Im stuck then - if i follow that code in the codex the posts still display nicely but none of the pagination codes work, they just don’t output anything. - oh and the sidebar isnt there either then, but no next and last either.
ive tried edit 2 and no pagination appearing with that either, - the only way i get it is with the ‘naughty’ code.
and tried the
php wp resetpostdata (sorry cant type that as code)
but I still get a sidebar.
im beginning to think things just do what they want to trial me !
so im not sure which to do, try and stick with the one that works and try and get rid of the sidebar, or try to figure the one that doesn’t display any pagination.
ive also manually navigated to page two, and i do get a ‘newer’ link at the bottom of that page, but its still the same content, ie not an older set of posts.
