I'm in a bit of a bind. I have to create some pagination for the blog, but I believe I'm running into the bug described here (http://wordpress.org/support/topic/archives-not-showing-nextprev-windows-only-crazy?replies=5), and I don't have authorization to fiddle with the server's php.ini file.
So, I need to find a way to create pagination for the blog without having max_num_pages. Is that possible? I don't want to re-engineer the blog loop if I don't have to.
