[resolved] How to add "previous entries" and "newer entries" to posts (5 posts)

    I just uploaded a new theme called BFA Round Tabs 1.0 by Bytesforall. I just noticed that this theme does not allow readers to read older posts because there is no "previous entries" and "newer entries" link at the bottom. I tried adding a html code to get "previous entries" and "newer entries" links to show up at the bottom by adding the html code to the index.php. I succeeded getting the links to show up on the home page. However, I failed getting the links to show up in my categories/archive posts. If anybody could help me, I would be really grateful. Here is my site http://www.audreydao.com

    I also have another problem similar to the previous entries and newer entries. My Add This link will only show up on the homepage posts. It won't show up on my posts in archive/categories.

    I guess you have got as far as using this code for the links?

    <span class='older'><?php next_posts_link('&laquo; Older Entries'); ?></span>
    <span class='newer'><?php previous_posts_link('Newer Entries &raquo;'); ?></span>

    Have you also added the code to your archives.php file and page.php file as it is not present by default... (am assuming is the same issue for the 'add this' issue)...

    Hope that helps

    Can I stick the code in anywhere I want in archives.php file and page.php file? Or is there a specific place?
