  • This plugin works beautifully on every page except for the search results page. For example, when I search for the keyword “lamp,” it indicates there are two pages of search results. When I click on page 2, it takes me to page 2 of my blog, not page 2 of the search results. Has anyone figured out how to fix this?

  • I noticed this too. WP page navi works great on index pages and archive pages. But doesn’t show up on search (despite all my attempts to make it do so).

    @mewing22: Works fine for me.

    @alexlakes: you have to add the wp_pagenavi() call in your search.php theme file.

    Works great. Thanks Scribu!

    Hey quick question. Does WP-PageNavi automatically add a trailing slash to the url of first page results? (e.g. If you are viewing page 2, 3, or whatever and click to view page 1, is it set to automatically add a trailing slash like so: /recipes/ )

    I’m trying to standardize on not using a trailing slash and can’t seem to figure out if it’s WP-PageNavi or my recipe plugin doing this.

    The trailings slash is added depending on wether you have one in your permalinks structure. See WP Admin -> Settings -> Permalinks.

    @scribu: So, you don’t know how or why, it just works for you. Good for you. Not helpful for me.

    @mewing22, You could try posting your question on and be specific about what theme your using. It’s worked for me in the past.

    @scribu, Thanks for the response. My permalink structure is /%postname% so this works as expected on most pages (/recipes/page/2, /recipes/page/3, etc). But the link to the first page still uses a trailing slash (/recipes/).

    Is it possible that wppagenavi adds a trailing slash to the first page expecting it to be the domain root But since this is an index for a custom post type at /recipes, wppagenavi is still treating this like a domain root and adds a trailing slash for that reason?

    (I’m just trying to standardize on one version for SEO reasons, /recipes.)

    @alexlakes I’ll try that. Thanks!

    You can easily solve it by installing this plugin

    This will create a permalink for searches, so yoururl/?s=someword will becomeyoururl/search/someword and page 2 yoururl/search/someword/page/2
