Support » Fixing WordPress » Excluding a Category using wp_query – with working page navigation

  • I was having problems with the page navigation(empty pages or staying on the first page w/excluded categories) so i decided to use this wp_query code for my blog loop which is NOT on the homepage:

    <?php twentyeleven_content_nav( 'nav-above' );
         <?php /* Start the Loop */ ?>
    
    <?php //query_posts('paged='.$paged);
    	$temp = $wp_query;
    	$wp_query= null;
       	$wp_query = new WP_Query();
            $wp_query->query('showposts=5'.'paged='.$paged); ?>
    
    <?php $recentPosts = new WP_Query();
          $recentPosts->query('showposts=5'.'&paged='.$paged) ?>
    <?php while ($recentPosts->have_posts()) : $recentPosts->the_post(); ?>
    
    <?php get_template_part( 'content', get_post_format() ); ?>
    	<?php endwhile; ?>
            <?php $wp_query = null; $wp_query = $temp;?>
    
    <?php twentyeleven_content_nav( 'nav-below' ); ?>

    Page Navigation is working,
    but now I’m having problems excluding a category.
    Any code I found with an excluded category messed up the pave nav.
    I want to exclude two categories and have a working page navigation, but I continue to go in circles.
