    Hi all, been developing this site http://spaceandtime.dyndns.org:2/lemondropdrama/news/ it needs to have the 'Older/Newer' posts pagination on it. Tried every Google search under the sun and just can't seem to get it working right.

    Seems to have the pagination links but these don't work correctly.

    Help would be much appreciated!

    What code are you using?

    Total guess without seeing it, but are you passing the paged argument to the query?

    Thanks for answering!

    Here is the code:

    <?php
    /*
    Template Name: news
    MultiEdit: One centered column with no sidebar
    */

    get_header(); ?>

    <div id="content">
    <div class="contentTop2 newspad">

    <div id="newsTitle">/news/">Latest News</div>

    <?php
    $args = array( 'numberposts' => 1, 'post_status'=>"publish",'post_type'=>"post",'orderby'=>"post_date");
    $postslist = get_posts( $args );

    foreach ($postslist as $post) : setup_postdata($post); ?>
    <div class="postNews">

    <?php if ( has_post_thumbnail() ) { /* loads the post's featured thumbnail, requires WordPress 3.0+ */
    echo '<div class="featured-thumbnail">'; the_post_thumbnail(); echo '</div>';
    } ?>

    <div class="newsRightPost">

    <div class="newsTitle">" title="<?php the_title(); ?>"><?php the_title(); ?></div>

    $args = array( 'numberposts' => 1, 'post_status'=>"publish",'post_type'=>"post",'posts_per_page'=>1,'orderby'=>"post_date",'paged' => get_query_var('paged'));

    Can you please (as per forum rules) put the code in to a Pastebin? It makes it difficult to read posts if you place big chucks of code in them.

    That said, you code looks a little off. For next_posts_link() and previous_posts_link() to work, you need to have run query_posts, not get_posts(). Basically, WP doesn't know what posts to look at for next/previous, becuase there is nothing in the $wp_query global for it to check.

    Have a read of these and it should set you on the right path -

    And yes to adding 'paged' => get_query_var('paged');.

    I take it also that you only expect 1 more post to be displayed when you click on 'Older'/'Newer'? Usueally this scenario is used for an Index page, where multiple Posts are listed.

    Thanks both,
    Pasted in what you said nitin_8 but came up with Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /Applications/MAMP/htdocs/lemondropdrama/wp-content/themes/lemondropdrama/news.php on line 19

    Sorry duck_boy didn't realise about the code rule.
    I was just changing the post number to see if the pagination worked as there is only 3 news items at the moment but there will be 4/5 per page.

    Here is the pastebin link http://pastebin.com/3H4rPACL

    Try it with this: http://pastebin.com/unHjw8uh

    This is untested so backup your file first.

    Oh sorry kees. I think it is fixed, I didn't think to change the posts per page.

    Thanks so much!
