Re: Archives and fast forward buttons

I was hoping some one may know how to create a "fast forward" button which
will "jump" to a particular page.

You could do it with a CGI program.  You can create a link on index
pages that calls a CGI program.  Arguments to CGI program may include
current page number, archive location, jump count, index type (or
filename prefix), direction, etc.  When invoked, the CGI program
checks the current page number, and since the index files names
are consistent, one can compute the proper URL to redirect the WWW
client to.  Make sure to check for boundary conditions and to not
"overjump" passed the last page (or first page).

If you get something working, post it to this list as other may
find it useful.
