Template Name: Projects

<?php get_header();?>

    <section id="content">
        <section id="main">

                $loop = new WP_Query(array('post_type' => 'projects', 'posts_per_page' => 4));
                while ( $loop->have_posts() ) : $loop->the_post();

            <article class="post<?php if($i%2 == 0) { echo ' right'; }; $i++; ?>" id="post-<?php the_ID(); ?>">
                <h2><?php the_title(); ?></h2>
                <section class="entry">
                    <?php the_excerpt(); ?>


            <section id="map">
                <img src="<?php bloginfo('template_url') ?>/images/interactive-map.jpg" alt="Interactive Map" />

<?php get_sidebar(); ?>


<?php get_footer(); ?>

I have pagenavi set up right after the endwhile. It's not working, though. Anybody know how I can get this to work?

  • see - wordpress.stackexchange.com/questions/4696/… (basically you need to hijack the $wp_query global and use it instead of $loop Feb 17, 2011 at 5:01
  • I followed the directions in there and the navigation shows now but when I go to page 2, I get an error. Here is the pastebin of what I have. If you can take a look and let me know if you notice anything wrong, I'd be forever grateful. Thank you. pastebin.com/RMZaE6Pi

  • @One Trick Pony: Can you move your comment to an answer, so John can accept it? Maybe include my comment in the referenced answer, because with the new version of WP-Pagenavi you can pass a query argument. John asked a followup question to get the paging working.

wp_pagenavi( array( 'query' => $loop ) );

should work with the code above. Don't hijack the main query if you can avoid it.

  • My source for this: plugins.trac.wordpress.org/browser/wp-pagenavi/trunk/… Feb 17, 2011 at 14:29
  • Indeed, the development version of WP Pagenavi (2.74-alpha) supports this.

  • is this possible with paginate_links() ? Feb 17, 2011 at 14:46
  • paginate_links is somewhat more basic. Instead of giving it a query object, you tell it what the max number of pages are, what the current page is, and a few other parameters (like the format of the url, etc.) Feb 17, 2011 at 14:56
<?php       // Pagination
        if(function_exists('wp_pagenavi')) :
            wp_pagenavi( array( 'query' => $blog_posts_query ) );
        else : ?>
            <div class="navigation">
                <div class="alignleft"><?php previous_posts_link() ?></div>
                <div class="alignright"><?php next_posts_link() ?></div>
<?php       endif;

                // Restore original Post Data
                wp_reset_postdata(); ?>
