Not a developer? Go to



A container tag providing a context for the entry immediately following the current entry (in terms of authored date).


  • by_author (optional): can be set to true (1) to go to the next Entry by the current author.
  • by_category (optional): can be set to true (1) to go to the next Entry in the current category.

Bug: In Movable Type 4.x there is a bug where if entries have the exact same date-time then the mt:EntryPrevious and mt:EntryNext container tags may skip an entry. This has been fixed in Movable Type 5.


        The next entry is:
        <a href="<mt:EntryPermalink>"><mt:EntryTitle></a>

Is there a way this tag could be modified to allowed EntryNext or EntryPrevious within a specific Category?
