  1. Hi Min-Min. Thanks for your tremendous work

    When randomly clicking on a 汉子 on the 主页, then it is not possible to 直接 go to “older page” or “next page”, we always have to go back to the 主页 and choose a different 汉子 to study. Is it possible for you to add up this function?

    谢谢你, it would help flow the learning.
    Best Regards

    1. Hi Eric Haziza,
      I have redesigned my site and added the “previous post” and “next post” feature.
      I hope this will ease the navigation.
