Hi everybody,

On orchard, when your on the detail view of a post, is it possible to add some "next post" and "previous post" just as you can in a wordpress blog or blogengine.

I think this should be a new Part, which would add those links to a currently displayed content item, based on the Content Type and Created property. Right now there is no such part in any module as I know.

Interesting idea for a module. I think I'll create that.  :-)

Okay, I've implemented it. I haven't published it to the gallery yet, but here's the code if you want to grab it and try it out: https://bitbucket.org/nimblepros/orchard-nextprevious-module/src.

I'd be curious to hear what you think.

Sebastien, do you think the committee would be interested in having this contributed to core, or better off just distributed on the gallery.

I had some time to spare and it was pretty easy. :-)

I went ahead and posted it to the gallery. It's called Contrib.NextPrevious. Hope this is helpful.
