Calling custom fields for next/previous posts

Custom fields are definitely very useful and are used on many WordPress installs. Today I’m going to show you how to easily get custom fields values outside the loop.

With that said, I’d like to say I am using this snippet for a new theme I am building.

I want to pull a custom field from the “next” & “previous” post. So I used the following to do so:

<?php
  $previous_post = get_previous_post();
  $next_post = get_next_post();
  $image_prev = get_post_meta( $previous_post->ID, 'image', $single = true);
  $image_next = get_post_meta( $next_post->ID, 'image', $single = true);
?>

Simple. This is how I put it to use:

<?php if ( $image_prev != '' ) : ?>

  <img src="<?php echo FROSTY_SCRIPTS  ?>/thumb.php?src=<?php echo $image_prev; ?>&amp;h=50&amp;w=169&amp;zc=1&amp;q=80" alt="" />

<?php endif; ?>
