I'm currently running a wp_query like this:
<?php $the_query = new WP_Query( array( 'post_type' => 'photos', 'posts_per_page' => '2', 'post__not_in' => array(3), 'paged' => $paged ) ); ?> <?php while ( $the_query->have_posts() ) : $the_query->the_post(); ?> <?php the_title(); ?> <?php endwhile; ?>
I then have some pagination at the bottom as such:
<?php next_posts_link(); ?> <?php previous_posts_link(); ?>
Say I have 11 posts that the query would return but one of them has the id of '3'. This means that I have 10 total posts and should return a number of 'next' links. For whatever reason at the end of those pages, there will be a 'next' link that links to a page that is blank.
I believe this empty page is the post I'm attempting to exclude with 'post__not_in'.
How can I exclude posts from my wp_query and still have accurate pagination?
