Previous Entries link does not work

Recommended Posts

I am using WHP 3.0.1 and noticed recently that the Previous Entries link no longer works on the blog, on search results, or any other listing of posts or pages.

I tried recommended fixes below but none of them worked:

1) Re-saved the permalinks

2) De-activated ALL plugins (the Previous Entries link didn't work even with every single plugin deactivated all at once)

3) Upgraded to 3.1.5

I also tried the WP-PageNav plugin with disastrous results ... it locked me out of everything and I believe it is incompatible with WHP.

For now, I decided go back to WHP 3.0.1 until I can figure out first things first.

Do you have any suggestions for what else I could do now?

Thank you.

Hi Claude,

I've had a look at the link and online to see what could be happening. To me it looks like a permalinks issue based on others who've experienced the same thing online. Could you go back into settings>permalinks, not change anything, but just hit save and then refresh.

If that doesn't work the only other thing I've found which could help is go to settings/reading and change the default number "blog pages show at most" from the default to anything higher else. Its worked for others online

Let us know how you get on :)

Kindly search the forum and read the documentation before posting. It will help you resolve many issues.

For CSS help be sure to check out W3Schools first and be sure to download FireBug for FireFox for troubleshooting.

James,

Thanks for your reply.

I tried those steps you suggested: re-saving permalinks and increasing the number of blog pages that will show. However, those steps did not work.

As I mentioned earlier, I also tried to disable all plugins all at once and that did not work either.

Do you have any other suggestions?

Thank you.

Claude, this seems to be working in Firefox on your site. Is there a specific browser in which the links don't work?

If that's the case, likely this is a plugin conflict. Since you're using WHP, I'm presuming this is not a new website and thus you might have some older, possibly deprecated plugins. Since WordPress is updated routinely, they can cause some plugins to fail or conflict with other things.

Have you updated WP lately? Perhaps just before this stopped working for you?

Rob,

Actually, it's not working in Firefox. It just dies there, although at least there's no error message.

It's also not a plugin conflict, since, as I mentioned previously, I deactivated ALL plugins at the same time, and it still didn't work.

My WP is at Version 3.4.2 which is the latest one.

Any other suggestions?

What's going on??

Thanks.

Simon, thanks. Just tried with WordPress default theme and their version of the link ("Older Posts") also yields the exact same error message. So, this rules out WhiteHousePro as being the cause of the problem. That's progress! Even though I have some more homework to do, I appreciate all of the help I got here. Thank you.

Dear Simon,

I solved it.

Here is what happened.

I was getting a 500 error, which points to the server. The server error log message was:

"PHP Fatal error: Call to undefined function get_header() ... in page.php line 2 ..."

It turns out I had an "unwelcome" page.php file inside my /public_html folder, which I believe was placed there when I upgraded to the new WhiteHousePro version 3.1.x. How it got there, I don't know, because I used the automatic zip file upload feature under Themes.

This unwelcome file was upsetting WordPress, regardless of theme, because that file isn't supposed to be in that folder. It is supposed to be in the Theme folder.

The solution was simply to delete it (actually just to be safe I first renamed it), because there is already a page.php file inside the theme folder itself (I confirmed this before taking any action).

It is not completely confirmed whether WHP upgrade was guilty of placing the file there, but my upgrade plus the problem coincided, and I have not touched that folder nor that file, so this may have been the cause.

Thanks!!!

      Hello, I'm not seeing post navigation on my pages. There is not Previous Entries link appearing on my blog category pages. The fixes found in the thread are over 5 years old and don't apply to my version. Please advise. I'm using WhiteHousePro version 1.1.8.
      Thank you!

      HI,  I am using White House Pro.  I noticed on your PageLines Website that there are no longer any Themes.  Does that mean that White House Pro is no longer a choice?
      Problem:  When I open WP dashboard and then Try to go to my website to view.  I either get a white screen or sometimes I get the DMS that spins but does not every connect.
      Also on the WP dashboard, under "themes"....  the images don't load correctly... some are ok, but some are only half there, with lots of lines going across.
      I have deactivated all the plugins.  I changed the WP-config-php from false to "true".  I increased the PHP memory to 96 (through my Go Daddy rep). 
      I am about ready to pull out all my hair and run screaming down the street (not a pretty sight!) Hope there is someone out there that can help.  So frustrating!  Thanks!
      PS, my site is not active yet.  GoDaddy had me put a redirect in Notepad, so only I can see it on my computer.  Other people see the live (3 page simple) free google site. Sorry!  Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

      Hello, Some differences between WHv3 and v6 is I can't figure out how to activate the sidebar widgets area. Also, I don't see previous entries at the bottom of my posts page that allows users to continue looking through posts. Can you help me with these?
      Thx.

      Dear PageLines,
       
      I just got DMS2, and very excited about it. Currently have White House Pro but moving to DMS and testing on local server (MAMP) at the moment. This is my first question.
       
      Is it possible to set up multiple sidebars? For example, the primary, a secondary, and so on ... a very short one, a medium height, and a very tall one? If so could you please tell me how? Or please point me in the right direction?
       
      Thank you.

      Over the last month I had extensive communications with the developer of the (premium) Anything Boxes section (in Pagelines store) (Adam Munns) and the developer of the WP Polylang Multilingual plugin (Frederic Demarle).
       
      This was because the following problem occurred:
      Anything Boxes showed all posts of two languages (Dutch and English) on the respective static frontpages for each language. It should of course have filtered posts for Dutch language on the Dutch frontpage and English on the English frontpage.
       
      The solution to this problem was simple in the end. When duplicating a page for use in another language the settings for Anything Boxes were not copied to the new page and I should have set these settings manually again on the new page. I wasn't aware of this, but it makes sense. Because of this the pages didn't know how to differentiate between posts from different languages.
       
      The dev of Polylang told me that Polylang is currently smart enough to synchronize metas like Featured images and page templates but it does not work out of the box with metas created by plugins and themes but (according to Frederic) it is rather easy to add them in the list using the filter 'pll_copy_post_metas'.
      He mentions that he is not sure that these 'PageLines Meta Settings' are stored in post meta but that would make sense according to him. He asks if the Pagelines dev team will be interested to support this feature in the future.
       
      I'm also wondering if you will consider adding Polylang translation support for manually editable strings like the 'Read more…' strings in Pagelines Settings.
       
      Well that's of course up to you but I thought to let you know to be able to take this into consideration. I also post this for other users in case they experience the same kind of trouble and are looking for an answer.
       
      Best regards,
      Jan Peeters
