[OJS] Pagination footer and/or filter/search header for Archives page

Describe the problem you would like to solve
We have a journal, which has a lot of archived issues (137 issues, and that will grow, when we upload the whole archive back to 1935!). On the Archives page these are sliced into several pages with a “Next” and “Previous” link. For a user there is no opportunity to jump to a specific page, e.g. page 3, or search/filter, e.g. for all issues of a specific year.

Describe the solution you’d like
It would improve the usability of the Archives page, if there would be …

  1. … a footer, where the user can jump to a specific “page” (see example of pagination footer below), or a specific range of results (e.g. “1-25 26-50 51-100 101-137”).
  2. … a filter or search header at the top of the page, where the user can filter the Archives page. Something similar to the CrossRef XML Export Plugin’s “Search” on the top of the Articles section (see screenshot below).

Who is asking for this feature?
The journal editors, and authors asked for this.
