First lab release of prevnext


This plugin adds a widget for navigating topically from one post to another in the same blog; for each tag, each category, each language, it presents links to the previous and next article that shares the same tag, category or language.

The maintenance page for this plugin is located at this address:


Use the zipped file attached to the maintenance page. The new widget appears in the default widgets and is available in the widget area Blog > Presentation widgets.

The parameters are simple: title of the widget (leave empty for no title) and the symbols used on each line for the next or preceding post of the same nature.


This plugin is compatible with the dctranslations plugin and lists the available translations for the current post (when dctranslations is installed).

The infoEntry has some common functionality (and others) but only for categories (neither tags nor language). Other older plugins also covered this area for Dotclear 2β6 (SameCat).

The current version of this plugin is 1.2.3 (local svn 402).

This plugin is licensed under GPL version 2.0.


There are some pending projects about that, but it is currently very poor. The widget allows to have custom left- and right-pointing symbols, and there are the CSS rules that I use:

#prevnext ul {
    text-align: center;
    margin: 0 1ex;
#prevnext li {
    display: block;
    background: none;
    padding-left: 0;
    padding-right: 0;
#prevnext li.tags-sep +li {
    border-top: 1px solid;
    padding-top: 6px;
    display: block;
    background: none;


To tell me about a bug or helping this plugin

The best way is to contact me by mail (for a bug) or leave a comment (telling me you tested this extension) at the maintenance page. In case of an update, I will modify the maintenance page accordingly.
