Pagination and Loop for Custom Post Type (4 posts)

    I'm currently using Magic Fields2 to use Custom Post Types, WPML for multilingual and few others which are not related to my problem.

    I would like to render posts on the blog page, with 8 post per page (currently, I use 1 to do tests).

    I had some fields to the original post type and so I now have to use it as a custom post type.

    I've got some difficulties to do an effective pagination which lead to something else to a 404 page.

    I've read many supports on this subject, as post-1 and post-2 and few others but I can't find the solution.

    Here is my code currently, but It doesn't stop moving to find a solution.

    My page where this code is written is called "blog" and the origin post type is called "post".


    $paged = (get_query_var('paged')) ? get_query_var('paged') : 1;
    $wp_query = new WP_Query();
    $wp_query->query('post_type=post&posts_per_page=1'.'&paged=' . $paged);
    if ($wp_query->have_posts()) :
    while ($wp_query->have_posts()) : $wp_query->the_post();
    <?php endwhile; ?>
        <div class="nav_post"><?php previous_posts_link("&laquo; Précédants") ?></div>
        <div class="nav_post"><?php next_posts_link("Suivants &raquo;") ?></div>
    <?php endif; ?>

    Does someone would help me to figure out how to implement a good pagination (numbers/previous-next) ?
    And after this first step, how to setup this page/2/ without to go on a 404 page ?

    Both of these links should help you build a Custom Post Type Page Template with Pagination.

    Thanks to you and the links you gave me, I now have a pagination.

    But it's a little more complicated :

    I'm on my Blog page (which is display by index.php)
    2 articles are printed (post_per_page 2 for the example)
    The pagination is ok with 2 pages (3 articles total).

    My problem is when I try to go on the page 2, I've got a 404 error.

    I already saw this problem in other posts when the custom post type is called blog and the page is called blog. This is not my case.
    I use "Blog" as page.
    I use the original WordPress Posts as articles (where I added two fields thanks to Magic Fields 2).

    Do you have any idea of what it could be ?

    Some news :

    Reminder : I can not reach the page 2 of my Blog

    My previous configuration :
    Permalink settings : - Postname : /%postname%/
    Reading Settings : static page : Post Page - Blog

    The only configuration "working" :
    Permalink settings : - Default : ?p=123
    Reading Settings : static page : Post Page - Select (none)

    I can reach the second page of my posts using : ?page_id=23&paged=2
    but I really don't want to use the Permalink Default setting

    Does someone has an idea of what is going on ?
