Good day, I admire your work here, a very good resource for learning wordpress
by the way, I am a semi-novice wordpress developer, been doing wordpress a little bit so I understand most of wordpress basic stuff.
I have a client who have an existing wordpress site, mostly the site utilizes heavily on wp pages not posts, now he requisted to have a “blog section”.
The output I want is like this site http://leadsblog.com
I want to have a general page for displaying at least 5 recent posts, then have a next and previous links to go to next older 5 recent posts.
basically what I want to acheive is basically what leadsblog.com works
what I did is use home.php to hold on the blog postings, then use single.php to hold each post
now the thing in particular I stumble is when it comes to paging, i dont seem quite well get how it works, I have basic knowledge on the loop
just simple illustration on how to accomplish this with just minimum code would do the trick
i hope you can help me on this
Thank you in advance

by the way, am not using a child theme, I want to do it manually on my own so that I could fully understand its concepts.

I figured out now where I went wrong, when using a custom loop using WP_Query, the pagination doesn’t work, coz $wp_query global variable wont be available.
the trick is to trick wordpress that we are using $wp_query
Thank You Anyways
