is there a next child page button / macro?

We have a project parent page which lists a lot of child pages which (on the parent) are conveniently sorted by their titles (which start with alphanumeric task identifiers). navigation from page to page is difficult as we need to scroll down in the tree on the left side all the time. Is there a button or macro "next child" that we can put on the child pages?

I don't want to hard-link as new tasks can be inserted between so it should automatically link to the next one (in the same automatic alphanumeric order based on page title that is shown on the parent page links). If there was a "next child page" button we could add this to our task sub page template.

This might be what you are looking for:

This macro generates links for the next and previous pages in a document tree. It was built and tested with Confluence 4.1.2. It is provided without any warranty or support.

Here's what it looks like in a page (above the contents):
