“Older Articles” Button

  • # May 25, 2012 at 4:32 pm


    I was wondering if anyone knew how to get an “Older Articles” link for WordPress? Examples of what I mean can be seen by visiting these two websites: (Scroll right the the bottom “Older Articles”) and (Scroll right to the bottom “Older Posts”).

    Thank you.

    This is a very basic WordPress feature. By default, the main page shows 10 posts, and then the “Older posts” link just goes to the next page of posts (usually at ).

    So, unless you did some customization on your WordPress setup, all you have to do to is to add this code:

    Older posts

    But I think that link should already appear on your site by default anyway.

    That’s exactly what I wanted but how do I get the page number to change within the hyperlink? So, if they go to page 2, how would I alter the hyperlink to go to page 3 when clicked?

    Thank you for your help, Senff.

    This is standard WordPress functionality, those links should show up automatically if you have enough posts, and you won’t have to do anything for it.

    Ah! I accidentally removed “< ?php include (TEMPLATEPATH . '/_/inc/nav.php' ); ?>” from my index.php file. I didn’t realise this was to do with page navigation.

    Thank you Senff.
