I have a page with two sections, each uses a different
WP_Query() to pull in
events, which are a custom post type. Each
WP_Query() queries a
meta_key for the event date so that Section 1 only displays upcoming
events and Section 2 displays past
events in Section 1 display all relevant information on my page, so clicking them is not possible.
events in Section 2 only display the
event title and are clickable. When users click a past
event they link to a custom
single-event.php template for the past
I want to display Previous/Next navigation in the
single-event.php template, but the navigation should only point to past
I tried using
previous_post_link() but these will link to upcoming
events too, which I do not want. I can probably setup a new
WP_Query() on my
single-event.php and loop through it to get the Prev/Next IDs, but repeating the query seems like a drastic step.
I would really appreciate some insight on a way to filter out upcoming
events from my Previous/Next post links. I've seen this question but I would prefer not to use a plugin.
