Support » Fixing WordPress » previous_post_link problem

  • I have tried to edit my code so that the previous_post_link function displays the text “Previous” on my site instead of the actual title of the article. I’ve looked at and tried to follow the directions there by editing the function accordingly in archives.php, but the changes are not showing up. Does anybody know what might be wrong?

  • Would you pastebin your existing code so we can see what you’re doing?


    The original code is as follows:

    <div class="navigation">
    			<div class="alignleft"><?php next_posts_link('&laquo; Older Entries') ?></div>
    			<div class="alignright"><?php previous_posts_link('Newer Entries &raquo;') ?></div>

    Here’s what I tried (unsuccessfully) to get it to just say ‘next’ or ‘previous’:

    <div class="navigation">
             <div class="alignleft"><?php next_post_link('%link', 'Next', TRUE); ?></div>
             <div class="alignright"><?php previous_post_link('%link', 'Previous', TRUE); ?></div>

    Again, I believe I followed the directions perfectly on . These changes were made in the archives.php file. Is there another file that should be edited?


    The top code should work, except you need to use next_posts_link (posts plural, not posts singular).
