Loop Post Navigation Links v1.5

I’d lke to announce the official release of the updated Loop Post Navigation Links plugin (v1.5) for WordPress.

Template tags (for use in single.php) to create post navigation loop (previous to first post is last post; next/after last post is first post).

This release features the addition of %date as a format string, added filters, WP2.8+ compatibility, and dropped support for pre-WP2.6.

The plugin’s official homepage is located at :

Update: Plugin updated to v1.5.1 (see comment below for more information)

Comments welcome on this post for this version of the plugin. Comments will be closed once this release has been superseded by another.

Is there a way to do the same thing in the index page?
I would like to navigate from the index page through all the posts in all the categories. From the first article in the first category to the last article of the last category and start again.


v1.5.1 of this plugin has been released

This release does the following:

* Add PHPDoc documentation
* Note compatibility with WP 2.9+
* Update copyright date

Sorry for my poor english…
Excellent idea your plugin! And excellent the intention and functionality of this and your other plugins!
Well, I have a problem with my wp theme related to navigation in single.php, and I think it could be interesting to include a solution for it, maybe in your plugin… Or maybe you can suggest me another solution.
I have categories and subcategories. At the top of every category there is a sticky post, not properly a ‘post’ but a space with some descriptive text and sometimes a link to a form. Technically it’s a post, I know.. But when viewing another post belonging to that category, this sticky is included in the navigation (function previous and next _post_link). It breaks the continuity of the navigation.
I would like to avoid the presence of this sticky post in the previous-next navigation links. Is this possible?
Thanks in advance
