Note that the parent string matches the identifier. The weight determines the order. Default order is alphabetical.

Series of content

For adding next, previous navigation buttons to a single page

All single pages within a series are collected, sorted by series_weight and next, previous navigation is added at build time.

An example can be seen on the Getting Started page. If the user is at the first or last pages they will see a disabled, next or previous navigation button.
