yuck. << should be back to page 1, < back one page, > next page and >> end of thread.
Jumping to the next thread should take up two lines on the right-hand side.
Prev. Thread "<read in title>"
Next Thread "<read in title>"
So the bottom should look something like this:
Pages: 1 2  4 5 Return to Top Prev. Thread: "Ike's posts make my teeth hurt"
<< < > >> Return to "Off Topic" List Next Thread: "Poll: Which mental illness most afflicts CeeKay?"
I just don't know how flexible the SMF software is.
