Display specific category of blog post at the bottom (previous/next)

Hi there,

I want to know if there is a way I can display a specific category of blog post at the bottom (previous / next post).

There are two types of blog posts:

  1. ‘podcast’ (all the posts that are on the page https://www.einblick.co/podcasts/ fall into that category)
  2. ‘news’ (all the posts that are on the page https://www.einblick.co/news/ fall under that category)

What we want:

  • when someone click into any podcast blog post, they will only see other podcast blog posts at the bottom (as previous/next posts)
    AND at the same time…
  • when someone click into any news blog post, they will only see other news blog posts at the bottom (as previous/next posts)

Right now all the blog posts are displayed at the bottom regardless of the categories.

Thanks a lot!!
Marz

Hi Marz,

Thank you for contacting us about our theme Talon Pro.

Currently theme doesn’t have option to modify the output previous/next posts section.

For your case, ideally you should use a seperate post type for podcast entries instead of category.

I’d recommend using the Simple Podcasting plugin that provides a special post type only podcast type of content. And it would be a simpler solution instead of working directly from the theme’s code to change the output of the previous/next posts section to grab links from the same category.

Further adding, cases like these are pugin territory and there is nothing to do with the theme.

I hope that plugin works for you. Let me know if you have different concerns.
