Support » Fixing WordPress » Show only a certain number of pages

  • I’m using wordpress for a news/magazine project.
    The problem is that after some time of posting news and articles, the categories have a lot of content inside. So when you see the page number inside news categories you will see a big number of pages, for example 35 pages. So, what I want to do is that force wordpress to show only 10 pages for category so the olders posts are there but to be seen only when searching them or when someone is looking in the archive section.
    Is there any way how I can do this???
    Best Regards
    Thank You

  • So you don’t want a link to the 11th page on the 10th page? And your archive section is based on date?

    You could modify the main query with query_posts in category.php. I’m not exactly sure what parameters you need to use here.

    Or you could hide the link based on the value of the “?p=” parameter. To get the link use get_next_posts_link() only echo this if the part after p= is smaller than 10. This means however that you need to parse the url you get from that function and I don’t have an easy way to do that handy.


    Yes Marvin, I don’t want a link to 11th page on the 10th page.
    My archives are not based on date but Im working on it. Anyway, I can use the calendar widget to show the posts on a specific date, this is easy solved. Beside this I forgot to say, as for the main navigation Im using wp-paginate plugin. Maybe this will help to solve my problem.
    As for hiding the link, I didn’t get it well. Please can you explain it a little better because I’m not very good with coding.
    Thank You

    As I haven’t used this plugin, I can’t really help you with that, both my solutions assumed you’d only use the WordPress pagination.

    Maybe someone familiar with the plugin will answer to your post yesterday where you didn’t ´forgot´ to mention the plugin.

    Hello marv, thnc for the replay.
    I am opened to deactivate the plugin and use the wordpress pagination if I can find a solution. For me is not important the plugin, i just want to give a solution to the problem.
    Thank You

    This might be very easy after all:
    find: next_posts_link( __( '<span class="meta-nav">←</span> Older posts', 'twentyten' ) ) (or something similar in your theme, taken from twentyten loop.php)

    and replace with next_posts_link( __( '<span class="meta-nav">←</span> Older posts', 'twentyten' ), 10 )

    According to this should work. However I haven’t verified it.

    Obviously the previous link works the same way.
