Pagination with multiple loops in single.php using custom permalink structure (5 posts)

    Hey everybody,

    I've tried nearly every recommended solution that I found in this forum but none of those fixed my problem. I got 2 loops in a single.php...
    the first loop is a custom loop that displays all articles with certain meta key value. The second loop is the loop for the requested single article.

    Now I want pagination to work for the first loop. This is what the important part looks like:

    $paged = (get_query_var('paged'));

    Everything works fine except pagination and only if I'm using a custom permalink structure. With default permalink structure turned on even pagination worsk (id=X&paged=X).

    Tryin to access domain.tld/archives/676/page/2 redirects me to domain.tld/archives/676/

    But as I said using default permalink structure "domain.tld/?p=676&paged=2" just works like a charm displaying the right posts.

    Any ideas?

    This one drives me crazy! Thanks in advance!

    I'm not even sure how feasible this is. single.php is meant to display a single post. Now, that post itself could be paginated using <!--nextpage-->, but that's a little off-topic.

    My question is: Where is it supposed to paginate to? Anything branching off a single-post permalink should be a child of that particular single post (i.e. attachments).

    Thanks for ur reply.

    I know that single.php is meant to display a single post but I also know what wordpress is capable of. I wasn't really sure if this will work and I just gave it a try. Surprisingly pagination WORKS with default permalink structure on single.php with a custom query (e.g. domain.tld?id=1&paged=2) But it does not work with custom permalink structure. We only have to figure out why.

    The requested post is beeing displayed by single.php. After this single post I'm goin to display all posts of a certain category which I want to be paginated.



    Single Post
    Post of certain category
    Post of certain category
    Post of certain category


    If there is no reasonable chance to achieve this by using the pagination funcionality of wordpress I'll try a custom pagination using ajax.

    Hope I made it clear

    Thanks so far
