How to Add Page Navigation to WordPress Site

by Taswir Haider in Wordpress

Earlier I discussed on how page navigation can be added to Thesis theme. The challenge experienced by a lot of WordPress user is actually after setting up WP-Page Navigation plugin- navigation isn’t appearing below the pages.

This sometime happens when your theme isn’t supporting the Page Navigation plugin. You can include Page navigation system to your own theme by using a line of custom code.

It is assume that you have already installed WP-PageNavi plugin. If not, then download and activate it.

Download WP-PageNavi plugin

Then open Your Themes>Footer.php file and add the following code in the file. Check placement of page navigation and put the code at appropriate section in the footer.php file.

<?php if(function_exists(‘wp_pagenavi’)) { wp_pagenavi(); } ?>

Save the file and refresh the page. Page Navigation should appear at homepage, category and archive pages from now on.
