WP 3.2.1

I'm in a bit of a bind. I have to create some pagination for the blog, but I believe I'm running into the bug described here, and I don't have authorization to fiddle with the server's php.ini file.

So, I need to find a way to create pagination for the blog without having max_num_pages. Is that possible? I don't want to re-engineer the blog loop if I don't have to.

EDIT: max_num_pages isn't even in the list of query_vars when I print them with print_r($wp_query->query_vars);

EDIT 2: Similarly, found_posts isn't in $wp_query, either. If it helps, I'm using a modified version of Avia as the theme.

ini_set( 'mysql.trace_mode', 0 );

… in your functions.php.

Maybe an .htaccess entry …

php_value mysql.trace_mode 0

… works too. I haven’t tested it.

  • ini_set doesn't work. print_r($wp_query->max_num_pages) still prints 0. I don't have access to the .htaccess Jan 19, 2012 at 12:18
  • .htaccess should be right in the root folder of your WP installation. You don't have access to that?
