I want to use a pagination function with a custom posts query (to get posts from a specific category). My pagination function gets the query from
So in the following code I have assigned the original $wp_query to a temporary variable and after the query I assigned back.
Finally I used
wp_reset_query() function to reset the query.
So my question is that does it make any sense to store the original
$wp_query first and then assign it back and then reset the query? If we are resetting the query, then isn't it unnecessary?
I'm asking the question because I did read about this approach in an article, and I am not sure about this.
$temp_query = $wp_query; //#1. store original wp_query $args = array( 'cat' => 15, 'paged' => $paged ); $wp_query = new WP_Query( $args ); while ( $wp_query -> have_posts() ) : $wp_query -> the_post(); endwhile; my_pagination(); //call function $wp_query = $temp_query; //#2. assign back original wp_query wp_reset_query(); //#3. reset query
