I've found many pagination tutorials/plugins that work on pages displaying a list of posts such as index.php

E.g. - http://design.sparklette.net/teaches/how-to-add-wordpress-pagination-without-a-plugin

However I want this to display on single post pages (single.php) so you can navigate through to the next/prev post.

Any ideas?


I know Twenty Eleven include this functionality by default and I've come to expect it as default behavior, so I hope I'm not missing something here.

You should be able to add this to single.php by using the previous_post_link() and next_post_link() functions.

  • thanks. I've already got prev/next post links. I'm trying to add a graphical style pagination to the page. – fxfuture Oct 7 '11 at 4:23

There's a built-in template tag for this: wp_link_pages(). It's used in Twentyeleven in content-page.php.
