Cheers to new useful tags.

Would something like this do?

<txp:link_to_next>
    <!-- article tags are populated with the next article data -->
    <h3><txp:title /></h3>
    <txp:excerpt />
    ...
</txp:link_to_next>

I like your idea of making more content available to the existing tag. There are situations where you want to preview the next article with an image or perhaps some custom_field info.

Thinking aloud, would it be possible/useful to also add an optional attribute to the link_to_next to constrain next/prev to a particular criterion? I admit I haven’t thought it through.

You mean, like smd_horizon? If so, yeah, that’d make my hacky plugin obsolete, which is good in my book.

Next article in category xyz, next article in section abc, next article with custom_field book_title, …

This one is committed now, invalidating (but superseding) Mickael plugin in 4.7.

This one is internally more tricky and would make link_to_ another article_custom clone. Doable, but needs some thinking.

Yay! I always prefer to do things with core tags rather than a plugin. And I really like the way you implemented it in such a textpatterny way.
