First and Last Links

Do you think it is too redundant to have first and last <link> tags for a piece of content that is only one page long?  Or is it good to keep consistency?

Re: First and Last Links

If you manually added them, definitely redundancy, but if they're just in there generated by some kind of CMS, then no big deal.

Re: First and Last Links

Well, since I'm building this some kind of CMS, I just wanted some opinions. smile

Thanks though.  I seem to have it working just right now.

Re: First and Last Links

Both redudant and confusing in my opinion, but a lot of sites do it so most users are familiar with it. What I usually do is have both present as regular text (not as links) to maintain consistency and make visiters aware of these options should they visit another page that does have multiple pages.

Make it an option the users can select. If they want to show them do as alecto suggested, and if they don't want to show them, just don't include them in the template.

Re: First and Last Links

Ummm ... most websites do not use the <link> tags to denote related pages and their relation.  Perhaps actual links (<a>), but this is not what I am talking about.
