    Hey bigflacpro,

    In the last update, we added the ability to turn pagination on within the shortcode.

    Try adding this to your existing shortcode: paginate='yes'

    We added the following to the documentation on the Installation page:

    [ic_add_posts paginate='yes'] – use pagination links (off by default)

    That should do it. Let us know if you get stuck.

    Cheers,
    Eric

    Thank you!!

    When I can the above code to enable pagination, Posts from unassociated categories show above the next and previous buttons show.

    Not sure what you mean by this. I think you’re saying that if you use the shortcode [ic_add_posts paginate='yes'] that you’re seeing all posts, even those without a category. If that’s the case, that’s expected because the above shortcode doesn’t target by category.

    If I’m misunderstanding, would you be kind enough to provide a link and/or screenshot with a little more explanation for an old, slow guy like me? 🙂

    Okay. Makes sense. I’ll temporarily add the code so you can see the error..

    When I add the code it not only adds the pagination (next/previous) it also adds the last ten posts with it. Is there any way I can just add the (next/previous) without the additional posts.

    The above link shld only show the top ten posts not the bottom ten with it. The shortcode adds the bottom ten.

    If you’re using this shortcode: [ic_add_posts paginate='yes'] then you’ll automatically get posts along with the navigation.

    By default, WP shows 10 posts/page, so you’d see ten posts, then the pagination, unless you either:

    • Change the default # posts under Setting/Reading, or
    • Limit the number of posts by adding to the shortcode (ex. [ic_add_posts showposts='5' paginate='yes'])

    Based on your description, I’m guessing that if you don’t use the shortcode, some posts display anyway, right? Like ten?

    If that’s the case, then I may be misunderstanding what you’re going for – it almost sounds like you’re looking for navigation without adding posts. Am I mistaken?

    I get it now. I just needed to add the paginate=’yes’ part into my shortcode for the category per page code. Thx
