By a show of hands or better yet a show of comments, do you find the next post and previous post navigation in WordPress useful? It’s there by default and many blogs including this one keep it, but how often do you actually click to see the next or previous post?
Just to make sure we’re talking about the same thing here’s an image of what I’m talking about with the two links circled:
Speaking for myself I’ve certainly clicked them on posts before, but I realize I don’t do it all that often and lately I’ve been removing them from many of the themes I’ve designed.
Because post titles can become quite long the links themselves can become quite long, which looks a bit messy to me. That’s easily fixed, but the main question is how useful you find the links.
If you don’t mind I’d appreciate a few thoughts. Leave a comment below. Thanks.
