[resolved] How to go to next page for blogs (5 posts)

    Hello there!

    On the "blog" page, shouldn't there be more pages to go to listed at the bottom?

    My general settings are at ten per page.

    I have more than that but there are no page numbers to go to page 2 and find the rest. This must be an easy setting.

    Thank you for your help, Mary

  2. Hi Mary,
    The theme that you are using must not have implemented pagination. To implement pagination you would use the paginate_links() function and include it where ever you want the pagination to appear. Here is what I would do for your example:

    Step 1: Create a pagination function in your functions.php file so you can reuse it throughout your theme. That would look something like this:

     * Define Pagination Args Array ( Chronological Order )
     * Retrieve paginated link for archive post pages.
     * Technically, the function can be used to create
     * paginated link list for any area.
     * @link http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/paginate_links 	paginate_links()
     * @version  1.0
    function custom_theme_pagination() {
    	global $wp_query; 	// Get the global WPQuery variable
    	$big = 999999999; 
    	$args = array(
    		'base'			=> str_replace( $big, '%#%', esc_url( get_pagenum_link( $big ) ) ),									// Used to reference the url, which will be used to create the paginated links
    		'format'		=> '?page=%#%', 							// Used for Pagination structure
    		'total'			=> $wp_query->max_num_pages,				// The total amount of pages
    		'current'		=> (get_query_var('paged') ? get_query_var('paged') : 1), 										// The current page number
    		'show_all' 		=> false,
    		'end_size'		=> 2,										// If set to true, then it will show all of the pages instead of a short list of the pages near the current page
    		'mid_size'		=> 2,
    		'prev_next'		=> true,
    		'prev_text'		=> __( '« Newer', 'theme-translate' ),
    		'next_text'		=> __( 'Older »', 'theme-translate' ),
    		'type'			=> 'list',
    		'add_args'		=> false,
    		'add_fragment'	=> ''
    	<div class="">
    		<?php echo paginate_links( $args ); ?>

    Step 2: Call the custom_theme_pagination(); function whereever you want it to appear in your archive.php or other blog templates.

    Hope that helps

    I'd suggest asking on the Weaver Theme's dedicated forum here:


    The developer has excellent support there.

    Thank you. I thought I was on the "theme" forum.

    Changing files is too complicated for me.
    I am sure it is just a check box somewhere in the customization.
    Thanks so much for your reply!

    Hello to all of you. I thank you for trying but I finally did figure it out.
    This is weaver 2. I clicked "hide bottom links" in the post navigation.
    It was just a click! Weaver is so customizable, I got lost.

    Thank you all for your support. It means a lot!
