Questions about templates sections: blog post vs blog, purpose of post/page pagination, posts info

Recommended Posts

Pagelines is awesome and I am trying to understand its many features as best as possible. What exactly does the Post/Page Pagination section do exactly? I can't see any difference whether I include it in a blog post or not. What exactly is a "Blog" in the templates section. I understand Blog Post and Category. What is "Blog" if not either of these 2 options? I understands post info, but when exactly does it appear? Thank you!

Hi sgendry. 1. Post/Page Pagination is a section that displays the <-- Previous Entries or Next Entries -->, which allows you to navigate through your Blog pages. This section comes into play when you have more posts on your blog. If you go to the Wordpress Admin Dashboard > Settings > Reading, you should see an option called "Blog pages show at most". This controls how many posts are visible on the Blog at once, the default is set to 10. Therefore, if you have 15 posts on your blog, only 10 will be visible. The Post/Page Pagination then will allow you to navigate to the previous entries. However, one awesome feature of this section is that it supports the plug-in [url="http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-pagenavi/"]WP-PageNavi[/url], when you install this plug-in the <-- Previous Entries or Next Entries --> are replaced with pretty numbers. You can see an example of this in action by view the PageLines.com blog [url="http://www.pagelines.com/blog/"]here[/url], simply scroll to the bottom of the page. 2. The Blog template is the main template for your blog, if you view the PageLines blog using the link above, that is the Blog Template. If you then click on a Posts and view the full post, that is the Blog Post Template. The easiest way to find out what each template does, is to simply login to your Wordpress website and when you view your website, the Wordpress Adminbar should be visible at the top of your site. Once there you should have something similar to this : http://screencast.com/t/ICVGDszHNyi4 The red arrow is pointing to the template that is used on the page you're viewing, the example above I am viewing my test blog and therefore, it is using the Blog Template.
