Home › Forums › Back End › Custom Template with posts but no page navigation
Recently created page templates for catagories and it shows the desired 6 posts per page but, the WP-PageNavi plugin isnt working.
I had the same issue when i was building a custom template too, did a little searching and found this small snippet to replace the WordPress page navigation function.
posts_nav_link(' | ', 'Previous Page', 'Next Page');
PS: You can use this before or after the_loop()
