    I am trying to use WP-PageNavi, but I cannot locate the calls for next_posts_link() and previous_posts_link() . Where would these be located?

    Hi Dager,

    these are located in the albinomouse_content_nav function in inc > template-tags.php.


    The code is different from the default wordpress. How would I go about integrating the two codes below to get WP-PageNavi to work in the template-tags.php?

    <?php wp_pagenavi(); ?> or
    <?php wp_pagenavi( array( ‘type’ => ‘multipart’ ) ); ?>

    Thanks for your help.

    Correct me if I’m wrong but I believe I got it. Locate the lines of codes below and delete the ones in bold. Replace “get_next_posts_link” with “wp_pagenavi”

    <?php if ( get_next_posts_link() ) : ?>
    <li class=”older-posts”><?php next_posts_link( ‘← ‘ . __( ‘Older posts’, ‘albinomouse’ )); ?>
    <?php endif; ?>

    <?php if ( get_previous_posts_link() ) : ?>
    <li class=”newer-posts”><?php previous_posts_link( __( ‘Newer posts’, ‘albinomouse’) . ‘ →</span>’ ); ?>
    <?php endif; ?>

    You need to delete the first part as well.

    Exchange line 43-49
    with <?php wp_pagenavi(); ?>

    However, I recommend you to use a child theme. The next update will come and your changes will be overwritten otherwise.

    Awesome, thank you for the help!

    I looked into creating a child theme. I got the style.css set up, but how would I go about getting the child theme to work so that I can modify the template-tags.php as part of the child theme?

    1. Create an empty php file and call it functions.php
    2. Copy the function albinomouse_content_nav() from line 13-56
    3. Customize the function how you like it

    The parent functions.php will be loaded after the child functions.php. However, it wont be overwritten because of the condition in line 9.
