This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.

Post Links Redux


The standard WordPress template tags used for post navigation (next_post, previous_post, next_post_link, and previous_post_link) don’t offer this functionality, leaving you with nothing returned if there isn’t a post. This plugin changes that.

NOTE!!! This plugin only works (without a hack in your template) on single post pages.

You can find the plugin home page (and leave comments) here.


plr_[next|previous]_post_link(‘format’, ‘link’, ‘in_same_cat’, ‘excluded_categories’)


This would show “Next Post Title →” as a link if there was a post that came after the currently-viewed post, or “next post:” as plain text if the current post is the most recent.


This plugin uses the same parameters and format as the next_post and previous_post WordPress functions. For more info on these functions, please visit the codex.


  1. Upload post-links-redux.php to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory.
  2. Activate Post Links Redux through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress.
  3. Add (or replace) the template tags in your theme where you would like your links to show up.
