[resolved] posts_nav_link bug? (5 posts)

    I hesitate to say that this IS a bug ...

    Using posts_nav_link in WP 2.1.1 (for paged posts) on my index page works fine with default permalinks, but with a custom permalink doesnt.

    With the custom permalink /index.php/%post_id% I start off from
    http://localhost/projects/Wordpress-test1/

    and using Next Page go to (error page) http://localhost/projects/Wordpress-test1/index.php/page/2/

    With default permalinks I go succesfully from
    http://localhost/projects/Wordpress-test1/

    to
    http://localhost/projects/Wordpress-test1/index.php?paged=2

    Okay ...

    I went over that page many times before I posted - which bit of that page should I be reading?

    Ok, resolved it.

    I needed to put a query_string in the query_posts <?php query_posts($query_string . 'order=DESC&showposts=2') ?> which was in front of The Loop. For anyone reading, it's on this page and preserves information that would otherwise be lost:

    <?php query_posts($query_string . 'order=DESC&showposts=2') ?>

    this doesn't always work.
    for example, i have a total of 12 posts.
    my admin number of posts to display is set for 3.
    if i specify:
    <?php query_posts($query_string . 'order=DESC&showposts=2') ?>
    i'll get an error for /page/5

    ?query_string basically knows ahead of time how many pages it needs to produce based on your admin default. if it goes beyond that amount, you'll receive an error.
