    Hello all,

    I am having the hardest time simply paginating a category of posts. I’ve looked at many forums, codexes, and Google results to no avail. What the heck am I doing wrong here?

    The code:

    <?php if ( have_posts() ) : ?>
        <?php while ( have_posts() ) : the_post(); /* THE LOOP */ ?>
    <div id="pageHeader"><?php the_block('Page Header'); ?></div>
    <div id="pageEntry" class="group">
        <div class="inner group">
            <h2 class="pageTitle"><?php the_title(); ?></h2>
                    <?php $posts = get_posts("posts_per_page=5&cat=15,22"); ?>
                        <?php if( $posts ) : ?>
                            <?php foreach( $posts as $post ) : setup_postdata( $post ); ?>
                <article class="projects group">
                    <div class="leftProjCol group"><?php echo get_the_post_thumbnail($post->ID, 'feat-thumb'); ?></div>
                    <div class="rightProjCol">
                        <h2 class="projectTitle"><a href="<?php echo get_permalink(); ?>"><?php echo $post->post_title; ?></a></h2>
                        <div class="thePost">
                                          $excerpt = get_the_excerpt();
                                          echo string_limit_words($excerpt,60);
                            <?php //echo apply_filters('the_content', $post->post_content); ?>
                        <a class="readOn" href="<?php echo get_permalink(); ?>">Read More</a>
                    <?php /* Keep these three lines out to separate each article */ ?>
                    <?php endforeach; ?>
                    <?php endif; ?>
                    <?php wp_reset_postdata(); #clean up ?>
                    <div id="pagWrap" class="group"><span class="prev"><?php previous_post_link('%link', 'Previous in category', TRUE); ?></span><span class="next"><?php next_posts_link(); ?></span></div>
    <?php endwhile; ?>
    <?php endif; ?>

    Thanks in advance.


    I’d recommend converting this over to using WP_Query along with properly set paged params.
