[resolved] [Solved] "prev" and "next" on article edit page behave inconsistently

Today I stumbled upon an inconsistent behavior of the “previous” and “next” buttons on the article edit page:

The articles in “content” -> “articles” are sorted by date by default, right? When editing an article I would expect that the “previous” or “next” button also operates by date, consequently. But this is not the case, unfortunately. Instead the function uses the article ID as criterion.

This behavior leads to great confusion, because article dates can change. Thereby articles IDs do not necessarily represent the same order as the actual dates of the articles.

If someone could address that problem I would very appreciate it.

Cheers,

It’s based on date.
Is there any chance that two or more of your articles have the same time post?

That’s actually true. Problem fixed.

Although I’m not convinced that having articles with the same date shoud cause the previous/back function to fall back to order by ID. Textpattern does not warn that doing so could result in such problems.

Big thanks for your quick, visionary reply!

Cheers,
