Hello John

It is possible to allow people to browse your site by clicking on a "next" link or button on your page, instead of using the automatically generated menu. You can achieve this by using the Yola text and link editors to create this type of navigation for your site.

These are the steps:

1. Create the pages for your site.
2. Click on "Edit menu" (below the page tab) and drag all except your first (main) page "out of the menu".
3. At the bottom of each of your pages, drag and drop a text widget onto your page.
4. Add your link text or image. For example, you could have a link that says "next". You could also include a "first" and "last" link, linking to the first and last pages on your list.
5. Highlight your link text or image and click "insert link" on the text editing toolbar.
6. A dialog box will open up with all the link options. Click on "Page" and you will see a list the pages on your site. Select the one you want to link to.
7. To test that the link is working, save and preview your page.

Repeat this process for all your pages and your visitors will then be able to browse your pages in order by clicking on your "next" links, like flipping through the pages of a book.

We have an excellent tutorial which will step you through the process of creating sub-pages, here is a link: Creating Sub-Pages Tutorial.

or you can find or create a previous and next button image and put the link into the image, this might be a more preferred way depending on the look of your site.
