First Post Link

Adds commands that give you the permalink and title of the oldest 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: 1. 'firstpostlink_permalink' and 2. 'firstpostlink_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 oldest post in the blog. Technically they give information from the first one in the database, so in some unusual circumstance that might not be the oldest.

Example 1: Link with text saying "|< First"

<a href="<?php firstpostlink_permalink() ?>" title="Oldest Post">|< First</a>

Example 2: Link with post title included

<a href="<?php firstpostlink_permalink() ?>" title="Oldest Post">|< First: <?php firstpostlink_title() ;?></a>

Requires: 3.1.1 or higher
Compatible up to: 3.5.2
