So I've been staring at the CodeX for about 10 minutes and can still not figure how to do this next and previous on a the post page.

So I've added <?php next_post_link(); ?> and <?php next_previous_link(); ?> to my page and works perfectly but I want it to say Next Post and Previous Post instead of the blog title. I've done this <?php next_post_link('% &raquo; &raquo; ', '', 'yes'); ?> copied and pasted it straight from the WordPress CodeX and not even that works it gives me the two arrows and a percentage sign.

Am I doing something wrong? I'm grateful for any help :)

Regards, Stephen


Use the following for with Custom Text with Link. The above given code by @TheDeadMedic works only with text but no link.

Code With Link and Custom Text like this:

<?php previous_post_link( '%link','Previous Post' ) ?>
<?php next_post_link( '%link','Next Post' ) ?>

Hope this helps.
