  • Hello,

    I have been looking for a plug-in paginator for my blog for a few months now. I have installed several different paginators and either they do not do what I thought they were going to do or I cannot seem to get them to work. I have been researching it and had read the forum for a few hours yesterday but only ended up even more frustrated than I had started out.

    I have made 35 posts on my blog in the last few months and am going to start making one or 2 posts every day so I will end up with a lot of posts for readers to flip through. I installed the WP-PageNavi plug-in and got the information and download for this plug-in here:

    I love the way this plug-in looks at the bottom of this page and would love to have it like that on my blog. You can check it out here and it is at the bottom of the page and basically lists pages 1 through 25 (it looks nice and is functional here):

    For some reason, on my blog it will only show the last post but the paginator has it listed as page 1 of 2 and has the boxes for page 1 and page 2 but it does not go up to my last (or first) post. I would like the plug-in to work for all of my posts so that my readers can flip through the posts easily as they are reading. A lot of times my readers do not read my blog for a week or 2 and it is necessary for them to flip back through my posts to catch up on what is going on in the industry and without a paginator, I think it makes it rough on them or is a turn off.

    If you’d like to see how my blog is displaying the paginator plug-in, my blog is located here:

    I am thinking that there must be something simple that I must change in the WordPress code and am hoping that someone here can let me know what I need to change. Otherwise, if you know of a paginator plug-in that will work well, I am open to suggestions. Frankly, I am surprised that this problem hasn’t surfaced more often than it has so far.

    Thanks in advance for the help. It is very much appreciated!

    Best Regards,

  • this is usually not a problem with the pagination plugin; but with some custom query in the template or within a plugin.

    what is the code of your front page template (index.php ?)
    (please paste the code into a and post the link to it here)

    you can see, for instance, that the paginaton plugin works fine on archive pages.

    Hello alchymyth:

    Thank you for your response. I pasted the index.php at the site you requested and I believe the link is this:

    After I made this post, I did some more searching on another site and found a suggestion to go to Settings and then to Reading and then try changing the number in Blog Pages to Show at Most to 21 or 7. When I changed it to 7, the plug-in started to show 6 pages but they are all duplicate or the same post. Before it just displayed posts number 1 and 2.

    I looked at the archive pages and could not see that they were displaying correctly but maybe I am missing something or did not understand what you meant. If I go to HYIP Reviews or any of the other categories, it seems to work the same way as it does on the last post or main post.

    Thanks again for your help, I really appreciate it. I have been trying to get this thing to work for months now and it is probably something simple but something I do not see or understand. If the link above does not work, let me know and I will find another link or way to display the page to you at

    Best Regards,


    change in this section (shown after changes):

    <?php global $query_string; $wp_query = new WP_Query($query_string .'&showposts=1');
    if ($wp_query->have_posts()) :
      while ($wp_query->have_posts()) : $wp_query->the_post();
      $do_not_duplicate = $post->ID;

    here is the full template (with all the commented code removed)

    Hello alchymyth:

    Thank you for replying back to me. I haven’t tried your suggestion yet, but I am going to in the next couple days and then I will let you know if it worked. I just wanted to let you know that I appreciated your help. You seem to be a member that is always trying to help someone with their WordPress blog and I bet you rescue a lot of people.

    I hope that one day I can end up with enough knowledge to be of help to other forum members and I’m sure I probably will as I plan to stick around for the long haul. Thanks again!

    Best Regards,
