{exp:sm_links type="previous" entry_id="3"}
	<p>Previous entry: <a href="{l_path='content/blogs'}">{l_title}</a></p>
{exp:sm_links type="next" entry_id="3"}
	<p>Next entry: <a href="{l_path='content/blogs'}">{l_title}</a></p>

Great idea and potential time saver but definitely doesn’t work as Dom and Tom said :(

This plugin just doesn’t work properly. I get the first and last entries of a channel, and l_path doesn’t behave properly either. If anyone gets this working properly, please leave a comment about how.
