Support » Fixing WordPress » Adding WordPress loop to a static .php file

  • Hello,

    I just added a WordPress loop to a page on a static website.

    The page is located at:

    WordPress is installed at:

    What I need is a next/lest button for pagination. I tried some code I found but it kept giving me a 404 error inside the WordPess site. I don’t want the public to see the WordPress site at all.

    The loop I used is:

    <!-- Start the Loop. -->
     <?php query_posts('showposts=5'); ?>
     <?php if ( have_posts() ) : while ( have_posts() ) : the_post(); ?>
      <div class="post">
     <!-- Display the Title as a link to the Post's permalink. -->
     <div class="title"><?php the_title(); ?></div>
     <!-- Display the Post's Content in a div box. -->
     <div class="entry">
       <?php the_content(); ?>
      <!-- Display the date (November 16th, 2009 format) and a link to other posts by this posts author. -->
    <div class="entry_date"><?php the_time('F jS, Y') ?> by <?php the_author_posts_link() ?></div>
     </div> <!-- closes the first div box -->
     <!-- Stop The Loop (but note the "else:" - see next line). -->
     <?php endwhile; else: ?>
     <!-- The very first "if" tested to see if there were any Posts to -->
     <!-- display.  This "else" part tells what do if there weren't any. -->
     <p>Sorry, no posts matched your criteria.</p>
     <!-- REALLY stop The Loop. -->
     <?php endif; ?>

    Any ideas of how to make this work?
