Blog ~ .page-link numbers after Class Sharedaddy–BAD, 04/18

I have asked WordPress.com support for resolution using their forums.

This issue at the WordPress.com Forums

2016-04-19_3-18-57 Page numbers exampleI have read several threads where bloggers ask if page links [after Related Post/Sharedaddy in my blog] can be moved to a more findable position for readers.

The basic answer is NO!

There must be a better way. Using Custom CSS and the code below, I have positioned the page links where I want them for this post.

.page-links {position: relative; top: -413px;} /*adj. after removing space */

This works on each page, once the post is open. The exact same position each time.

The problem is the relative positioning puts the page-links in a wrong position until the article is opened. This is not something a professional blogger wants.

WordPress.com positions the number links at a different position until the post is opened. That is at the end of the article. I thought the positioning would be the same for each page; but, that is not the case. That is not good!

It seems that if I can find a way [using CSS] to get the positioning I want on all but closed articles/post, that WordPress.com staff could resolve this problem for its bloggers and readers. I hope…

Can page IDs be used for each page of a post? If so, I can use a different vertical position for a post that has not been opened. Just a thought…

I have used direct wording and the color red that I hope will allow my readers for find page links. I think I am asking too much. My impression is not a lot of viewers read much of the text in articles.

Use the Page Number Selector below and after Related [further below: after the article is open] to go…

I have tried to be clear with my statement of the problem and possible directions toward a solution. We are looking for Happy Bloggers and readers, as well.

Thanks!
