Resolved Pagination and boxes in category pages


Question

Posted · Report post

Hi. I'm trying to add pagination to a category page. The only content on the page will be different boxes from the same box set. I would like to show only 15 boxes per paginated page and show the next 15 on the next paginated page and so on.

Is there a way to this?

As for now the pagination works but I always see only the first 15 boxes over and over again on every paginated page.

Thanks.

Hi there, I'm not 100% sure on what you mean. Do you have posts on this page as well as boxes? Pagination as far as I'm aware doesn't work on boxes sets only posts. If you're looking to achieve that type of effect have you tried using the post pins section?

Because this uses posts to populate the post pins you'll be able to use the pagination http://www.pagelines.com/store/sections/pagelines-postpins/

Hmm, I may be using the wrong technique...

What I am trying to create is basically a photo gallery with multiple pages, 15 boxes ( thumbs) per page. Every picture is a different post.

Basically I would like my posts to appear as thumbs on my category page, something like here http://sousstyle.com/recipes/breakfast-brunch/ but without the text underneath.

Would that be possible with postpins or can you suggest something else? Thank you!

PostPins is designed to display posts rather than set up a photo gallery with multiple pages. If you're leaning toward a photo gallery, you may want to try using a gallery plugin instead (one that allows you view full images in new pages). You can search for plugins here: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/

Thank you for responding Catrina!

I would like to achieve this same look only without the text underneath http://sousstyle.com/recipes/breakfast-brunch/ for each page.

I prefer that every picture is an individual post because I'd like to use the comment and share option.

I have looked for gallery plugins but I have not found anything like it... maybe I should look more.

Do PostPins have the option to show only the picture itself without the grey frame and the text underneath? Thank you again!

Hi,

Basically the Pagination only works for posts and pages. If you wish to create a photo gallery you will need to use a plugin that offers this kind of functionality. Therefore, as Catrina suggested above, you will need to browser the Wordpress plugin repository.

I would recommend you take a look at Nextgen Gallery - http://wordpress.org...extgen-gallery/

PostPins has been designed to display Posts using the Feature Image and excerpt and not designed for images only.
