Today I had a real problem with a WordPress website that uses multiple wp_query calls on the home page. The issue was that I could not use the next_posts_link() function properly, since WordPress ignores the “offset” parameter when creating paginated pages.
The solution I used was found here on the WordPress Codex.
Here is the code:
1) ? ($onum) : 0; query_posts("posts_per_page=$qry[total]&paged=$paged&showposts=$qry&offset=$offset"); if (have_posts()) : while (have_posts()) : the_post(); // Loop stuff endwhile; endif; // Reuse the offset variable (rather then creating a new one), setting to a new value (plus any additional offset) // Total in first query, plus any offset, if there is one $offset = $qry + (($paged > 1) ? $onum : 0); query_posts("posts_per_page=$qry[total]&offset=$offset&showposts=$qry"); if (have_posts()) : while (have_posts()) : the_post(); // Loop stuff endwhile; endif; // Again just reusing the variable and adding offset (if page is more then 1) // First posts total, plus second posts total, plus offset (if there is one).. $offset = ($qry + $qry) + (($paged > 1) ? $onum : 0); query_posts("posts_per_page=$qry[total]&offset=$offset&showposts=$qry"); if (have_posts()) : while (have_posts()) : the_post(); // Loop stuff endwhile; endif; // Unset the variables (we've finished with them, no reason to hold onto them) unset($qry,$offset,$onum); ?>
Can you think of an easier way to do this?
