Support » Fixing WordPress » post alignment & pagination issues with first template

  • *Warning*
    I am a noob and beginning to start develop wordpress (CMS-based) websites from scratch.

    problem site:

    1st Problem: Okay, so the grey left column containing the blog post previews is having alignment issues with it’s text and I’m not quite sure what is causing the misalignment. I get no errors in the firebug error console.

    2nd Problem: As per the Warning mentioned above, I am attempting to add pagination and have found at least 5 different sources/tutorials with some differences between the php code for paginating properly. Here’s what I settled with:

    <div class="pagination">
    		    <?php global $wp_query;
    				$big = 999999999; // need an unlikely integer
    				echo paginate_links( array(
    					'base' => str_replace( $big, '%#%', get_pagenum_link( $big ) ),
    					'format' => '?paged=%#%',
    					'current' => max( 1, get_query_var('paged') ),
    					'total' => $wp_query->max_num_pages
    				) );
    		</div><!-- End Pagination -->

    my question for the pagination is this; how can I get rid of the texted-based “Previous/Next” and replace it with « / $raquo; along with actually showing both buttons instead of just the “next” button?
