I'm using HTML5Blank theme to edit my own theme on clean basis, and trying to set the pagination but it's not displaying for some reason, and I cant find out why.

Index.php calls loop then pagination templates

    <?php get_template_part('loop'); ?>

    <?php get_template_part('pagination'); ?>

Pagination.php calls pagination function

<div class="pagination">
    <?php html5wp_pagination(); ?>

The function is

// Pagination for paged posts, Page 1, Page 2, Page 3, with Next and  Previous Links, No plugin
function html5wp_pagination()
global $wp_query;
$big = 999999999;
echo paginate_links(array(
    'base' => str_replace($big, '%#%', get_pagenum_link($big)),
    'format' => '?paged=%#%',
    'current' => max(1, get_query_var('paged')),
    'total' => $wp_query->max_num_pages

I haven't touched anything related to the pagination, and I can see that the <div class="pagination"> is called in the HTML using Chrome console, but is not displaying anything.

I thought this could be because I had not enough post to display the pagination, but I tried to add a lot of posts, and it's still not showing.

Any idea of what is the problem ?

  • Are you sure you have more posts than the "Blog pages show at most" setting under Settings > Reading? – TheDeadMedic Nov 10 '15 at 11:46
  • Do echo $wp_query->max_num_pages; in your template and check what it returns – Pieter Goosen Nov 10 '15 at 12:07
