Adventure Log: "Latest Session" sticky?

UselessTriviaMan

Currently, after I finish typing up and posting each adventure log entry, I go in and manually update the navigation links for every adventure log page. While I don't really mind doing so right now, at some point it's eventually going to get too cumbersome.

I want to simplify this, and I'm sure someone has already figured out how to solve this minor dilemma. Any suggestions?

I was thinking of possibly creating a wiki page called Latest Adventure Log, and simply updating that each session, but I'd want to change the Adventure Log navigation link in the left column. I have no clue how to do that.

Thanks!

    Ahh, gotcha... not really - I just make the built in one on the right ... fancier... although a "first" / "last" link would be pretty slick, admitedly.

    On my campaign, I just eliminated the multiple box format and did a single "lists all logs" entry. Then the individual pages use a basic previous/next set up at the bottom and/or the right side column to move around. Being able to go back to the general listing at any time and choose any log lessens the need for links to move around per log.

    All the best,
