Support » Fixing WordPress » Pagination in a template page?

  • I created a template as follows:

    <?php
    /*
    Template Name: Test
    */
    ?>
    <?php get_header(); ?>
    <?php $my_query = new WP_Query('category_name=Post&paged='.$q['paged']); ?>
    <?php while ($my_query->have_posts()) : $my_query->the_post(); ?>
    <h5><a href="<?php the_permalink()?>" class="posttitle"><?php the_title(); ?></a></span></h5>
    By <?php the_author()?>, on <?php the_time('M jS, y')?>
    <?php the_excerpt(); ?>
    <a>">Continue reading...</a>
    <?php endwhile; ?>
    <?php get_nav_link(7) ?>
    <?php get_sidebar(); ?>
    <?php get_footer(); ?>

    I create a custom page based on this template and want that a limited number of posts appear on this page and pagination links appear at bottom.

    The page works fine when I call the page as http://localhost/wordpress/?page_id=77&paged= or http://localhost/wordpress/?page_id=77&paged=1 but when I pass the value of page as 2 as in http://localhost/wordpress/?page_id=77&paged=2, the index.php page comes into play (though there are more posts in the category ‘Post’).

    Can anyone please help me with what is preventing the pagination?

    PS. get_nav_link() is a customized function based on the posts_nav_link() function and accepts the category code as parameter.

    function get_nav_link($cat, $sep=' — ', $prelabel='� Previous Page', $nxtlabel='Next Page �') {
    global $request, $posts_per_page, $wpdb, $max_num_pages;
    if ( !is_single() ) {
    if ( 'posts' == get_query_var('what_to_show') ) {
    if ( !isset($max_num_pages) ) {
    $numposts = $wpdb->get_var("SELECT COUNT( DISTINCT a.ID ) FROM wp_posts a, wp_post2cat b WHERE a.ID = b.post_id AND b.category_id = $cat");
    $max_num_pages = ceil($numposts / $posts_per_page);

    }
    }
    else {
    $max_num_pages = 999999;
    }

    if ( $max_num_pages > 1 ) {
    previous_posts_link($prelabel);
    echo preg_replace('/&([^#])(?![a-z]{1,8};)/', '&$1', $sep);
    next_posts_link($nxtlabel, $max_page);
    }
    }
    }
