Older/Newer Posts link not working

  • Just discovered this error on my blog. At the bottom of the homepage, there’s an “older post” link. This link directs me to mysite/wordpress/page/2/, but it shows me the exact same posts as the homepage.

    I’ve trolled the forums here with no avail.

    Any suggestions here?

    Let me know if you need to see index.php.

    Thanks in advance!

    Does your theme’s index.php template file use a custom query? If so, it may need to be modified slightly.

    I believe it does:

    <?php if ($counter%2 == 0 AND $small == TRUE ) { echo ‘<div style=”clear:both;”></div>’; } ?>

    <?php endwhile; ?>
    <?php endif; ?>

    <div class=”more_entries”>
    <?php if (function_exists(‘wp_pagenavi’)) wp_pagenavi(); else { ?>
    <div class=”fl”><?php previous_posts_link(__(‘« Newer Entries ‘,woothemes)) ?></div>

    <div style=”float: right;”>
    <?php next_posts_link(__(‘ Older Entries »’,woothemes)) ?></div>

    Is that helpful? Thanks in advance!

    Sorry – no. That’s at the bottom of the Loop. A custom query would be just before the Loop.

    Ah, correct. This is what’s before the loop (at least what I think is necessary):


    $home_content = get_option(‘woo_home_content’);
    $home_boxes = get_option(‘woo_home_boxes’);

    if (have_posts()) :

    $full = FALSE;

    $width = get_option(‘woo_full_thumb_width’);
    $height = get_option(‘woo_full_thumb_height’);

    if( $home_boxes == ‘On’) { $small = TRUE; }
    elseif ($home_boxes == ‘Off’) { $full = TRUE; }
    else { $large_posts = intval($home_boxes); }

    $counter = 0;
    while (have_posts()) : the_post();
    $post_class = ‘full’;
    if( ($counter > $large_posts OR $small == TRUE) AND $full == FALSE)
    $width = get_option(‘woo_boxed_thumb_width’);
    $height = get_option(‘woo_boxed_thumb_height’);
    if( $small == FALSE ) $counter = 1;
    $small = true;
    if ($counter%2 == 0 ) { $post_class = ‘fr’; }
    else { $post_class = ‘fl’; }

    <div class=”post-outer post <?php echo $post_class; ?>”>

    <div class=”post-inner post-alt”>

    <?php woo_get_image(‘image’,$width,$height); ?>

    <p class=”category-head cufon”><?php the_category(‘, ‘) ?></p>
    <h2><?php the_title(); ?>” href=”<?php the_permalink() ?>” rel=”bookmark”><?php the_title(); ?></h2>
    <p class=”title-meta”><span class=”comments-head”><?php comments_popup_link(__(‘0 Comments’,woothemes), __(‘1 Comment’,woothemes), __(‘% Comments’,woothemes)); ?></span> <span class=”date”><?php the_time(‘d F Y’); ?></span></p>

    <?php if ($home_content == ‘false’) { ?>
    <p><?php echo strip_tags(get_the_excerpt(), ‘‘); ?></p>
    <?php the_title(); ?>” href=”<?php the_permalink() ?>”><?php _e(‘Want More?’,woothemes); ?>
    <?php } else { ?>
    <?php the_content(__(‘Want More?’,woothemes)); ?>
    <?php } ?>


    Let me know if this is what you need. Thank you so much!

    I have the same problem on my blog: http://emisto.net with the pagenavi. Can somebody help me?
