    (@pq)


    This page: http://amagents.staging.libertyconcepts.com/our-stories/ uses a query that displays 15 custom posts to desktop devices, 6 posts to tablets, and 3 posts to phones. The pagination cannot find /page/3/ and greater (returns a 404). There are currently 18 posts, so for now this error can only be seen on handhelds; but in my local environment, if I set the numposts to a number that always requires more than 2 pages, it breaks on desktop as well.

    The post number is set through a var like this (using mobble plugin to make additional device-sniffing available):

    $numposts = 0;
    if(!is_handheld()) {
    	$numposts = 15;
    	} elseif(is_handheld() && !is_tablet()) {
    		$numposts = 3;
    	} else {
    		$numposts = 6;
    }
    $story_query = new WP_Query( array (
    	'order' => 'ASC',
    	'orderby' => 'title',
    	'paged' => $paged,
    	'post_type' => 'cwa_stories',
    	'post_status' => 'publish',
    	'posts_per_page' => $numposts,
    	)
    );
    
    if ($story_query->have_posts()) : $c = 0; $post = $posts[0];
    while ( $story_query->have_posts() ) : $c++;
    $story_query->the_post();

    and pagenavi is called with this:
    wp_pagenavi(array('query'=>$story_query));

    Any ideas?

  • I should add that I have set the $paged var before the wp_query:
    $paged = ( get_query_var( 'paged' ) ) ? get_query_var( 'paged' ) : 1;

    Found the answer here: http://wp.tutsplus.com/tutorials/custom-post-type-pagination-chaining-method/

    I moved $numposts definition from archive-cwa_stories.php to functions.php and removed the ‘posts_per_page’ element from the $story_query. Then I created a new page-cwa_stories.php following the instructions on wptuts.

    So the whole solution:

    1. Add to functions.php:

    // set number of posts to 15 on Our Stories page and enable pagination
    function stories_posts_per_page( $query ) {
    	$numposts = '';
    	if(!is_handheld()) {
    		$numposts = 15;
    	} elseif(is_handheld() && !is_tablet()) {
    		$numposts = 2;
    	} else {
    	$numposts = 6;
    }
    if ( $query->query_vars['post_type'] == 'cwa_stories' ) $query->query_vars['posts_per_page'] = $numposts;
    	return $query;
    }
    if ( !is_admin() ) add_filter( 'pre_get_posts', 'stories_posts_per_page' );

    2. Update custom post query on archive-cwa_posts.php:

    $story_query = new WP_Query( array (
    	'order' => 'ASC',
    	'orderby' => 'title',
    	'paged' => $paged,
    	'post_type' => 'cwa_stories',
    	'post_status' => 'publish',
    	)
    );
    if ($story_query->have_posts()) : while ( $story_query->have_posts() ) :  $story_query->the_post();

    3. Create page-cwa_stories.php with only this content:

    /* Template Name: Our Stories */
    
    $paged = 1;
    if ( get_query_var('paged') ) $paged = get_query_var('paged');
    if ( get_query_var('page') ) $paged = get_query_var('page');
    
    query_posts( '&post_type=cwa_stories&paged=' . $paged );
    
    require_once( 'archive-cwa_stories.php' );

    4. Set this as the template for /our-stories page.

    Pagination works! Shout out to Justin Carroll!

    Hi there, i’m having a similar problem here, however with the default post type.

    I don’t think this fix will work as it is effecting the way that custom post types are being displayed. Anyone have any other suggestions?
