Reviews

FIXED – Really Good but doesn't detect first and last post

I really like this plugin, it’s really easy and easy to customise even more if you know css (I decreased the size of the panels.)

However, when I am at my last post, the tab for Next Post keeps showing this current post, because it’s the last one. Same with the first post when looking at Previous Post.

Maybe add an option for looping, or just add a condition and don’t display the tab if it’s the first/last post? 🙂

Thanks!

Looks great!

Still works on latest WP, two years after last update. One star less than perfect due to minor quibble about last post activity. Other than that, great!
