Requested Feature (4 posts)

    I have used this plugin multiple times, it is great and easy to use!!

    Sorry I don't know if this is the right place to suggest a feature or not, but I didn't see any forums on the pagenavi homepage. And maybe this is already possible somehow and I just don't know?

    Would it be possible to set a page maximum and page minimum, so that if you don't end up with 10 post on page 1 of 1 and then 1 post on page 2 of 2. Could you set a page minimum to something like 5 and a page max to something like 10. This way if there are 11 posts the page min for page 2 of 2 would be 5, therefore 6 posts would display on the page 1 of 1 and 5 pages would display on 2 of 2.

    Thanks

    You can control the number of posts per page.

    Redistributing posts like that would be confusing to the user, IMO.

    yeah, I know how to control all of that, and I would run into the same problem if I dropped it down to 5 posts per page, when I have 6 posts I would still have 5 posts on page 1 of 2, and 1 post on page 2 of 2. I just don't like the way some pages look when you go 1 or 2 over the pagnation limit, and then you have just 1 or 2 posts on a page.

    Not sure how it would be confusing to users... if there were 11 posts (with a limit of 10 on a page) instead of seeing 10 posts on one page and 1 post on the second page the would just see 6 posts on the first page, and 5 posts on the second page. If there was 13 posts they would see 8 posts on the first page, and 5 posts on the second page

    The fact that they would see 6 posts in one case and 8 posts in another would be confusing.

    It's up to the theme to make a single post in an archive not look dumb.

    Besides, this is not something that you would handle through PageNavi, but through WP_Query.
