$page->next() method

Return the next sibling page

By default, hidden, unpublished and non-viewable pages are excluded. If you want them included, be sure to specify include= with hidden, unpublished or all, in your selector.


// Get the next sibling
$sibling = $page->next();

// Get the next newest sibling
$sibling = $page->next("created>$page->created");

// Get the next sibling, even if it isn't viewable
$sibling = $page->next("include=all");


// basic usage
$page = $page->next();

// usage with all arguments
$page = $page->next($selector = '', PageArray $siblings = null);


selector (optional)string, array

Optional selector. When specified, will find nearest next sibling that matches.

siblings (optional)PageArray

Optional siblings to use instead of the default. Avoid using this argument as it forces this method to use the older/slower functions.

“We were really happy to build our new portfolio website on ProcessWire! We wanted something that gave us plenty of control on the back-end, without any bloat on the front end - just a nice, easy to access API for all our content that left us free to design and build however we liked.” —Castus, web design agency in Sheffield, UK
