Previous Post Block

Short url:

The Previous Post Block will display a navigation link for the Post that precedes the current Post. This Block is more useful for Posts, rather than Pages since they’re typically displayed in chronological order. Although you can add this block into your normal Page or Post content, it will be more useful adding it to your theme’s templates using the Full Site Editor. The link that this Block produces is typically seen at the bottom of Single Posts and allows you to navigate to the previous Post. It’s different to the Navigation links that you typically see on your main Blog Archive page (i.e. the page that shows a list of your current Posts).

Once you've added the block, there are further options available in the Settings Sidebar. Clicking on the Transform to Next post icon (Transform to Next Post) allows you to switch this block with the Next Post Block, which shows a link to the next Post.

You can change the Text and Background colours, and you can also change various Typography settings like Font size, Appearance, Decoration, Line height, Letter case & Letter spacing.

Clicking the Previous: placeholder allows you to enter a label that will appear in front of the link. Using the Include the label as part of the link switch, will include the label text within the link. You can also display an arrow icon before the link by selecting one of the Arrow toggle buttons.

The various options for this block are located within separate Settings () and Styles () tabs, in the Settings Sidebar.
