WordPress Tools: MW Next/Previous

This plugin generates links for the previous and next posts; the difference between these functions (mw_next_post and mw_previous_post) and the default WordPress functions next_post and previous_post is that the new functions accept prefix and postfix strings as the third and fourth parameters of the function.
