Wordpress Plugins 644
The Next and Previous post links guides your visitor through your WordPress site. When it comes to creating strong site-wide navigation, some of the most powerful tools for moving your visitor around are these link tags.
Note: “Previous” and “Next” in this case refer to posts in the order that they are in, not to any particular direction in time. This often confuses many people, as WordPress, by default displays posts starting from the newest and proceeding backwards in time. Using this default ordering, “Next” would be moving backwards in time, because the “Next” page after page 1 would be page 2, and that would move to older posts. If the post ordering is changed (like via a manual usage of query_posts in a template), then the links will point in different directions. This codex article uses both methods without explanation, because it is example code only. So it is important to keep in mind that the function is referring to an order that is independent of chronological time.

  1. It seems a very interesting plugin, but i don’t understand ho it works.
    I have installed and activated it.
    How can i insert it to a page, so that i can use it to go to the nest?

    1. Use the Settings -> Next Story screen to configure the plugin. Select the post type you want to show it on. And if you have more than one post you can see the navigation on frontend.

      1. I would love to see the be able to select categories, using it in a eCommerce site. Will be willing to donate to that.

  2. Can i use it only for the sub-pages that are under a main page of the menu?

    1. No, you can’t. But it’s great idea. This feature will be in the next release. I’ll let you know when it will be done.

  3. It would be much appreciatd!
    Thank you!!

  4. Great plugin . Works very well. Thank you very much.

  5. This is no doubt one of the best and fanciest plugins out there. It is definitely useful for e-learning where learners need to navigate between previous and next lessons. I need to know how to add images to the tabs to “wow” my students.

    1. Need add the featured image to the post. If you don’t see this metabox you need add theme support

      1. Hi Elena,

        My apologies! For some unexplained reason, I was expecting an email and decided to check back in because I did not receive one LOL!

        Would you have any idea why the “next page” tab does not show for on new sub-pages? For example, I added a “new sub-page” to existing sub-pages and ordered it as “order 2”. The previous page tab is displayed but not the next page regardless of which order I put it in. Would you know how to fix it?
        Thank you for taking the time out of your busy schedule to check on it. I will check back in a few days for your response.

        Warmest regards,

  6. Amazing plugin and cool web design. Thanks and congrats.

  7. I really like this plugin; sadly, like most plugins it has bugs/glitches. Perhaps it is the theme “Divi”.
    I don’t mind paying a subscription fee for the plugin or even paying for a Pro or Upgrade version that would potentially eliminate the bugs.
    1. When subsequent sub-pages are added to the main page, the “next” tab is not being displayed.
    Example: I added a new page and ordered it as page 4. The “next” tab does not display (indicate that there are subsequent pages) at all to point the reader to page 5.
    2. Need to display the navigation tab only that pages that have sub-pages
    Is this something that the creator(s) of the plugin would consider looking into?
    Thanks in advance for reading my message and replying.

  8. Hi Elena,
    thanks for this nice plugin. It works fine, but it doesn’t have all functions on responsive devices. I used “slide”, but on the smartphone doesn’t slide. It’s only a link to click and the user can’t see where to go. Is there a possibility to add some code to make it sliding also on responsive devices?
    Thanks, bezz

  9. Hello,
    It is great plugin, but it is not based on current post category. Example: If a user sees a message from “PC”, the user receive the message from the category “Lifestyle” .. not useful for large sites with different content ..
    I really liked this plugin, but unfortunately cant use it in my web project. Maybe for a blog with one category it will be good.

  10. Hello,
    This plugin in very usefull. Thank you for giving it out. I would like to knwo if it will be possible to fine tune it by sorting for example by author even in the post type. This would be the graal if possible.
    Once again many thanks for this

  11. Отличный плагин! Только давно не обновлялся! Очень не хочется от него отказываться! Если у вас есть возможность – обновите его для совместимости с ВП 4.9.5
