Syntax

<txp:newer />

The newer tag is both a single tag and a container tag. The tag should be used in a page after an article tag.

Textpattern will replace this tag with a link to the next list of articles in the sort order. The container tags wrap the text or tag assigned to the link. As a single tag it outputs the URL for the next list page.

An article list consists of the assigned number of articles set by the article tag. If there are no articles available having ‘Newer’ status (articles ranked higher, or newer, in the present sort criteria than the present top of page article) <txp:newer /> will not display unless the showalways attribute is set to 1. It is normally seen used in tandem with older.

Given a <txp:article limit="5" /> tag on the page in question, <txp:newer /> will page down five articles at a time from the most oldest post forward in time to the most recently posted article.

Note: This tag is context-sensitive, meaning it will only fetch content from the section or category being viewed.
