[issue] Behaviour of link_to_prev

In my footer form I have link_to_prev : Image : link_to_next. Because it is in my footer this appears on every page.

On the front page or on an article list page, I would expect there to be no links to prev or next, but there are. It seems to choose a random article not related by posting time. I can wrap it all in if_individual_article so the links don’t show, but then the image disappears as well. I can wrap link_to_prev and link_to_next in if_individual_article, of course, and leave the image. But it seems like a lot of wrapping.

If it is front page or article list, could the default behaviour of link_to_prev and link_to_next be made so they are invisible?

Wrapping is okay. I think link_to_prev should give a warning when used outside of its intended context, similar to many other article tags.

I’m considering this a bug, for the reason Ruud stated.
