jra_link_to_next & jra_link_to_prev

These 2 article tags are replacements for link_to_next and link_to_prev which offer additional section and sort attributes to better reflect the position in the list.

Optional attributes are:

  • section, which limits the list to the section;
  • showalways, default to 0, like the txp attribute. When 0, the enclosed contents is not shown if there is no link (beginning and end of list). When 1, the contents is shown even if there’s no link. (thanks for commentors for pointing at it missing). Added v0.2.
  • sort, a SQL string which controls the ordering of the list.

The latter was my motivation for this plugin. For example, in a list defined as follows:

<txp:article section='listings' limit="6" sort="custom_7,LastMod desc"/>

once you open an article, what is prev and next?

In this case, it’s this:

<txp:jra_link_to_prev sort="custom_7,LastMod desc" section='listings'>[<< Prev]</txp:jra_link_to_prev>

and this:

<txp:jra_link_to_next sort="custom_7,LastMod desc" section='listings'>[Next >>]</txp:jra_link_to_next>
