    I’d like to add pagination to the homepage of my Metro-themed homepage. I’ve tried the Genesis Featured Widget Amplified plugin/widget, but as you can see at my site (thesocialwhat.com) the pagination appears, yet doesn’t work.

    Any tips/ideas how I can make this work is most appreciated. Thanks!

    That is exactly what I’ve been trying to do!

    Rather than using a plugin, I was advised to edit the home.php to include or  move the post loop outside the widget area. I haven’t been able to figure it out though; having syntax errors.

    Do you know how to do that?

    No I don’t. I typically rely on widgets etc to make these types of changes…largely so I don’t mess things up too much.

    I’m also trying to work this out. I can’t believe how difficult it is with a widgeted theme. So many sites use pagination so there has to be an answer.

    @ AngelaEloise – How were you advised to edit the home.php file? If you can post up the instructions, I’ll give it a go and see if I can get it to work.

    You cannot do it without an heavy modification on how the theme’s home page works.
    You’ve got to remove the home-bottom widget-area and place there a custom loop instance.

    is it safer or smarter to just make another category called “home” or something, and select all post. Then use the option “Show Category Archive Link” (here’s an example I found… http://www.sliceofscifi.com/ )

    You could add the WordPress next and previous post/page tag in a custom function, Simple hooks plugin with conditional tag or paste it into your home.php file.

    Using a custom function is the best method.

    Change the conditional tag and hook position if needed.

    Code not displaying? grab it on Github.

    You could also install the WP Page Navi plugin and use their code in the custom function.

    the pagination has been added but its not working. How to use the same code on homepage as the code given is for single post page.

    Change the conditional tag in the code above from[php]is_single [/php] to [php]is_home[/php]

    Thanks for the quick reply. I’m still having issues. This code is showing a single older/previous post… not pagination.
