Next / previous buttons

I have a huge number of pages that have a previous and next button on them, in order to let the visitor browse through them. Do I really have to adjust the link in every page for each button our is there an easier way ?

If they’re in the same position put the buttons on the master page select
next/previous as you need.

However I’ve found that every time you publish, these buttons cause a
republish of the page, if you have a lot of pages it could be a real pain.

Have a look at a simple construction file here:

You can download the Freeway Pro 5 construction file too.

There’s an action called Link To Page which can set up all the pages in a folder to have automatic next / previous links. If you can’t find it on ActionsForge, have a look on the old KnowledgeBase.

I wish I knew about that Action earlier! It’s a little late now, but I might want to use it in the future.

I searched Action Forge and Knowledge Base, but couldn’t find it.

Try here:

Link to Page is a Softpress Action in the old knowledgebase, not he
current one which is, as yet incomplete.

Great! Thanks.

I assume it will work in v5 Pro, latest version?

One thing to note about this Action – it will cause every page that
includes it to re-publish EVERY TIME you publish your document.
Depending on the file-size of these pages (movies on the page, maybe)
this could be a deal-breaker, and actually make it worthwhile to
simply code the links manually.

Good to know, Walt.

The pages I would have used them on had about eight images on them. Sort of a gallery-type page.

As long as your originals aren’t too weighty, I doubt you’ll notice it
then. If you had some massive uploads, like maybe movies or PDF files
linked with an Action, then you would start to feel the pain.
