Latest Post Link

Adds commands that give you the permalink and title of the most recent post.

  1. Extract the files from the archive
  2. Upload the files to the wp-content/plugins folder of your WordPress installation
  3. Activate the plugin from the WordPress Plugins Menu from an account with administrator access.

How to use:

This plugin adds two specific functions to your WordPress installation: 'latestpostlink_permalink' and 'latestpostlink_title'

They are similar to the 'the_permalink' and 'the_title' functions that are part of a WordPress installation, except that they refer to only the most recent post in the blog.

Example 1: Link with text saying "Latest >|"

<a href="<?php latestpostlink_permalink() ?>" title="Most Recent Post">Latest >|</a>

Example 2: Link with post title included

<a href="<?php latestpostlink_permalink() ?>" title="Most Recent Post">Latest: <?php latestpostlink_title() ;?> >|</a>
