When reading forum articles, there's no Previous/Next link on the article view page.

So, after reading an article (or posting an article / commenting on an article) I always have to go back to the listing view page and then click on the next article.

It will be much easier and more efficient if we have previous/next link when reading articles, so that we can just keep reading on without un-necessary delay.

Yes, the Previous/Next link can be helpful to navigate better in the forum. Also I don't see the same on other parts (for example workspace, etc).

This would be extremely helpful to have, and is a fairly standard component of most any forum/BB system.

Thanks,

 This is a good idea.  We've talked about adding this internally.  I'll make sure it stays on our radar.

in the 'Tell Us What you Think" Article/Blog/Post that I can't seem to find anymore!!

It's an almost essential requirement in navigating forums etc as using [<BACK]  & scrolling around just to get to the next un-read is a right, royal pain in the ... ;)

Connect has been online for over seven months and this thread is over four months old.  WHY has this relatively simple functionality, included in almost every forum on the Internet, not been added to Connect yet?  Seriously.

We now have the pagination at the Forum level so what are our chances of getting the previous/next tabs within the actual post implemented?

e.g.

Obviously, this previous/next will have to be true to the Forum layout (e.g. recent replies, recent posts etc etc)

Happy belated third birthday to this idea!

The lack of this functionality has been a regression since switching from the STN to Connect.  Given some of the bells and whistles coded in the three years since, it is inexcusable that the total absence of forum navigation between threads on Connect has not been addressed - and resolved.
