No 'previous posts-button' on category page

Recommended Posts

timversnel

Hi! I've been working on one of my websites and have stumbled on a problem. The blog contains three categories of posts and I want to offer visitors the opportunity to see all posts within just one of these categories. Effectively I want to make three seperate postspages in addition to the regular homepage that shows them all. What I did is simply add buttons for each of the categories in the navigation bar. So far so good, but then there is a problem: the resulting pages only show the eight most recent posts within the given category (eight being the number I entered in viewing settings for the homepage). However, the previous posts-button is nowhere to be seen. To cut to the chase: I want a previous posts-button on these categorypages so visitors can browse through all posts within the category and not just the eight most recent. I've searching around here and through Google, but I haven't been able to find the answer. Is it possible at all what I'm trying to do? Am I just doing it all wrong? Your help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks, Tim P.S. the website in question is www.klusman.com

I think the easiest way is to use a plugin that allows you to enable pagination on the category pages. You may find the right one for you here: http://skyje.com/2010/02/5-excellent-wordpress-pagination-solutions/

Please read the docs before posting. Please do not private message me unless I ask you to.

Hi Catrina, Thanks for your response. However, even with these plugins I can't seem to get pagination on my category pages to work. Any (other) ideas as to what I may be doing wrong? Thanks!

You dont need any plugins, this is already built in! Goto the PageLines/Templates admin page, select category as the page template then click content area, now slide the post/page navigation section to the left.
