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By default, hidden, unpublished and non-viewable pages are excluded. If you want them included, be sure to specify include= with hidden, unpublished or all, in your selector.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

“Indeed, if ProcessWire can be considered as a CMS in its own right, it also offers all the advantages of a CMF (Content Management Framework). Unlike other solutions, the programmer is not forced to follow the proposed model and can integrate his/her ways of doing things.” —Guy Verville, Spiria Digital Inc.
