Recently I played my first page of Railways of the World. After the first game I wanted to go through the rules in detail, so I could be 100% sure we were playing the game correctly. I went the the forums section of the game page and clicked on 'rules.' there are 8 pages of rules. I wanted to read each of the posts there.

What I did:
1) started at page 8 (wanted to read them in chronolgical order) read one post, hit the back button the browswer, hit the rules link again, went to the right page, clicked the next post in the list, etc...

What I would like to be able to do:
1) after reading a post, I'd like to see a forward and backward link that would take me to the previous or next link within the sub-forum (in my case the 'rules' section)

Another alternative would be to have an option to expand the rules forum so that all posts are shown on one page. This would allow me to display 1 rather than 8 pages and I could use the back button on the brower to get ot the next post....without having to get to the right page first.

Let me know if this post isn't clear. Thanks.

Re: Suggestion for more easily review multi-page 'forum'
What you want to do is hit 'browse' up on the top left of the forum section on the games main page. That takes you to a more traditional looking forum section that will give you much closer to the functionality you're looking for.

Edit: the UI here is a bit awkward, bloated, and unintuitive at times. They promise they're fixing some of these issues with the redo. I like it the way it is, but it did take a while to figure out how to do things.

Another option is to open the all the links from one page in new tabs, go to the next page, and repeat.

Thanks! I had obviously not used the 'browse' function and this lets me do what I was trying to do. It'll be much quicker to read through these rules posts.

Thanks Again....

and happy gaming!
