Friday Facts pages: navigation between pages

Post by speedaaah » Tue Jan 02, 2018 3:05 pm

TL;DR
I would like to have some buttons/links on top of each fff-page, for going to the previous and the next page, in order to go through the fffs more easily while reading them.
What ?
This is how a Factorio Friday Facts page looks now:
fff-page-as-is.PNG
fff-page-as-is.PNG (318.88 KiB) Viewed 446 times
There is already a link to the all posts page, in order to get to the next or previous page, you can
  • edit the url, or
  • go back to the start page or to the fff overview page via links and open another, or
  • open multiple pages at once from there and go through them.
What I would like to have are 2 additional links or buttons or sth. like that to navigate to the surrounding pages as can be seen here:
fff-page-with-links.PNG
fff-page-with-links.PNG (314.18 KiB) Viewed 446 times
or here:
fff-page-with-buttons.PNG
fff-page-with-buttons.PNG (335.76 KiB) Viewed 446 times
Why ?
I think it would make it easier to go through the fffs while reading them as it reduces the effort to change the page letting the reader focus on reading :)
This wouldn't improve the game itself but the factorio experience as whole.

Thanks for reading and happy new Year :)

Yeah, that's right, I do it this way myself, but I think it doesn't hurt to suggest a (hopefully) better way :)

One problem is that the blog contains some entries that are not Factorio Friday Facts. Should the forward/back buttons only jump between FFFs or also other blog entries?

I'm going to say that either would work, but maybe yes. The last time something like that was posted was nearly 2 years ago, and the last one before that was 3 1/2.

A 'Next' Button in the FFFs.

I love the FFF. But as a rule, I binge read things like this infrequently, rather than stay up to date every week, and manually changing the URL for the next one each time is annoying, especially considering typos.

I believe this would not be a difficult change.

This has already been suggested and discussed in the following thread:

EDIT: Meanwhile, the threads have been merged. Therefore, my above link now points to the current thread.

I'd appreciate a previous and next button.
