Personally, I NEVER use the numbers that are between the first and last numbers - whether I'm on a phpbb site or not. I think most people use the First, Last, Next and Previous buttons.

On another note, I think the size of the buttons needs to be increased a bit to accommodate mobile users.

I used. When the topic is more than 100 pages, this field is useful.

But why? If a topic is 154 pages long, why would you want to jump to page 139? Unless you are certain that the post you want is there.

I do not always can remember the exact text, sufficient for searching, but approximately remember what page it was. Open page 130, and recollect the context of more accurate page number, and open it.

Yeah, I also use those page buttons. Sometimes if I have a rough idea of where a post is, so I click the page number and go forward (or backward) from there.

So I think that your question has been answered -- some people "seriously" use them.

The question is, are "some users" enough to keep that?

No, the question is "Should we make a change that breaks how some users work?" (especially for very little perceived gain).

If you want to hide the information on a small screen or make it a drop-down list, I'm fine with that.

We can totally keep it. It just needs a little face lift

+1.

I think allot of moderators or administrators will use that to go faster from one place to another.
