[SOLVED] First/oldest post link?

To make it easier for new readers to start at the bottom, I would like to have a link to the first post. Preferred places would be at the bottom of the center column next to "older entries" or under the monthly archives list in the sidebar.

Is there an easy way to do this? Perhaps by modifying the code in the "Home link" option?

TIA-

Ctenos

You can put a jump to top link like this

<p><small><a href="#wrapper">[top]</a></small></p>

i.e. into the post footer at Post Page Info Items

or i.e. Style & edit CENTER COLUMN -> Content BELOW the LOOP

Thanks very much, Flynn. What I'd like to do is not jump to "top" - as you kindly showed how to do - but to jump to the first post. Ideally, this would be a new button or text-link placed under "archives" in the side-bar or between the "newer entries" and "older entries" links below all posts: not, that is, under each entry. (That's what your string did when I added it, though I might have put it int he wrong place.)

I've seen this feature on several blogs, and would like to add it to my Atahualpa setup if possible.

Thanks-

You could try

<p><small><a href="#middle">[top]</a></small></p>

to have it jump to the top of the middle column which is basically where the first post starts

And, it should not be included in every post if you put this into Style & edit CENTER COLUMN -> Content BELOW the LOOP

Advice much appreciated. Wanted a slightly different effect. What I've done for the moment is to install the Text widget. With no title and the string

<a href="http://MYSITE.com/?p=6">LINKTITLE</a>

in the body, it does what I want.

Thanks again to you, and to
