    I've set up at photoblog using WordPress and the plugin Yet another photoblog, but I am having a lot of difficulty trying to get my photos to be used as previous links also.

    On most photoblogs, it is possible to navigate to previous entries by clicking on the photo itself. Unfortunately, this isn't quite easy to accomplish with WordPress and this plugin. I have searched around, both at Google and the support forum, and I am not the only one struggling with it.
    Not many seems to be getting answers on this topic.

    It would have been great if this was implemented into the plugin, since it is something very essensial in a photoblog. An even better thing would be if a small javascript could make the left side of the image point to the previous entry, and the right side to the next.

    WordPress' template system doesn't have a good support for getting a url to the previous entry. You just get a link, without the option of placing content inside it.

    I am really hoping someone, most likely the plugin author, would make this a feature in the plugin.

    If I cannot get this working, I can't use WordPress for photoblogging, which is a shame. It is a really good tool for blogging.

    The plugin is great on mostly everything, but this feature would make it complete.

    Hello.

    Here's the answer you are looking for!

    You have to adapt your theme to support previous/next (as well as other features)

    Scroll to "Thumbnail navigation (previous and next image)"
