I was wondering if it was possible to use posts_nav_link in a template page that is not standard (i.e index.php, category.php…)
something like this: <?php
$posts = get_posts('numberposts=5');
foreach($posts as $post) :
?> "><?php the_title(); ?> <?php the_excerpt(); ?>
<?php endforeach; ?>
<?php posts_nav_link(' — ', __('« Previous Page'), __('Next Page »')); ?>
I’ve tried this of course but it does not seem to work.
Are there alternatives that cam be used?
Yes, my question regards Page Templates.
I was wondering if anybody knew of a hack or a workaround
that permitted me to have on a Page Template something similar to prev/next seeing that I using a simple foreach loop I can show within that Page a limited number of posts at a time.
I’m one of the many who would like to use WordPress as a light CMS and each time that I try other platforms I come back to WordPress.
I am wondering the prev/next could be possible or if I am going on a dead end street.
The wp_link_pages is a good idea however the problem remains.
I think that it’s because both posts_nav_link and wp_link_pages can only be used within the Loop and the Loop does not work in Page Templates.
So at the moment I think that I will try to resolve the issue hard coding a next link.
Thank you for your ideas.
