I have been editing PHP templates in wordpress for the tti-fl.com website. In their resources tab, which is the blog, the navigation currently says ‘Posted’, ‘Tagged in’ and then the links underneath the bottom of the page. I found the navigation in the template-tags.php and was able to edit the first two to say ‘Posted:’ and ‘Tagged:’, but the links need to have Previous and Next appear before them. Plus I also want to add a break between the post navigation and the links after Previous and Next.

The biggest problem I have is with the %link and %title when working on getting the ‘previous’ and ‘next’ to show up. Plus the pagination is set to the_post_navigation() and when I try to do the_posts_navigation(), the links do not show up at the bottom of the page.

PHP with posts_navgation():

<?php if ( get_next_posts_link() ) : ?>
<div class="nav-previous"><span class="tags-links">Previous: </span><?php next_posts_link( esc_html__( 'Older posts', 'thermal-tech' ) ); ?></div>
<?php endif; ?>

<?php if ( get_previous_posts_link() ) : ?>
<div class="nav-next">span class="tags-links">Next: </span><?php previous_posts_link( esc_html__( 'Newer posts', 'thermal-tech' ) ); ?></div>
<?php endif; ?>

PHP with post_navigation():

previous_post_link( '<div class="nav-previous"><span class="tags-links">Previous: </span>%link</div>', '%title' );
next_post_link( '<div class="nav-next"><span class="tags-links">Next: </span>%link</div>', '%title' );
