I love the clean look of the narrative theme. However, I found one issue for me, which is: navigating between products is quite cumbersome as there is no button to go back to the collection or to move to the next or previous product once on the product page. I would really like to create these buttons.
I have tried coding, but without much success. Has anyone seem the same need? How did you solve it?
Look forward to hearing from you!

No problem! I've found a couple resources that can help with that navigation. Had you considered breadcrumb navigation at all? That might be a great way for your customers to get around your site - there's lots of themes that include this option, here's a few of the free options if you're interested in checking them out:
If you'd prefer to keep using Narrative, no problem! We've got a guide on adding that to other themes - there's a little coding involved, but the guide is very step-by-step. Since this option can produce results that vary from theme to theme, I'd highly recommend backing up your theme before giving this a try; that will let you experiment with the results, without interrupting your customer's experience and allowing you to recover easily if you see unexpected behaviour.
If you'd prefer buttons or links that take you from one product to the next, that would involve custom coding work but it's totally possible! I'd suggest checking out the collection.next_product and collection.previous_product liquid objects - there's more info on using those right over here. That's slightly more advanced, so if you're not able to put those into effect yourself you can always reach out to one of our third party experts for hire for help in coding this for you!
Hope that's helped! Please feel free to let me know, and you can always give us a call or start a live chat at any time. We're open 24/7 for your convenience and always happy to assist!

also do you have flow this all step? or added breadcrumbs
Thank you for your help.
I have successfully added the breadcrumbs though I don't like that they look like links. I'd prefer to have them in grey. My URL is https://letlhare-eb.myshopify.com/ I'm not sure if it's safe to give my password on this platform. Please advise.
