Add "Previous page" link to additional results pages at Special:PrefixIndex
Open, Needs TriagePublic


In Special:PrefixIndex results, if we go to the "Next page (...)", there is no link to the "Previous page (...)" at the top.

This causes these problems:

  • harder to navigate
  • inconsistent with Special:AllPages
  • sharing a link to results beyond the first page will be less useful


In contrast, Special:AllPages does have this useful function:

Obviously, we cannot have a Previous page (...) link on the first page of PrefixIndex results, because it is a limited listing. But we should have it on subsequent pages.

Like This example

The fisrt Page, then I click the 'Next Page'.

The second Page, I want to go back to the Food but where the 'Previous page'?
That is the problem.
