    Hi,

    I am trying to get my portfolio website up and running and I'd love for each individual post page to give links to the next and the previous posts in the same category, as opposed to next and previous posts overall.

    I am using the Gallery theme, and here's the code that the theme uses:
    <?php next_posts_link(__('<span class="meta-nav">«</span> Older posts', 'thematic')) ?>
    and
    <?php previous_posts_link(__('Newer posts <span class="meta-nav">»</span>', 'thematic')) ?>

    I know how to do this in Wordpress, but Gallery seems a little bit too tricky.
    Any help would be appreciated!
    Thanks,
    Tim

    @Chris, personally I like the idea of doing it in code -- so lightweight and to-the-point. I'm using Thematic, however, and I don't have direct access to the next_ & previous_post_link() functions. I can override them with childtheme_override_previous_post_link(), but I feel strange completely overriding everything that I want to modify.

    Is there a way I can just pass a value to this?

    previous_post_link($args['in_same_cat'])

    (That's in thematic/library/extensions/content-extensions.php for anyone who's following along.)

    It kinda looks like it's been written with that in mind, but I can't quite parse it...

    Thanks.
