WP Vegas
[resolved] Possible conflict with next_post_link()? (3 posts)

    Hi There,

    Happy New Year! You have a great plugin -- thank you!

    I have a question/issue, perhaps you have some insights. I'm creating a custom theme and am using your plugin for individual post pages. In my single.php page (actually, I'm using a custom post type, so it's single-POSTTYPE.php), I have a navigation menu for users to click to the next post and previous post using next_post_link() and previous_post_link(). Without the Vegas plugin, this navigation works fine. However, as soon as I add the Vegas shortcode for the slide I want to use, the navigation points to the next Vegas slide page instead of the next post page.

    This is happening with both WP 3.6.1 & 3.8. I'm currently running WP 3.8 & Vegas 1.5.

    I have a feeling this may not be resolve-able because Vegas is a custom post-type as well.

    I'm on developing locally right now, unfortunately!

    Okay. Solved the issue. Phew.

    You're (of course) calling a loop to retrieve the slides from within the content area. Which means, when I was using the next_post_link() it was doing it from your loop and retrieving the next Vegas slide page. In order to have the next_post_link() retrieve the next post instead of Vegas slide, I either need to call the loop again for the post-type or move your shortcode outside of the content box to somewhere after I use the navigation links.

    So I am using Advanced Custom Field plugin and creating custom fields on each post page for the pertinent Vegas slide info (slide ID, fade, delay, etc) and in my template file, I am using do_shortcode() after my navigation divs.

    Whew. Works.

    Thanks again!! This plugin is fantastic.

    Good work figuring that out! I'm glad you like it. One of my new years resolutions is to nail down some time when I can work on this thing again so hopefully 1.6 will be out in the near future (though I've been saying that for almost a year now)
