Hi everyone. This one is baffling me as I have used this same code on another blog and had success. Here is the issue: I am building a blog within another blog. I have installed Category Template Inheritor to do this. I have also set up a template file called "blog" and am calling two custom queries. The problem lies with the paging. I have set it up as instructed here: http://codex.wordpress.org/The_Loop and here: http://codex.wordpress.org/Template_Tags/query_posts.
Paging however, will not go, no matter what variation I am working with. Here is a synopsis of the code in question from here(http://wp.corpedia.com/blog):
<?php /* Template Name: Blog */ ?> <?php get_header(); ?> <?php $my_query = new WP_Query('cat=10&showposts=3'); while ($my_query->have_posts()) : $my_query->the_post(); $do_not_duplicate = $post->ID; ?> <?php endwhile; ?> <?php $page = (get_query_var('paged')) ? get_query_var('paged') : 1; query_posts("cat=8&showposts=20&paged=$page"); if ( have_posts() ) : while ( have_posts() ) : the_post(); if( $post->ID == $do_not_duplicate ) continue; update_post_caches($posts); ?> <div class="post" id="post-<?php the_ID(); ?>"> <h2><a href="<?php the_permalink() ?>" rel="bookmark" border="0" title="Permanent Link to <?php the_title(); ?>"><?php the_title(); ?></a></h2> <?php the_excerpt(); ?> </div> <?php endwhile; ?> <?php else : ?> <div class="post"> <h2 class="center">Not Found</h2> <div class="entry"> <p>Sorry, but you are looking for something that isn't here.</p> </div> </div> <?php endif; ?> <?php get_footer(); ?>
