Agreed... Then a little larger buttons to make it easier to use on mobile (and whatever other improvements the team/community could come-up with).

Perhaps change it to a button with a "jump" icon (whatever that may be). "page 4 of 4" is just redundant since you can easily see this from the pagination itself.

Personally, I like this style better. The buttons don't look as "cartoony" as the ones posted on page 3 (by hanakin I believe).

EDIT: Attachments still don't carry over? Referenced post: https://area51.phpbb.com/phpBB/viewtopi ... 27#p264427

I meant something significantly smaller.

Something like:

In any case, the "jump to page" dialog should be changed. Here's an idea from IPB:
