I just can't believe this question has never been asked.
Even google does not know what I'm talking about, yet it's so normal a thing to have. Honestly I've tried *everything*, the entire evening. Nada, Nothin.
All i want is a contextual back button.
A bit like a breadcrumb, but not.
Like i was on page x, i clicked on a link, whatever that may have been, and it says on the new page, go back to 'x'
Every WordPress breadcrumb plugin sux, because none of them regard the fact that some posts have multiple categories. So it just takes the lowest id numbered category as the pervious path (?!?!?) which is just complete BS.
Please tell me something like this is possible?!
There must be a way to catch the previous page and reference it in the next page.
Put it this way, somehow 'previous_post_link' and 'next_post_link' has contextual awareness, so surely there's a way to do this?
I'm just amazed that this problem hasn't been a bigger issue. Breadcrumbs go through category paths, and people do use multiple categories for non-blog style sites (ie creative portfolios).
