The "next" and "previous" Buttons
« on: February 26, 2011, 08:01:50 PM »
How exactly do the next and previous buttons at the top and bottom of a page work? Sometimes they lead to a new topic, and other times they lead to a second page of the same topic. Because of this, I can never really find the newest post. :(

The previous and next buttons are meant to go to the next topics, I guess with the exception that a thread has multiple pages at which it will go to the next page.

I never use them, and I never miss posts.  Then again, I am a Luddite when it comes to navigation.

I use the recent post section... As long as I'm not out for more than a week I really won't miss anything.
