Add class to next and previous post_link

wordpress snippet

I recently needed to use this for a theme I was building figured I would post the results up here for everyone. Adding this snippet to the functions.php of your wordpress theme will add a custom class to next and previous post_link.

snippet :  PHPcopy
function add_class_next_post_link($html){
    $html = str_replace('<a','<a class="next"',$html);
    return $html;
function add_class_previous_post_link($html){
    $html = str_replace('<a','<a class="prev"',$html);
    return $html;
