WordPress Custom Post Type Pagination Issue

By on Mar 27, 2014 in Wordpress | 0 comments

Just a quick one. I’ve been creating a theme that uses three different post custom post types and I just couldn’t get pagination working. By pagination I just mean a link to see older / newer posts. This was working fine for standard posts but not my custom post types. My Set up So for example I had a custom post type called Events and I was wanting to display these in a page called page-events.php, so the paginated pages would have the slug, domain/events/page/2 this just would not work. A stripped down version of the code I’m using to output my CPT. The Solution After a little bit of searching around I finally found the answer. Its so straight forward, simply call your page something other than what you have called your CPT.

Coda, TextExpander, Things, Billings and of course 1Password. It’s this endless library of quality software that makes choosing to use a Mac over a Windows based PC a very easy one. 1Password for the Mac is the first application I install on to a new mac and I recommend it to everyone. It just works so well, I use it to store all of my clients data, FTP details, general account info etc. The fact that you can also login into websites automatically is just a nice added bonus for me. I’ve had a copy for my iPad and iPhone and always found these versions to be serviceable but unspectacular, partly to be fair to the limiations of iOS. This brings me to my main point, 1Password 4 for iOS 6, and I think you do have to be running iOS 6 to...
