Improve the Previous/Next Entry Navigation In Entry View

Improve the Previous/Next Entry Navigation In Entry View

Short, concise description of the idea
Have the previous/next entry buttons on an entry provide more information about the entries they will take you to and have them only take you to entries you can access.

Full description of the idea
Currently, the Previous/Next entry buttons seen on entry view in a journal provide very basic functionality: they take you to the appropriate entry, regardless of security setting for that entry. If you can't read the entry, you get an error message. On journals where there are a large number of friends-only or private entries, this is not useful to anyone other than the journal owner. The previous/next entry buttons should only navigate to the entries readable by the person viewing the journal. As a bonus, a hover context menu coudl be added indicating the title, date, and tags applied to the entry they will take you to.

An ordered list of benefits
  • No more annoying "hey, you can't read this messages" with no way to get around them.
  • Easily find entries you're looking for, with all comments displayed and no lj-cuts.

An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • May cause pages to load slower for browsers that don't properly support the hover context menus.
  • Increased use of processor time to verify which entries can be read by the person browsing the journal.

An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation
  • I think I covered that.
