Well, I am here to clear your doubts about it. In this guide, you are going to find out what prevnext is, in a brief manner.
The term is used in different fields, in different contexts. So, it is literally impossible for me to explain everything up to the core.

Prevnext; What You Need to Know
For your reading convenience, I have divided this guide into different segments. Moreover, you can skip a portion in case you feel you are familiar with it.
What is Prevnext?
To be honest, no one can define prevnext in a sentence. As I told you already, the term is used at various places under different contexts.
Simply put, it is the short form of previous and next.
Let me ask you one thing. Have you ever seen these two words (previous and next) together at one place?
Some of you might have got it right. Yeah, on the bottom of websites, we can see these. Moreover, the popular example is Google. We all see previous and next on page navigation of Google.
So yeah, prevnext is used for page navigation on different websites.
Prevnext is widely used in coding. The usage of the same varies from language to language.
If you surf the web a lot, you may know what a slider is. Some websites feature their recent posts as an image slider above the fold (for example you can visit amazon.com, hotstar.com, etc.). When we click on previous button, it shows the entry before the one we clicked and vice versa for the next button. Here, web developers utilize the possibility of prev and next tag on jQuery.
Now let me check the use of prevnext in another platform, Drupal. I hope you heard of it before.
When you enable prevnext module on any node of Drupal, it will add two links; one to the previous node and the second one to the following node. The Drupal developers don’t find it difficult to use as the process is simple. Enable the node, regulate links from “admin/config/user-interface/prevnext”, and go to the node’s Manage display option. There you go!
