Hi, started using your blog engine and like it alot.
Anyway, one thing I am missing (or maybe cannot find) is a link to
navigate to older posts and back to newer ones again. For example I have
50 posts and only 10 are displayed. Currently the only way to go back in
history are the archive links. I would like a link at the bottom going to
the next posts so users get a hint.
What do you think?

Regards
Chris

Hi Chris,

many thanks for your feedback and please, excuse my late response.

You are absolutely right, this feature is currently missing. When I
was designing BlazeBlogger, I have decided to omit it for a simple
reason: it would produce a (potentially) large number of rather
redundant index pages with very limited usefulness, as people usually
browse one or two pages back, but browsing the whole content this way
is probably quite rare. At least, this is my personal point of view.

I am generally not against implementing it. In fact, the code is quite
ready and adding this feature would be trivial task. But before I
decide whether to add that or leave it as it is now, I would very much
like to know what people think about that. :-) Feel free to share your
opinion on this topic.

Yours sincerely,
Jaromir Hradilek

My opinion: Do it. On small blogs I often use the forward/back Links
to browse the whole blog, on bigger ones I often look back to the last
2 or 3 pages, so I'd find this feature very useful.

Thank you very much for your opinion. Well, since there is already two
of you (three if I count personal conversation) supporting the
request, I tried to implement it few minutes ago to see how it looks
and I must admit I like it very much -- It really feels natural and
comfortable.

At the moment, it's already in the latest development version
(available via Git).
