Support » Fixing WordPress » Previous Posts Link not working on index page

  • Hi,

    I have a standard index page in a custom theme (format copied from twentyeleven), and previous_posts_link (and next_posts_link) isn’t working:

    + Plugins are all disabled
    + Previous_post_link works as expected (link to single post)
    + There’s nothing in the functions.php to affect it
    + I’ve tried regenerating permalinks
    + I’ve switched to Twenty Eleven (works) and back to my custom theme, does not work
    + I’ve tried wp_reset_query

    This is index.php, posts displaying on home page as per the default WP install settings.

    Any ideas of other things to try or ways to diagnose this?

    Thank you,

  • For some reason this works instead:
    <?php posts_nav_link(‘  ‘,’« Previous Posts’,’Next Posts »’); ?>

    No idea why previous_posts_link didn’t work, but this does – I’m marking this as resolved.
