convert "link_pages" to "wp_link_pages" (6 posts)

    I have the following code for page navigation and I can't find a way to achieve the same with wp_link_pages.

    <?php link_pages('', '', 'next', 'Next page <img src="wp-content/themes/brink/images/button_next.gif" alt="Next button"/>', ''); ?>

    Any ideas?

    <?php wp_link_pages('before=&after=&next_or_number=next&pagelink=Next page <img src="wp-content/themes/brink/images/button_next.gif" alt="Next button"/>') ?>
    http://codex.wordpress.org/Template_Tags/wp_link_pages

    Does that work? I don't get what your problem is. I took that code almost straight from the codex. Did I not see what the trouble is?

    Hey tsguitar thanks for the reply but I had tried that already with no success.

    What happens is that it doesn't show the image and it shows both previous and next links while I want to show them separated, one for Next page and one for Previous page so I can style them differently.

    What if you use the pagelink attribute?
    <?php wp_link_pages('pagelink=<img src="wp-content/themes/brink/images/button_%.gif" />%') ?>

    I'm thinking that will call for button_1.gif for the first page, button_2.gif for the second page, and so on. Then you just change the names of your GIFs accordingly. Give that a shot. And look at the code to see if any part of that IMG tag renders. The image might not show because of an incorrect URL to the image, but just make sure the code is even working as it's supposed to. I don't use pages at all so I've no way to test this myself.

    And if you're going to bump, try to at least give an update on what you've tried to do since you last posted, things you've read, experiments that failed, etc. That'll help us know what you've already tried and tell us that you aren't just sitting on your hands in the meantime.

    Thanks tsguitar,

    I have tried all options with wp_link_pages and I'm stuck... I donĀ“t understand how can it be that I can' figure out this one.

    Anyway I was hoping that someone that tried to achieve the same had the explanation for this. i guess I'll just stick to link_pages.

    That's what I did in the previous post before bumping it.

    Thanks

    hello everybody,
    You can use wp_link_pages and images button with like this example :

    <?php

    $imagePrev = "http://www.yourdomainename.com/wp-content/themes/example/images/next.png"; ?>

    wp_link_pages('before=&after=&next_or_number=text&previouspagelink=<img src="'.$imagePrev.'">&nextpagelink='); ?>

    Hope someone will appreciate !
