[resolved] Not possible to navigate to older blog posts (6 posts)

    We've been using Creativix for a while now and it works great. I've found one bug/missing feature however: visitors can't navigate to older blog posts!

    When you go the the blog page (e.g. http://www.boardkings.com/blog) you will see a summary list of blog posts (in this case 10). My question is: how can I see older blog posts? I would expect a button at the bottom of the page saying something like 'older posts' or 'next page'. None of that. Am I missing something?

    How can I activate/add such a button? Or even better; can we get an update of the Creativix theme that addresses this issue (if necessary)?

    Is there anyone who can push me in the right direction? Would be much appreciated.

    Assuming you're using a blog page and the blog template, you can edit tpl_blog.php

    Here's one way to do it. Hopefully it points you in the right direction. Just before the last </div> in the file, put the following:

    <a href="#"><?php next_posts_link('&larr;Older') ?></a>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;<a href="#"><?php previous_posts_link('Newer&rarr;') ?></a>

    Boardkings.com is a lovely site, good work on the design. I have a similar problem with displaying older blogs, I want to show Page 1, Page 2 Page 3 etc rather than just Older and Newer, any ideas on how I can do this?

    Also, any idea on how to display older blogs within categories? Appreciate your help. Thank you.
