    Months ago I did a small change of the template_blog.php to make some categories disappear in the blog overview but that’s not the reason for the problem, because I tried to reset it with the unmodified backup-file

    For about 1 or 2 weeks, the pagination on the blog overview doesn’t work anymore (look at but the pagination in archives still work. I’m also pretty sure that the permalink didn’t change in this phase. I just know that I updated WordPress from 3.2 to 3.3 two weeks ago.

    Do you have an idea?

    thank you



    Which version of Display are you using? The latest version is 2.0.3 as far as I know.




    Just 1.1 but if I do an Update, changes I’ve done (such as facebook implementation etc.) will be deleted, right?

    But the last update was in 2010 and 2 weeks ago the pagination worked well. It’s also not a failure because of my (small) changes in template_blog.php because I tried a backup-file which is a few months old and it still doesn’t work.


    Hi mehrblick,

    Without more information its hard to say what could have caused it to suddenly stop working. It could be a change in your htaccess file for permalinks, a plugin, permissions on the hosting account, or incompatibility with the older version of Display and wordpress 3.3.

    If you want to try updating, you can see which files specifically have been updated in the version.rtf inside the folder you download fro themeforest. Then you can replace just those updated files to update your theme and replace anything individually that you have customized.




    I have tried a lot of things, including deactivating of plugins, trying another pagination system, checking permalink settings etc.

    I also tried to replace the template_blog.php and the pagination.php.

    Do you know other files that influence the pagination system of display and that I should update (I can’t easily update all files cause I’ve done a lot of changes)


    ok, I tried to activate a new display version but same problem still with the new display.

    I also tried to activate the new display version on a NEW wordpress installation and on ANOTHER HOST there was the same problem, so everyone must have problems with this pagination in wordpress 3.3+, i guess.


    Ok it does work if I set my permalink-settings to standard instead of “month and name”.

    But we always used “month and name”.

    So works doesn’t work (!)

    Archives: works works


    It works!

    I have updated some files and also changed the permalink-setting category-basis




    Glad that this was resolved. :)




    I need your help again.

    The problem was that there was “blog” used as a category-basis which is also the blog page (

    So if I use blog as a category-basis (3,4, etc.) doesn’t work or shows the same articles than page 1.

    Do you have an idea how to realize this?

    Under Preferences -> Read I have selected “your last article” as a home page. I can’t set Blog as an article page to cause then looks like the home page (with slider etc).

    I have customized the blog-overview a bit to exclude a category but I also tried it with the default file of the theme but the pagination still doesn’t work. Here’s my customized version :

    global $more, $k_option;
    $k_option[‘custom’][‘bodyclass’] = “”; // $k_option[‘custom’][‘bodyclass’] = “class=’fullwidth'”;
    $negative_cats = preg_replace(“!(d)+!”,”-${0}$0″, $k_option[‘blog’][‘blog_cat_final’]);
    $query_string = “cat=”.$negative_cats.”&paged=$paged”;
    $page = (get_query_var(‘paged’)) ? get_query_var(‘paged’) : 1;



    Hi mehrblick,

    One of the limitations with permalinks using plain text names is that they can not have the same name as a page. So won’t work. The permalink needs to be in order for there not to be any issues.

    I don’t believe there is any way to work around this limitation as its part of the core wordpress files and functions. You can try changing the slug for your blog page to “Our Blog” or something like that which should eliminate the issue if I understand it correctly.
