Use on the blog reverse pagination. The question arose. How to make a home page is not the first? Need to break the link Home = First page and make a connection Home = Last page.

Home should be the last. For example on a blog with 20 pages: Opening the site at httр://www.example.com I get to the home page. And this the same page at the address httр://www.example.com/page/1/

I want to do the opposite: httр://www.example.com opens page 20 (httр://www.example.com = httр://www.example.com/page/20/ ).

For example like this http://izismile.com. Home is the last, not the first.

The default order of posts is date descending.

To reverse it for home page you could hook into pre_get_posts and for is_home() query set order parameter to ASC.

Note that that pages would still go from 1 ascending, they will just have posts on them in opposite order. I don't think actually reversing order of pages is easily doable.

  • the fact is that the very reverse pagination is done. Entries go as expected. Code took here wordpress.stackexchange.com/questions/60547/… works fine.There was only one problem. Home starnitsa this page / 1 /, and the need to page/20 /How to make a home page www :/ / example.com/page/20 /??? sorry for my english. Use the program interpreter

  • If you are interested found a solution. wp-includes/query.php the file in block / / Paging in the variable $page gave meaning max_num_pagesgot what he wanted. main = page/20 (or page/21....999 depends max_num_pages) ie reverse pagination work was completely wrong.
