I figured this would be a fairly comon thing. But I can't seem to find out how to do it. Or I'm just not using the correct search terms.

I've got a website with a hompage that lists all my posts, and 3 menu items that each list a category.

When I click on a post via a category, then I want the next|prev navigation to stay in that category.

When I click on a post via the homepage, I want the next|prev navigation to be chronolonical.

This is de navigation code which is in my single.php

<?php next_post_link('%link', '< Previous ', FALSE); ?> <?php previous_post_link('%link', '| Next >', FALSE); ?>

This is the correct setupt for navigating there from the homepage, but not when I get there via a category.

Please help, I've been banging my head on this for hours now!

Kind regards.

  • <?php previous_post_link($format='&laquo %link', $link='%title', $in_same_cat = true); ?> TRY this $in_same_cat = true); This will make it work in same category Dec 28 '12 at 15:40
  • @KuldeepDaftary, that should be posted as an answer, not a comment.
