Next/previous navigation points to wrong articles/posts

    I think there’s a bug in Bravada’s display of next/previous article/post buttons because they point to fixed, but arbitrary articles or no next article even if there is one.

    I’ll give some examples with expexted and actual behaviour.
    I open any random article/blog post and scroll to the end of the page where the navigation through the articles is placed. The section with pages (1, 2, 3, …, N) is fine. But the navigation buttons to next or previous articles seems corrupted:

    “n” refers to the latest article but could be any number.
    1) open article n
    – [previous] expected: n-1, actually: n-10
    – [next] expected: <empy>, actually <empty> <– good!
    2) open article n-1
    – [previous] expected: n-2, actually: n-4
    – [next] expected: n, actually: <empty>
    3) open article n-3
    – [previous] expected: n-4, actually: n-5
    – [next] expected: n-2, actually: n-2 <– good!
    4) open article n-6
    – [previous] expected: n-7, actually: n-33
    – [next] expected: n-5, actually: n-4

    … and so on. The behaviour is not influenced by refreshing the page or clearing the cache, so at least it’s not completely random. I have not changed anything in the theme other that adjusting colours etc. but no coding or similar.

    WP version 6.0.3
    Bravada Theme v1.0.7.1

    I noticed this too.

    I am using the the Plus version of Bravada, and it started happening a few months ago after I changed my screen name. Before the name change, everything was working as it should.

    I can’t recall now if this was around the same time that an update for Bravada was released or not.

    I have been tempted to try changing my screen name back to see if it would make a difference, but wasn’t sure if that would cause even further issues. So I thought I’d best let things be.

    Glad to know I am not the only one who has noticed this. I will try and play around on my test site with settings and see if I can figure anything out.

    The previous/next posts navigation has always linked to the chronologically (based on publish date) ordered posts relative to the currently viewed one. This never took other attributes (category/tags) into consideration.

    In Bravada we’ve adjusted this functionality slightly to limit the previous/next post links from the same (main) category (if it exists) as the post being viewed.
