<script type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.4.4/jquery.min.js"></script>

Now, you need to click on Layout from the sidebar and then select Add a Gadget. From the list of gadgets search for HTML/JavaScript and select it. Now you need to paste the following code in the HTML Text box.

<style type="text/css">
#blog-pager-newer-link {font-size:85%;width:200px;text-align:left;}
#blog-pager-older-link {font-size:85%;width:200px;text-align:right;}
</style>

<script type="text/javascript">
$(document).ready(function(){
var newerLink = $("a.blog-pager-newer-link").attr("href");
$("a.blog-pager-newer-link").load(newerLink+" .post-title:first", function() {
var newerLinkTitle = $("a.blog-pager-newer-link").text();
$("a.blog-pager-newer-link").text("<< " + newerLinkTitle);
});
var olderLink = $("a.blog-pager-older-link").attr("href");
$("a.blog-pager-older-link").load(olderLink+" .post-title:first", function() {
var olderLinkTitle = $("a.blog-pager-older-link").text();
$("a.blog-pager-older-link").text(olderLinkTitle + " >>");//rgt
});
});
</script>

I removed my Older/Newer/Home buttons before I did my research and now I can't get them back. I've been trying to find a way to either get them back or get a substitute navigational option and I'm not sure what to expect here. I don't want to do the same mistake, but I'm getting a little desperate. Can you tell me
a) what to expect, what it will look like
b) if I can remove it after adding it and
c) if I can add it even though I don't have Older/Newer buttons (tell me if, in the code, it removes the buttons and won't work if they're already removed)
d) if I'm making any sense?

I'm too young to understand all the technological terms so please keep it simple! Thank you!
