Support » Fixing WordPress » No header in the single posts page

  • Hello everyone! First of all sorry for my english…I tried to have an answer from Italian forum, but they didn’t help me…so here I am!

    I have two big problems, and I need an answer to resolve them…

    I moved the loop on a static page, instead of keeping it on the homepage as all blogs ( ). At the end of the page I put this piece of code:

    <div class="navigation">
    <div class="alignleft"><?php posts_nav_link('', '', '&laquo; Previous Entries') ?></div>
    <div class="alignright"><?php posts_nav_link('', 'Next Entries &raquo;', '') ?></div>

    Clicking on the “previous entries” link on the bottom of the page I get a 404 error page, instead of previous posts, as should be (without header, too). Where the old posts have gone? Is there something wrong into the code above?

    I recently switched my blog from Windows Hosting to Linux Hosting (on Apache server), and I activated permalinks. When I try to see if permalinks work, clicking on a post permalink I see the single post page without any header!
    The same result appears if I try some search, or if I browse into my archives or categories, but not with static pages or with the homepage. If I switch back to non-permalink mode, the header comes back.
    Checking my “single.php” page (and “archives.php” or “search.php”, too) I can’t see something strange, because I think that <?php get_header(); ?> function is at the right place…at the very top of the code.

    I hope someone could help me someway, and in the meanwhile I thank you all…

  • If you make that first page a short one I might take a look at it. I hate 10 km long pages (and to look at their code), sorry. Actually even for other visitors it must be annoying: I am on fast cable connection and it takes a long-long time to get the whole page. Very much not userfriendly 🙁

    Ok…I’ll shorten the code of my “news” page…here it is:

    Template Name: News

    <?php get_header(); ?>
    <div id="wrapper">

    <div id="content" class="narrowcolumn">

    ——> TITLE <——

    <div id="listenews">
    ——> ARCHIVES <——
    ——> CATEGORIES <——

    <?php query_posts('posts_per_page=20'); ?>

    ——> THE LOOP (Start) <——

    <div class="navigation">
    <div class="alignleft"><?php posts_nav_link('', '', '&laquo; Articoli Precedenti') ?></div>
    <div class="alignright"><?php posts_nav_link('', 'Articoli Successivi &raquo;', '') ?></div>


    ——> THE LOOP (End) <——

    <?php get_sidebar(); ?>
    <?php get_footer(); ?>

    Actually I was saying to make the web page shorter… = to not display a zillion posts!

    Problem numero uno. The next/previous will not work if you are not using the index for the frontpage.

    2. I don’t know, it may be related to No.1.

    Uh….sorry….I thought you would like to see the code…misunderstanding 🙂

    So….for No.2, there’s no escaping? 🙁
    I don’t think that it’s related to No.1, because the problem appears in other pages…

    I am just curious: if you use the normal index.php instead of your notizie Page – does the problem No2 still exist?

    I tried to move again The Loop in the normal index.php page, but the problem still exists, both in the single posts and in the archives or search pages.

    I fixed problem no. 2

    It seems it was enough just to use an absolute URL for the header image, instead of a relative one…

    The strangeness of this thing is that with the error I had, I should not have seen the header nowhere, instead of seeing it only in some page…

    That’s not entirely true.
    If you have a relative path that might work from the main page (as you calculated from there, eg. images/mypic for, but when you move to another page, let’s say:
    it will look for the image at

    That’s why you didn’t see it.
