Page numbers on home page


Question

Posted · Report post

I've being trying to work out how to get page numbers (or any kind of page navigation) on the homepage of www.alicecarolineblog.co.uk. I've set the homepage to display latest posts and have set the number to 10 posts. I want some kind of navigation at the bottom of the page that will enable the reader to click and see the next 10 posts. This seems like it should be simple but I can't for the life of me work out how to do it. Any help would be gratefully received! Thanks.

Hi Alice

 

No you won't need to follow the instructions for the wp navi plugin, that code is already built into the framework. When i look into the core code for the page, its not showing the code for the pagination section present in the template. Are you placing the pagination section into the content area of the blog template? Like - http://screencast.com/t/UwqNIV5zF

 

Also check in the blog meta settings in Pagelines>page options>blog to see if you have the pagination section checked to hidden. http://screencast.com/t/xe8qd9ebgxCY

Hi there, thanks for your advice. I've done both those things (and had tried them before) but can see no navigation. I've emptied caches and refreshed and still not there. I haven't followed the pagenavi installation instructions and delved into the code to replace the default pagelines navigation calls - do I need to do this?

I'm wondering if it has anything to do with the fact that the homepage is just displaying latest posts - I haven't created it as a 'page' as such and therefore does it have a 'content' section at all? Without a 'content' section would it display the pagination?

Missweb - if you are using caching, try clearing and then disabling the cache completely.

Hi,

 

A static or dynamic homepage without the Content section will not display pagination. 

 

If you're displaying posts in a blog fashion (dynamic homepage), then you'll want to add pagination, and as James said, adding the WP-Navi plugin. For that to work, you still need to include the Page/Pagination section to the bottom of the Blog template in Dashboard > PageLines > Drag & Drop > Content Area > Blog. You'll see it as an option on the right (Available Sections). Just move it to Active Sections by dragging and dropping to the bottom of the list.

I have already added the pagination to the blog template content and installed wp navi but still nothing is happening. Any other ideas?

Thank you! I had got the pagination in the template (the site is www.alicecarolineblog.co.uk not www.alicecaroline.co.uk which is the one by my name on the left!) but I had also got that little check box ticked - god knows how but somewhere along the way. Thank you so much for that - so simple and yet so annoying! 

 

Thanks for all your help.

Hi missweb

Please you can try go to

Pagelines > Drag & Drop 

Go to "Blog" and select  and in Select Template Area go to "Content Area" 

Then drag to the Activate Sections

"Post / Page Pagination" in the position you like.
