So far this is the code I have in my index.php file:
<?php // Custom code to offset posts and setup pagination $page = get_query_var( 'paged' ) ? get_query_var( 'paged' ) : 1; $ppp = get_option( 'posts_per_page' ); if ( $page == 1 ) $offset = 6; else $offset = 6 + ( $page - 1 ) * $ppp; $args = array( 'posts_per_page' => $ppp, 'offset' => $offset, ); $offset_query = new WP_Query ( $args ); ?>
At this point everything works fine except that there is an extra page with no posts on the site. Apparently this occurs because found_posts doesn't account for offset and so found_posts thinks there are more posts and adds an extra page.
So how would I deduct the offset from the found_posts value so that the extra page doesn't occur. Or, how would I just get rid of the extra page that is showing up.
