    Nice Plugin.
    Is it possible to limit the navigation to the category of the current post?

    • http://sharp-coders.com Anas Mir

      Hi Andreas Theile,
      First of All thank you for using WP Post Navigation
      In this current version, Actually its not possible.

  • http://www.xtremekaughs.com Eddie

    Is there a way to block certain category slugs from being displayed?

    • http://sharp-coders.com Anas Mir

      Hi Eddie, Thanks for using WP Post Navigation.
      No, Current version of this plugin doesn’t support this.

  • http://www.inkpuddle.com InkPuddlePat

    This plugin is not showing up on a static page that displays/pulls in the latest “post,” but it does show up on an individual post. I suspect this is a template issue not related to your plugin, though. Any thoughts/suggestions?

  • Mudaber Hussain Qureshi

    I want to use this navigation within category is it possible ?

    My blog is http://achisite.com

  • Vince Cordi

    I’d like the next & previous post links to appear above the post title rather than below it. Is that possible? Maybe a small customization to the plugin code will do it.

    • Ashlee Prisbrey

      I agree, I want it above the title instead of below it as well. I’m happy to work in the code, just tell me where.

      • http://sharp-coders.com/ Anas Mir

        I’ll fix this ASAP.

        • Ashlee Prisbrey

          Great! Thanks, let me know when it’s up, I’ll turn it on right away!

  • RSS

    Nice plugin! How to add a hover color to the link?

  • Maciek

    Hi

    great plugin. Could You help me – how to make the text from “Previous/Next Post Text” translateble with WPML

  • Dorian Darius

    I’m using this plugin within category but I want to use with some of category I want. What I must do for this?

  • PJ Foley

    It seems the “Navigate within category” is not working in the latest WordPress. Is it possible to get a fix? I’m really wanting to get a plugin solution for this rather than editing code. Thank you! (I’ll even donate a small amount if this happens soon!)

  • Doug

    Ana, thank you for the nice plugin. I see that two people have already asked you what I need to ask you- I want to put the navigation ABOVE the post title. Can you please advise as to how that is done. It appears that you do not provide any support….how can we donate without support?

  • http://unlimitedwhispers.com/ Deirdre B Pride

    Hello and thank you for this plugin. I currently have the plugin installed, but it does not show the previous and next post. It shows only the current post in both links. The plugin does exactly what I need and I would like to keep it.

    I’ve been using this plugin for a long time and i love it, however today’s version 1.2 update totally hosed all the CSS and borked my site. Forced to stop using it after today’s update.

    • http://sharp-coders.com/ Anas Mir

      Can you report the exact error? I’ll fix the error. New update reset the setting, you need to set CSS again.

      • https://plus.google.com/u/0/107418054739711167675 Rand Wilson

        There is no error messages.. with the update, all pages change color, and all the sidebars and sizings change and jumble/run down the page.
        I do not know what you mean by “you need to set CSS again”

        • http://sharp-coders.com/ Anas Mir

          can you send screenshot or your blog link to me at anasmir@sharp-coders.com

          • http://unlimitedwhispers.com/ Unlimited Whispers™

            I sent screen shots. Having same error.

          • https://plus.google.com/u/0/107418054739711167675 Rand Wilson

            Just sent screenshots

  • http://unlimitedwhispers.com/ Unlimited Whispers™

    plugin is not showing up properly…..since last update

    • http://theholidaze.com/ Derek4Real

      Yup, I am having the same problem too. Will reply again if I find a manual fix….

  • Deni

    Hi there, i’ve been using your plugin for quite some time now and it worked great.
    I just wanted to let you know that when i select the Top Position the plugin goes wild. All my content is mixed with widgets n stuff.
    Here’s the screenshot:

  • shoeboxapps

    Is it possible to have a settings option to swap next and pervious? Next is on the left and pervious is on the right. I would like to reverse that so the pervious is on the left and next on the right. This would match better with a time line of past=left side and future=right side. Thank you for a great plugin.

