searching through categories and if I leave and want to return, there's no box to enter the page # I want to return to.

i have to go through them all ( or jump a few ahead) or all the way to the last page. No in between.


etsy, why oh why do you keep fixing what isn't broke.

This is so frustrating.

I by something on page 11, want to continue browsing to maybe buy more and have to waste time going back through pages of things I've already seen.

Good thing I didn't buy off page 350

when there are thousands of pages in a category, how can you not have a jump to box?

Agreed. It needs to come back. In the meantime, though, I just change the number in the url to take me to the page I want to go to. Less user-friendly, but it works.

perfect example. I try to search about 100 pages a day of glass beads. I need to do a different set each day, not the same ones over and over.

sooooooooooooooooooooooo frustrated right now.

thanks LaBeq. not sure why I didn't think of that. I should have. but then again, I bet others don't either.

user friendly is the name of the game for sales.

I possibly hate the removal of that page box more than any of the other multitude of updates they've made recently.

Why, for the love of God, WHY????

I've found stuff to buy on page 350 of a category. Obviously, I won't ever again.

This isn't something designed to help shoppers find items they want to buy. I wonder why this change was made....such a mystery ;-)
