@tangerineinds pointed me in the direction of a few great articles on FarCry development; felt compelled to share
Note, on a slightly related note you might try
application.fapi.getLink(); http://docs.farcrycore.org/farcrycore/p700/libraries/fapi.html#getLink to grab friendly urls.
Argh.. it's true. Styling the pagination scroll shouldn't be so hard
Love this one @tangerineinds... Any chance we can re-publish this one onto the howto channel; http://discourse.farcrycore.org/c/howto ?
