I’ve seen this talked about before, a while back, but cannot find the thread. Is it me or do more people find the default arrangement of the “next entry” and “previous entry” backward?
I saw the argument used that the logic is based on a browser’s back and forward buttons. If that were the case then the default arrangement would be switched.
When one opens a browser and the home page loads, the forward and back buttons are grayed out. When you click a link within the page that leads you elsewhere, the left (forward) button becomes active. This button is there to get you back to the future, the point you originally started at. The page you are on at the moment is the past. The same should go for a blog. When you arrive at a blog’s index page, read to the bottom and encounter the “previous entries, it’s seems logical to have the chevron (
») pointing to the right instead the left.
Any other opinions?
