  • I’ve found oodles of plugins that allow you to link to the next post in a category, or the next day/week/month of posts, but how about just jumping to the next or previous post chronologically?

    Gah! Never mind. Found those template tags. Sorry.

  • This is how the default theme does it…
    <div class="navigation">
    <div class="alignleft"><?php posts_nav_link('','','&laquo; Previous Entries') ?></div>
    <div class="alignright"><?php posts_nav_link('','Next Entries &raquo;','') ?></div>
    </div>

    When I use this, nothing shows up. Any idea why?

    I am using it with a new theme I’m making and it does fine. EXCEPT, the “Previous Entries” shows up when browsing in a category even when there are no previous entries available. Clicking on it shows a “Not Found”.

    How can I insert this to where it only shows up on the comments page? If I use <?php if ($single) { ?> it doesn’t work at all.

    Well I just tried it after scratching my head on how to do it and it works fine with the theme I use, though I can’t seem to display it on the comments page – that’s the next step for me.

    sylday – you can use the code without the navigation div or with I found, but you need to assign a class in your CSS – perhaps that’s why it isn’t displaying for you?

    Look at the default theme in single.php. There is something very similar in there, but I think the functions used are different.

    <div class=”left”><?php previous_post(‘« %’,”,’yes’) ?></div>
    <div class=”right”><?php next_post(‘ % »’,”,’yes’) ?></div>

    Is the code, though when I tried it I got a fatal call error

    Yeah, ever since I installed 1.5, I, too, have been getting a 404 when I click “previous entries” link on the front page.

    ANy suggestions?

    Have you updated your rewrite rules?

    for some odd reason my front page’s “Previous Entries” link is

    /archives/category/all/page/2/

    rather than the

    /page/2/

    I’ve updated my permalinks. The only thing I have in the permalinks -admin page is this:

    /archives/%year%/%monthnum%/%day%/%postname%/

    any help would be wonderful. A lot of users are being shown the 404

    I’ve been getting a 404 as well since I updated to 1.5.1

    Previous links points to “http://www.husseh.com/wp/cgi-system/php.cgi?paged=2”

    “cgi-system” doesn’t even exist!

    me too. Previous links gives me a 404
    “…/wp/cgi-system/php.cgi”
    message. For me this is not an upgrade.

    Yet, the previous and next entry links work when I am in the archives.
