I’m creating a new theme for my site that I’d ultimately like to be able to share.
I can change the labels for “Previous Pages | Next Pages” well enough, but then I’ve got something like “Newer >> | << Older” when what I really want is “<< Older | Newer >>”
It appears as though WP is placing the “newer-in-time” link before the “older-in-time” link.
Just for kicks, I removed my custom labels, and the default labels are in fact backwards; that is, WP assigns “Next Page >>” to posts that occurred earlier in time and “<< Previous Page” to posts that occurred later in time.
I haven’t touched the links-template.php file (and I don’t want to), but I’m not sure what my next steps should be. I’d appreciate any helpful advice. Thanks!
