WP-Paginate
[resolved] Deactivating and Deleting the plugin leaves code and links at bottom of page (6 posts)

    This is getting pretty annoying.
    The plugin never did work as intended from the beginning.
    Now when I deactivate and/or delete it, the links at the bottom remain and not only are they doubled-up but also point to the wrong URLs.

    Please help asap.

    Thanks

    And by the way, this can only be seen when going to any other post page other than the home page. So for example, try the second page and scroll to the bottom. The plugin has been deactivated and deleted yet this remains at the bottom.

    I think this is what was meant in this post when they person mentioned the problem. You must have looked at the first page and everything looks fine when you do that. When you go to the next page and scroll down is when you see the problem.

    So I tried again, and now I can see the pagination but it now stands up vertically in two sections. One section on the left which numbers 1 - 4, and a section on the right, also numbered 1 - 4 under the heading "pages".

    Any and all help would be greatly appreciated. I noticed that this plugin is highly rated so it must be me doing something wrong.

    Thanks

    Well, it seems that the biggest problem many of us face is that we are so used to plug and play stuff without any type of edits of the code itself. I've been doing enough WP that I can't go around not editing stuff.

    The reason I had a problem was because I was implementing this in the middle of the night and was very tired to notice things I usually would.

    Basically, and as you state in the directions everyone should read, some themes do not use a loop.php so we need to add/replace the existing code.

    Furthermore, when I was messing around with the settings I disabled the Markup Display: check box, as well as the WP-Paginate CSS File: check box.

    I then placed CSS into the themes directory and everything changed but CSS wasn't happening. Now what I did was manually entered what both those check boxes do when checked and everything started working. Others should make their life easier by reading directions and leaving those boxes as is because manually entering them is the same as letting the plugin work this out.

    So what I ended up doing was deleted the code I figured I needed....
    <div class="navigation"> and </div> closing tags and let the plugin do it where it needs to.

    I just remembered that the stock pagination works by calling for the nav class so I figured it needs something similar.

    Anyway, people just read the directions and all will be well. If something isn't working, then after implementation make sure to SHIFT-Refresh your pages to purge cache. If after that still does not work, you will likely find your answer here, if not post your questions and one of us can help you.

    Thanks for the great plugin Eric.
