Support » Fixing WordPress » Add a older posts/entires button on index page
2 years, 11 months ago
I looked around the forums and unfortunately I could not find anything that actually solved my problem.
Apparently the theme I am using does not have a built in button for showing older posts. This is a bit problematic since I now have more posts than I want to show on the index page.
I would like to add a “older posts” button to my WordPress index page. I am using the Hemingway theme.
If I understood it correctly i need to add
<?php next_posts_link(‘Older Posts’); ?>
<?php previous_posts_link(‘Newer Posts’); ?>
somewhere in my index.php
I dont have any knowledge of php editing so this is a bit tricky for me.
My index.php currently looks like this
It would be great if someone could make a copy and insert the code I need to put it. It would really help.
I changed the number of posts allowed in the reading tab in settings from 10 to 15 as temporary solution.
I really hope someone knows what to do! I really appreciate all the help i can get.
Thank you all in advance.
that posted template already has the code for ‘older posts/newer posts’ – if this is not showing on your site, there might be a different rason.
can you provide a live link to your site, with the number of ‘posts per page’ set to 5 or lower so there should be a pagination…
what theme are you using?
actually i just managed to solve it myself. It was just a mistake from my side. I had the reading setting set too 15 all the time. Embarrassing…
Anyways, thanks for your reply 🙂
