    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

    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 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.

    Thank You



    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

    I am glad you solved your own issue with the $wp_query – we are a a web design Sydney specialist and have dedicated support team for these issues, but our team still need support for support hence arriving at this post!


    the wordpress plugin is now live
