Navigation arrows by project type

  • Hi:

    The default setting for the navigation arrows found at the bottom of each project appears to be chronological. I would prefer for the arrows to direct the viewer to other projects in the same project type. Is that an option?

    The blog I need help with is: (visible only to logged in users)

  • Hey there 👋

    As it happens, that’s not something than can be tweaked. And as easy as it may sound, it’s actually super-tricky (on the code side) to navigate between projects like you mention.

    If you’d like, I can help you hide the default arrows from your projects. Then, using text, you could manually add ‘Next’ and ‘Previous’ links to each of your project with links of your own choice.

    I know that’s hardly ideal, but let me know if that interest you! Happy to help 😀

  • Thanks, Scott. The work-around you described sounds like a good solution. Can you help me hide the default arrows?

    Also – is there any flexibility with the way the menu is displayed?

  • Sounds good! To hide those arrows, be sure to follow this guide on adding the following code snippet to your site.

    .single-jetpack-portfolio .nav-links {
    	display: none;

    What did you have in mind for the menu? It’s not very flexible, but I’m happy to at least hear what you’re hoping to do and see how we can help 😀

  • Re. the menu display, I was wondering if it would be possible to “turn off” the feature which hides the menu sidebar, i.e., to keep the menu sidebar displayed at all times.

    Thanks for the help!

  • Ah! As it happens that’s not something we can control with the menu.

    Sorry that’s not what you’re hoping to hear!
