[resolved] Can you list posts in a category on multiple pages (7 posts)

    If I have 50 posts in a category I can go to the admin tools and set it to display "Show at most 50 posts" that way they all come up on the page. Instead, I would like 10 posts to show up on a total of 5 pages.

    For example, a search engine page may have 100 results but only 10 on a page with "Next" and "Previous" links so you can go through all 100.

    Can this be done natively in WordPress? If not, do you know of any pluggins? I have tried to search this forum and google but can't find the corect word choice to get an accurate search. Thanks in advance!

    This pluggin seems to do what I want it to, but I am having some problems with it. If you have used it, maybe you can help me. On http://www.johnmag4u.com/blog/ click either of the months July or August. You will see that 2 posts show up (this is how I have the plugin set). But instead of there being a next button, it shows a previous button!? Really confusing. Also, on the authors site, there were page numbers (this is what I originally wanted). Any ideas? Thanks Again!

    What is confusing? Since posts are listed in chronological order: newest on the top - everything written BEFORE > is previous "in time".

    I don't understand which authors and what page numbers are you talking about.

    This is the authors blog:
    http://mattread.com/blog

    His home page shows page numbers at the bottom and it starts at page 1. I was wondering how this is implemented.

    That's probably another plugin.
    Maybe pagenavi from here...?

    I got it to work by using a combination of both plugins you suggested. It works perfectly now. I also commented out the Previous and Next links so it looks better. Thanks for everything.
