Hi All,

I congratulate the java ranch team for all the good effort being put into the new look.
And, I just had a small thought which I wanted to communicate. Wouldnt it be be nice to add Previous, Next buttons in the Topic page.
So, we can open the first/recent topic in a forum and just keeping reading all the topics in that forum by going to older topics using the previous button.

Thanks.

You cannot reliably go to the next post because the order of posts can change while you are reading.
We have discussed this before, e.g. here and here. They don’t tell you a lot, however.
