Support » Installing WordPress » activating a new plugin

  • Help! I have downloaded a plugin – pagenavi and installed it on my server and activated it there as instructed by the author. Now I can find no way to get page navigation on to my WordPress blog via the site admin. I had no reply from the author. Can anyone help?

  • Did you add this somewhere in your templates:

    <?php wp_pagenavi(); ?>

    You can also check Gamerz forums for further help with his plugins:

    Yes, as instructed by Lester Chan, I added: <?php wp_pagenavi()?> to : wp-content/themes/<WordPress Default>/footer.php – I use WordPress Default 1.5 theme.

    I saw no change on my Dashboard or any other way of adding navigation to my site – what should I do now?

    I tried to register at Gamerz forums but nothing happened when I clicked ‘register’.

    Thanks for a bit more help!


    The navigation is there, on your blog page (if it’s that linked from your name), but it’s at the very very very bottom. Very tiny 🙂 It’s not supposed to show up on Dashboard.

    Maybe you could replace the current “Previous/Next Entries” navigation (is it posts_nav_link?) with the new one. The navigation can be found in the Main template and Archive template (at least).
    Well, now that I checked, you probably have it something like this at the moment:
    <div class="navigation">
    <div class="alignleft"><?php next_posts_link('&laquo; Previous Entries') ?></div>
    <div class="alignright"><?php previous_posts_link('Next Entries &raquo;') ?></div>

    You could replace it with
    <div class="navigation">
    <?php wp_pagenavi()?>

    Minna – thanks! I spent a long time trying to figure out what you were talking about, but can not! you say “very very very bottom”, but bottom of what? I looked everywhere on the blog and in site admin, under every tab.

    Also you referred to “Main template and Archive template”, but where are they?

    When I find the above and do the replacement you suggest, how will I set the navigation buttons?

    Thanks Minna from sunny Corsica!

    Podz’s screen capture shows exactly what I meant.

    As to the other question, Main template and Archive template can be found in the list, when you go to Presentation > Theme editor (remember to choose the correct theme to edit (Default)).
