I'm not sure why it is that way but there is a work around. If you look at the URL when you are browsing it says something like this
https://www.instructables.com/tag/type-id/category-living/?&offset=20

This is page one when you browse living, there are 20 instuctables per page so if you want to go to page 3 you can change the offset to 40. Or 200 for page 11 etc.

But like Canuckgirl said, people keep adding new instrucatables so if you are looking for a specific one the page it is on will change.

No, you can't input a specific number, but you can click on the number buttons that are visible on a given page. For example, when you are on page 1, you will see that between the previous and next buttons are page number buttons 1, 2, 3, 4 plus the last 2 pages of the section.

I would imagine the reason you can't input a specific number is due to the fact that content changes regularly and what page 8 was today may not be the same tomorrow.

Does that make sense?
