[resolved] pagination problems (4 posts)

    I'm having issues with my navigation (pagination) not function correctly. When I use Next or Prev it displays the same posts.
    I'm hoping to query posts from 2 categories (3,4) and display them.

    Here is the code:

    <!-- Start the Loop. -->
    <?php query_posts('showposts=4') ?>
    <?php if ( have_posts() ) : while ( have_posts() ) : the_post(); ?>
    
    <div class="post">
    <!-- Display the Title as a link to the Post's permalink. -->
    <h2><a href="<?php the_permalink(); ?>"><?php the_title(); ?></a></h2>
    
    <!-- Display the Time. -->
    <strong style="margin-bottom:5px;"><small><?php the_time('F jS, Y'); ?></small></strong>
    
    <!-- Display the Post's Content in a div box. -->
    <div class="entry">
    <?php the_excerpt(); ?>
    </div>
    
    <!-- Display a comma separated list of the Post's Categories. -->
    <p class="postmetadata"><?php the_tags('Tags: ', ', ', ''); ?> Posted in <?php the_category(', ') ?> | <?php edit_post_link('Edit', '', ' | '); ?>  <?php  comments_popup_link('No Comments »', '1 Comment »', '% Comments »'); ?>Posted by <?php the_author() ?> on <?php the_time('F jS, Y') ?>
    
    <div class="hr"></div>
    
    </div><!-- closes the first div box -->
    
    <!-- Stop The Loop (but note the "else:" - see next line). -->
    <?php endwhile; else: ?>
    
    <!-- The very first "if" tested to see if there were any Posts to -->
    <!-- display.  This "else" part tells what do if there weren't any. -->
    Sorry, no posts matched your criteria.
    
    <!-- REALLY stop The Loop. -->
    <?php endif; ?>
    
    <div class="navigation">
    <div class="alignleft"><?php next_posts_link('&laquo; Older Entries') ?></div>
    <div class="alignright"><?php previous_posts_link('Newer Entries &raquo;') ?></div>
    </div>

    Anyone seen any pagination issues like this?

    I think this is a query_posts problem; you need to specify the $paged parameter or something like that. Look around, there are tips for this. (I haven't fixed my problem but my query is much more complex...)

    Thanks, it was in fact the $paged parameter.
