How to do Prev | Next on a website.
Posted on 2004-12-01
I am still relatively new to website development. I am using Dreamweaver MX and the site is hosted on a Unix platform.
There is a feature I would like to implement. Often I read forums and I like the prev | next functionality. I often read about 50 entries before getting tired and I find some of the postings very interesting.
I want to give my readers a way to see all I am doing on a day-by-day basis to highlight all of my expertise.
For non-web apps, I know I would never 'hard code' such info.
I don't want to code an entire 'forum' as that's probably over my head, but I would like to know how to code unlimited prev | next functionality. Each page would correspond to an 'interesting day' I had.
Put the stuff in a native O/S text file? a database entry? I looked at the source code for TechRepublic forum but I don't believe I'm seeing the server-side code.
Any help would be appreciated.
