I was chatting with Norm Walsh this morning, and he pointed me at the navigation toolbar he uses for reading specifications. It’s one of those small things that makes the web world more functional. I often miss a couple of days of posts from some blogger on my not-quite-every-day list and this makes starting on one day and working backwards till I’ve caught up much easier. Well, at least for those blogs that implement the rel="prev" and next attributes on the <link> elements in the header.

Of course, after installing the Firefox toolbar, I discovered that the list of blogs that implements these useful links didn’t include mine. It isn’t an integral part of WordPress installations, but since there’s a plugin to do most things anyone ever wants to do, the quick solution (as opposed to programming it myself when I have time) lay just a few searches away. The META Relationship Links plugin does just what I needed.

  1. I’ve been using the Link Widgets extension for Firefox, which works much like the navigation toolbar except you can pick and choose the buttons and place them on any other toolbar. Depends on your preference; I like having more screen space for open tabs, so I tend to keep only one highly-customized toolbar open.

  2. Thanks — this is immensely useful!
