[Resolved] Pagination for Custom Post Types on Home Page

  • Hi.

    I use Custom Post Type to list projects on Home page.
    My template home page loop is :

    [Code moderated as per the Forum Rules. Please use the pastebin]

    I use Custom Post Type UI plugin to register the custom post type.
    Permalinks are set like this : /archives/%post_id%

    The “older projects” link correcly displays on home page but links to nothing :
    http://mywebsite/page/2

    I know that It should be http://mywebsite/my_home_page_slug/page/2 to work properly but I don’t know how to set this up on home page.

    Any help would be great.
    Thanks.

  • My template home page loop is here :

    Hi

    I have no solutions yet.

    I explain again with another precisions:

    I use Custom Post Type to list projects.
    I use “Custom Post Type UI” plugin to register the custom post type.
    Permalinks are set like this : /archives/%post_id%
    I set in wordpress a “Portfolio” page as the front page and another page for the Blog.
    So the Portfolio page is the front_page and the Blog page is the home. (I had confirmed this by checking with is_home(); and is_front_page(); conditional tags.

    So my template loop is fine, I test it on another page and it works fine but it does not work on the front page for the reason I exposed on first post.

    The “older entries” link correctly displays on my Portfolio front page but links to nothing :
    http://mywebsite/page/2

    The reason is that It should be http://mywebsite/my_front_page_slug/page/2 to work properly, but the slug of the front_page does not appear.

    So to solve this issue, I need a way to put the slug of the static front_page (here “portfolio”) to the link generated by next_posts_link(); template tag only on this specific page.

    Hope that makes sense.

    Thanks.

    Found the fix here.
    It works great for me.

    so just add this as paged param of your loop :

    if ( get_query_var('paged') ) {
        $paged = get_query_var('paged');
    } else if ( get_query_var('page') ) {
        $paged = get_query_var('page');
    } else {
        $paged = 1;
    }
    query_posts( array( 'post_type' => 'post', 'paged' => $paged ) );
