WordPress Neighbor Post Preview Plugin

I assume you’re reading this post on its own page (i.e. the permalink). If you’re on the front page, or in an RSS reader, please go to its own page.

Above the title of this post, there is the previous/next post navigation bar. Now hover your mouse on the previous post link, but don’t click :) . Did you see the little bubble showing the excerpt of the previous post? That’s it!

Sometimes title is not enough for visitors to determine whether the post is worth reading. With an excerpt, more information is provided. Some posts with great titles are worthless, while some great stories are under unromantic titles.

I just made the plugin Neighbor Post Preview to do this thing. Visit its page for download and installation instructions.

Thanks to the great JavaScript libraries – Prototype and Prototip.

Hope you enjoy this plugin and I welcome all feedbacks and suggestions.


  1. Hi thinlight:

    Thanks for the great plugin. While testing it in different browsers, however, I found that the next and previous post links don’t work in Opera. In fact, they show up as text only (without links) and when I scroll down the page and back up again, the text disappears altogether until I switch programs and go back to Opera and they’re there again, but still unlinked.

    I’m using the following in my single.php:

    <?php tlnpp_previous_post_link(‘« %link’, ‘Previous Post‘) ?>
    <?php tlnpp_next_post_link(‘%link’, ‘Next Post »‘) ?>

    I’m not sure if it’s something wrong on my end, or if the plugin isn’t compatible with Opera?

    Thanks again.

  2. Hello, I’m using your plugin but I wanted to know if there is a way th shorten the title with the link ?

    thanks for your help.
