[Plugin: W3 Total Cache] Problem with pagination plugins? (16 posts)

    First, I have to say that this is an amazing plugin.

    Second, I´d like to point out a problem I have been having today: I started to receive emails from my readers saying that the paged navigation disappeared. This pagination was created by the WP Page Navi plugin by Lesterchan, a renowned plugin developer. At first, I thought there could be a plugin problem, but the plugin was actually loaded and configured, and when checking the header of the generated pages I could see the .css file the plugin loads. So, the plugin was working and adding content to the header trough a hook. But where the wp_pagenavi function was called, before calling get_sidebar, there was nothing there...

    The thing is that it only happened to the 1 site I was testing W3TC on...

    So I decided to try another plugin, WP Paginate... and the same happened: css loaded (hook) but the plugin didn't output any results at all, as it outputs the holder (<div class="navigation"></div>) but with no results...

    But then I noticed that it was displaying on another browser instance (on which I was logged)... and then I noticed that sometimes it appeared on some category or tag views, and sometimes it didn´t.

    I don´t know how to debug this. Any ideas?

    Same problem here....

    I had to hard code my navigation at the bottom of my template.

    Temp fix until there is a cure.

    @senator94 + @dbasulto, go ahead and backup your settings file, deactivate and uninstall the plugin, re-download activate and restore your settings and all will be ok. Sorry for the inconvenience.

    frederick, we are running w3tc on a mu-install here, deactivating / removing / reinstalling doesn't seem to work; i can't delete the w3tc directory in wp-content since it was made by apache, is the 0.8.5. supposed to remove this for me (it doesn't)?

    You cannot manually remove it or change the permissions so that you can remove it?

    Hi, i got the same issue but i don't understand the solution. Did you mean remove WP Page Nave plugin?? or W3 Total cache?

    Thanks

    I meant to re-install W3TC, make sure you have the latest copy.

    so...

    i asked my hosting provider to make all w3tc files 777 so i could delete them. i also deleted advanced-cache.php and db.php as w3tc requested.

    i then made wp-content 777, copied over a new 0.8.5 install to /wp-content/plugins and activated w3tc.

    the w3tc settings page now says: "Page caching is not available: advanced-cache.php is not installed. Either the /var/www/web-docs/wp-content directory is not write-able or you have another caching plugin installed. This error message will automatically disappear once the change is successfully made."

    while lower on the page it says: "/var/www/web-docs/wp-content is write-able. If you've finished installing the plugin, change the permissions back "

    w3tc was the only installed caching plugin, obviously.

    what to do?

    Hi, i delete all W3TC files and reinstall the plugin and still doesn't work....

    My Pagination still doesn't work for my cached pages.

    @litemotiv,

    the w3tc settings page now says: "Page caching is not available: advanced-cache.php is not installed. Either the /var/www/web-docs/wp-content directory is not write-able or you have another caching plugin installed. This error message will automatically disappear once the change is successfully made."

    Then advanced-cache.php wasn't copied. Copy or FTP it yourself from wp-content/plugins/w3-tatal-cache/wp-content/advanced-cache.php to wp-content/advanced-cache.php

    @webadictos,

    My Pagination still doesn't work for my cached pages.

    Then try disabling database cache, empty your page cache and see if the problem persists.

    @frederick, something is definitely not right with the writing of files/directories. i copied advanced-cache.php and db.php and caching works again now, but the w3tc directory and it's contents are also not created, so minifying doesn't work.

    could there be a problem with determining server paths?

    @litemotiv, Only if there are permission issues. Can you submit a bug submission via the support tab in the plugin so I can get basic details on your server configuration?
