Navigation inverted? (PERVIOUS = Next / NEXT = Previous?!)

Go to solution Solved by Ziggy,

Recommended Posts

I'm really hoping somebody can offer me some help or advice?

The navigation links on my blog have *always* been inverted - i.e. Selecting Previous, takes you forward, and selecting Next takes you Backwards?!  It's been driving me insane for over two years - but only now am i actually getting complaints from people visiting the site.

The effect is present on *every* blog entry, here😭https://digitalape.co.uk/blog

Can anyone enlighten me as to what is going wrong and how I can fix this?

**HUGE** Thanks in advance 🙏

I can see where you are coming from here, the next and previous don't relate well to the date of posting, they make more sense if you start at the most recent blog and then read the "next" one, and then the next one going backwards through the archive.

You can hide the labels with this Custom CSS:

.BlogItem-pagination-link-label {
    display: none !important;

Hope that helps!

many thanks for this Ziggy - this sounds like a good workaround😀  But, I'm going to fess-up to my full extent of my ignorance here - can you tell me where I need to paste the above code snippet within the interface?  

apologies for being such a dufus - i'm very much **beginner** level when it comes to finding my way around Squarespace
