WP Single Post Navigation

Plugin adds next & prev nav links on single posts to have a "browse post by post nav style". Includes customizeable parameters.

1.5 (2012-06-20)

  • New features:
    • NEW: Added tooltip display for the arrows, containing the title of the next/ previous post.
    • UPDATE: Improved changing of browsing direction via constant: now the browsing direction is reversed and also natively the direction of both arrows! (Just add: define( 'WPSPN_REVERSE_LINK_DIRECTION', TRUE ); to your theme/ child theme to achieve this!)
    • NEW: Added own action hook for enqueueing own plugin or custom user stylesheets!
    • NEW: If a WPSPN stylesheet file wpspn-styles.css is found in your active theme's/child theme's root folder, this will be the used stylesheet - if it's not there, the packaged plugin stylesheet is being used! This is really handy, if you need to enqueue your own stylesheet and nothing else (i.e. for Multisite purposes...). All update-secure and really easy to handle!
    • NEW: Possible user style additions, additional to the plugin's default stylesheet: if a WPSPN stylesheet file wpspn-additions.css is found in your active theme's/child theme's root folder it will be added after the plugin's default. This way you can add some more rules or override existing selectors/rules. Again, all update-secure and really easy to handle!
    • NEW: Default plugin stylesheet now compressed/minified for improved performance. (To see the un-compressed stylesheet, just open the packaged bonus file single-post-navigation.dev.css)

    • CODE: Minor code improvement: hooked loading call for textdomain into init hook for fullfilling standard
    • CODE: Added a few extra conditionals for some theme/template names to avoid conflicts between identically named themes from different vendors.
