I'm working with a Comic blog (that also has a category for blog posts as well). Unfortunately, we were almost completely finished with the project before I found out about ComicPress - which doesn't help with this issue.
However, I'm trying to do a navigation that will not only show on the main page, but will show on any pages that reference posts in a particular category.
I want it to be: FIRST - PREVIOUS - ARCHIVES - NEXT - LAST
I can get the Previous and Next Links. But I can't figure out a programmatic way to tell WordPress to figure out what category I'm in (for example, on the index page, it only shows the Comic category within the loop) so that it goes to the right category archives, but to automatically figure out what the link is to the very first post in that category, as well as the most recent post in that category.
And I want them to show up all the time - even if there is no "next" comic or post. (well, *I* don't want them to, but the comic artist does).
Can anyone help here?
