Oh and I don't know why I've chosen for this to be a private ticket. If you could change to a public one then I'm fine with that.
Sure, it's public now.
Edit the inc/post-loop.php file and locate the pagination code beginning on line 483:
<div class="pagination pagination-normal">
<div class="span12 pagination-inner">
<?php echo it_pagination($numpages, $format, it_get_setting('page_range')); ?>
You would have to move that up above probably line 338. Might require some css tweaks too...
Thanks. I'll give that a go.
