"Previous" and "next" navigation elements on single pages in The Columnist

    On single post pages in The Columnist, I’d like to get the two navigational elements, “next post” and “previous post” — or rather, the titles of the posts — flush with their respective edges of the content field, but haven’t had any success in doing so. Is there some easy way to do this?

    The blog I need help with is musicuratum.com.


    I think this will do what you ask.

    #content #nav-below {
    width: 900px;
    #content .nav-previous {
    margin-left: 0;


    Thank you, that worked perfectly.



    Sorry, I should have checked the “feed-wrap” page, which I’d managed to set up correctly — the new code affects it too. What I’m looking for is two sets of code, one for each type of page.


    Then create a specific rule to fix the “feed-wrap” page and target it by page ID body class or page type, if you can do it that way.

    You also need to rethink your menu system as I can’t even see the full list of articles at Texts > Longer Writings in PDF format – which is a very bad thing for your visitors. The sub sub menu flows down and below the bottom edge of my browser window so I can’t get to some of the entries. I know I can scroll down when my mouse is on the sub sub menu, but few visitors are likely to know that.



    You don’t need additional CSS to “fix” the nav links on dynamic pages. You can make TSP’s suggestions work on the single post view only, by turning the above selectors to:

    .single #content #nav-below

    .single #content .nav-previous



    About the navigations menus, I’m just testing out this sort of a system — the lists which I’ve now included there I also have had, for quite some time, located on pages dedicated to them; and perhaps I’ll just link to those pages via the navigation menus. I’m still thinking about it.

    That coding seems to have done the trick, thank you.
