Support » Fixing WordPress » Default Theme 1.6 Kubrik – Navigation Broken in 2.8?

  • Maybe I misunderstand the Default 1.6 theme that ships with WP 2.8.1, but I thought that there is supposed to be some prev/next navigation at the end of the page… ( it sure looks that way in the code)

    If this isn’t the case, stop now and tell me to suck lemons.

    If there is supposed to be pagination navigation, how do I get it back? I don’t use the default theme, but was checking against it as a control to see if previous_posts_link and next_posts_link was working to get the next page of posts…

    I’m thinking that they aren’t working… or am I missing some basic config that I’ve overlooked for years?

    Is there some config on my machine that I’ve dorked up without realizing it?

    We have another site on 2.8.0 that is in the same boat… it is on the same machine so… did i dork it up, or is there a problem with the prev/next navigation?

  • As long as you have enough posts to generate those links, then they should show up. A link to your site would help.

    I’m not using the default theme currently (since it’s a live site) and was only testing it out…

    but it uses the same/similar code to the default.

    I’ll switch the theme for an hour or so you can take a look at it.

    There are about 100 posts on the blog, so there is more than enough….



    Hummm…take a look at item 10 in the video at the following link.

    Basic WordPress Theme Editing for the Non-Techie: Part 1

    Look in index.php in your theme and see if you have the code shown in the video.

    yes I do have it –

    this is from the default (unmodified) kubrik theme (1.6) that ships with wp 2.8.1

    Here’s a copy/paste from my index.php

    <div class="navigation">
    <div class="alignleft"><?php next_posts_link('&laquo; Older Entries') ?></div>
    <div class="alignright"><?php previous_posts_link('Newer Entries &raquo;') ?></div>

    Because the default theme isn’t working (which I was pretty sure had navigation) I want to fix it there first… knowing that the rest of it will just fall into place..


    ps. I still have the default theme up if you want to see it yourself.

    If that code is there I’m not sure why you are not seeing the links. If you look in Settings/Reading do you have a value of 10 or less in “Blog pages shown at most”? Change that to something smaller, 2 or 3 and see if anything changes.

    I set it to 2… and only 2 posts are showing up.

    But still no navigation!!

    Uggghhhh… I always find the doozies.


    OK – I just paid a guy to fix it, and he couldn’t find it… we’re both inclined to think that it is a server config issue.

    What configurations should I be looking at?

    I’ve got
    PHP 5.0.4
    MySQL 4.1.20 and
    Apache 2.0

    Fairly standard… what settings could I be looking for?

    I’ve got debug on apache and logging in PHP –

    No errors are coming through the logs… I’m stumped.