  • joe internet

    Hi! How do I disable first instants? I want to use manual insert.

  • Vincent Karma

    I just updated this plugin and I’m really not happy with it anymore. I lost all the CSS changes that I made plus the location option being removed is turning into much more of a headache than need be. Can you downgrade back to 1.2.1 and send me the zip file? Thanks.

  • https://plus.google.com/u/0/107418054739711167675 Rand Wilson

    1.2.2 seems to resolve the broken site/jumbled CSS issue!
    ..but i really miss the option for placing the links at the top and bottom :(

  • Ali Raza

    last update ruined plugin. please restore it. last update has automatically put navigation below post and in between my comments and share section. weird … restore this plugin to previous version asap … I want to show this at above my post

  • https://plus.google.com/u/0/107418054739711167675 Rand Wilson

    is it just me, or are the Previous & Next labels/links backwards in v1.2.2 ?

    • Ali Raza

      same with me … previous 2 updates ruined everything :(

  • http://sharp-coders.com/ Anas Mir

    Will release new version soon.

  • waqas mansoor

  • aarikevanson

    Is there a Navigate Within Category option? Thanks!

  • Ren Farmer

    Navigation buttons are still reversed, as noted in other posts. Please fix, as this is nice plugin except for this obvious problem !!

  • Angi

    I activated the plugin but for some reason the right arrow doesn’t show the image completely.
    is there a fix for that ?

  • Criller

    Thank you for the plugin, is very nice. I would like to show only the post of a single category but it doesn’t work.

  • Jason Charnes

    I’m late to this party, but I too had the same issue of needing previous post to be next post and vice versa. This is a great plugin and that was the only thing I really needed. I went into the plugin and reversed them. If you need it, you can get it here: https://github.com/jasoncharnes/wp-post-navigation

  • Jus

    I’ve added this plugin to my website and used the manual option to add to the single page and two the navigation shows up twice. Anyway to stop the automated one?

  • Robert

    Has anyone noticed that the direction is reversed in Safari only? Chrome, Firefox and Opera are okay.

    • Robert

      I resolved my Safari problem by installing Jason Charnes’ 1.2.21 version. So far, so good anyway. Thanks, Jason.

  • AnnieP

    Doug, this is a wonderful plugin and it is working well. One question only: Can I replace the >> and << with images of my own? (Are they even images?) I can't find them at all.

  • s_e_ray

    I needed to add to the CSS Code for Links: padding-top: 16px; but the plugin is unresponsive to this typical string? We need a white space above the text and arrow, where it has little padding. Additionally, I notice the navigation does not work by date order? Looking at a current post, the past post shown will skip over 4 other posts, in date order. I don’t comprehend the value of this plugin if it does not work in date order?

  • Uday Patel

    Custom place
    ================
    If you want to put navigation in custom place then just put
    echo isset($WPPostNavigation)?$WPPostNavigation->WP_Custom_Post_Navigation():”;
    inside single.php.

    Then after open wp-post-navigation.php file from inside plugin folder,
    Replace
    case “both”:
    with
    case “both”: return ”;

    Replace
    case “top”:
    with
    case “top”: return ”;

    Replace
    case “bottom”:
    with
    case “bottom”: return ”;

    Thats It.

  • Wondering

    What can I do? This plugin is really nice BUT “previous” and “next” buttons are not in same line. Their positions are different. What should I do?

  • Danielle

    Hello, your plug ins is very nice. Now WP updates their version do 4.0, are you going to update your plug in to this version or not ?

  • Ahmad Khalife

    Hi I like the plugin – it’s very nice.. I need the next and previous arrows to sit above the featured image just like in the bleacher report website http://bleacherreport.com/articles/2198222-greg-hardy-deactivated-by-carolina-panthers-for-week-2

    My website is http://www.benchwarming.com..
    are you able to do this for me and what would the cost be ?? thank you
