Support » Fixing WordPress » Navigation Links (Previous/Next ) Disappeared

  • I recently noticed that the pagination for my site ( has disappeared on the home page and all archive/author/category/etc pages. I have tried reinstalling WP, repairing my database, deactivating all plugins, switching themes, emptying all caches, using different computers and browsers, and no matter what none of the pages have the previous/next links at the bottom anymore. There are also no pages in the admin area for posts, so if I want to edit an old post, I have to increase the number of posts displayed since I cannot go past page 1. I’m not sure what happened or how to fix it. Any ideas?

  • kabitzin,

    I see the div where the previous/next used to be. Is the php still showing in the back end?

    I also see

    <div id="nav-below" class="navigation"> </div>

    What php call am I looking for, and how would I see if it was there? I’ve tried different themes and reinstalling WP so could something be stripping it out?

    I have also tried getting my host to increase my memory allocation, but this did not solve the pagination problem either.

    I have another blog that has working previous/next links, so I put both of them in the Twenty Eleven theme and compared the source of the output page.

    Working site:

    Non-working site:

    The main difference between the two is that the working site correctly puts in the previous/next links between the final article and the first sidebar section. However, this area is completely blank on the blog I am trying to fix.

    I don’t think it is a theme issue, since the lack of 1 2 3 4 … 40… 100 navigation posts extends to my dashboard Posts page as well, and no theme should be affecting that. To clarify, even with all plugins deactivated, when I am on my dashboard Posts page, the pagination links are missing. However, there are pagination links on my Plugins, Categories, and Tags dashboard pages.

    Deactivating all my plugins (even through FTP) and clearing my cache have not made a difference, and I’ve re-downloaded WP a number of times. I can’t even tell if it is a problem on my end or the host’s end, so I am not sure what to do next.

    If I go to page 3 (, I can see at the bottom (using firebug) that

    <div class="nav-next"><a href="">Newer posts <span class="meta-nav">ยป</span></a></div>

    is generated in the code, but for some reason it is invisible. Where “Older Posts” should be is blank

    <div class="nav-previous"></div>

    If anyone knows what might be causing this (and even better, how to fix it), I’d greatly appreciate it!

    Gonna check with my host to see if it is similar to this problem/fix.

    Increasing the limit to 60s did not fix the problem =(

    I have this very same problem that seemed to occur some time after I upgraded to WP 3.3.1. Did you ever find a solution to your problem??
