FAQ

Where is the best place to show WP Next Post Navi?

Even though this plugin gives you the option to show the navigation links/buttons at the top and bottom of the post, I think it’s best to show it at the bottom of each article.

A great plugin. It helps me to improve the navigation of my blog. Thank you 🙂

I can't do code and I don't understand how to do coding and this plugin is my lifesaver to make a prev-next button for the same category Kudos for the developer

In terms of its basic functionality - this plugin is great. It locks to the bottom of the page and will navigate from post to post in date order within a single category which is what I needed. However, a major improvement required is either adding the ability to upload your own text link icon, or to recode the text link icon from inline HTML to CSS. As it currently stands the only way I can change the icon for text link styles navigation is to edit the plugin code which is no bueno. Another feature that would be nice to have is the ability to only enable the plugin for certain post types and taxonomies.

Easy to setup and there are only a few options to select - which is actually nice. Love the option to "Navigate Within Category". CSS is good as-is didn't need to change a thing and responsive works perfectly well large screen to small mobile. Well done - thanks for this!

This plugin did what no one else could do with my theme without paying a programmer to build it - it provides previous and next links within a specific category. It would be nice if there were more formatting options without having to go into the theme's CSS. There is CSS for the text, but it would be nice to be able to control the format of the buttons (colors, 3d options, padding, margins, etc). It would also be nice to be able to add labels/prefixes to the post title (vs generic navigation labels), for example, arrows or carets to indicate that you are moving in a direction: "← [Post Title]" or "Previous Post: [Post Title]" instead of just "[Post Title]"
