Sometimes a site needs more access to next and previous entries than ExpressionEngine’s built-in next/previous tags provide.
With the Nearby Entries plugin, you can display not just one but any number of next and previous links. Order them not only chronologically by entry date but by any column in the exp_channel_titles table, such as edit date, expiration date, entry id or title. Filter them using standard channel:entries parameters such as status, category and author (search by custom fields coming soon). And display their custom fields.
For more information, see the docs.
Nearby Entries is now free and released under the GPL license.
