[resolved] How can I create a "Next Page" link in category.php? (3 posts)

    If you use the below code in category.php you will see the titles of your most recent posts in that category. In my Reading Settings I set the posts per page to 3. There are 5 posts in my category, and I can confirm only 3 are shown now, but I do not see any link to get the next page with the rest of the posts in this category. I figured there must be some other tag required, but I cannot find it. I've read the tutorials in the Codex (that's how I built the rest of my file) and I also tried to reverse-engineer some category.php pages from other themes I've downloaded, but I can't find what I need.

    <?php while ( have_posts() ) : the_post(); ?>
    <?php the_title('<h3>', '</h3>'); ?>
    <?php endwhile; ?>

    Would someone please point me in the right direction to make "Next page" and "Previous page" links on my category pages? Thank you!

    example code:

    <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>
