Pagination with custom post types results in 404 issues
I’ve a very simple
<div id="content"> <? get_template_part('content', get_post_format()) ?> </div> <div id="pagination"> <? previous_posts_link() ?> <? next_posts_link() ?> </div>
content.php looks roughly like this:
<? $paged = get_query_var('paged') ? get_query_var('paged') : 1; query_posts([ 'post_type' => ['articles', 'projects', 'tips'], 'orderby' => 'date', 'posts_per_page' => 7, 'paged' => $paged ]); ?> <? while(have_posts()): the_post() ?> <article class="post"> <h2><? the_title() ?></h2> <p><? the_excerpt() ?></p> <ul> <? foreach($categories as $cat): ?> <li class="category"><a href="#"><?= $cat->name ?></a></li> <? endforeach ?> </ul> </article> <? endwhile ?>
There are 14 posts in total but the “next” posts is always redirecting to a 404 on
/page/2 instead of showing the remaining 7 posts.
Edit: If I use a custom
WP_Query instead of
query_posts then the next and previous links won’t even show. https://gist.github.com/elclanrs/4782705
I’ve been trying to find a solution to this issue since yesterday. I’m aware of all the other questions similar to this one, but for my particular set-up none of the solutions I found worked, including:
- Make sure that “Blog pages show at most” matches
I’m also aware of
pre_get_posts but I would like to know what’s the problem with my current setup. Any ideas?
