I might be old school but right to go to the next post is normal for me, and left to go back Anyway -- works perfectly in standard blogs and when I had a problem in a Divi installation the author fixed it with a simple CSS code snippet (z axis issue) - anybody not seeing the arrows this is probably the reason. Top marks for simplicity and service.

This plugin follows the old and outdated wordpress native navigation (click left to scroll through all the posts). From a user stand-point, a user should be clicking RIGHT to advance through all (previous) posts (like Instagram or Facebook stories). I contacted the plugin author and they said "nobody else complained". Well, I wasn't complaining, I was simply asking if there was a way to accomplish this within this plugin. There are other plugins that accomplish this, so I'll use one of those. If the arrows navigated Right: Previous, Left: Next, it would be a 5 star plugin!
