Post Navigation Arrows

  • ljfent


    My site is designed with mutiple categories (posts) in the main menu.

    When I access any post, in any category, the navigation arrows seem to jump to various posts, almost randomly. They don’t follow the posts in any order, or even by category.

    Can you help me understand how this navigation is supposed to work, and if can be configured more effectively to list the posts in the order they appear in the category?

    Note: I do have the Q2W3 Post order plugin (max bond) installed, if that might be effecting it?

    By default, the posts are ordered in reverse chronological order (i.e. newest posts first). I do suspect the Q2W3 Post Order plugin is what’s causing the issue. Try to deactivate the plugin and see what happens.



    Is there a way to disable and/or replace the post-navigation arrows with a back/up arrow which will simply navigate back to the category root?

    I would like to keep the purple line (divider) and the category title/name.

    The easiest way is to hide it through Additional CSS:

    .singular .post-nav-top {
    	display: none;




    That does work, and it seems to remove the links and the purple dividing line as well.

    Is there a way to keep the line and add a back or up arrow as minimum navigation?

    That kind of modification will need to be done via custom programming in a child theme. With CSS, you’re restricted to only modifying the appearance, and not the function.




    I understand; actually, I configured the post elements options to display only the categories and disable the author, tags and count and using your CSS code (above) it will work fine.

    Thanks for you help!
