To display paginated posts from one category with WordPress is quite easy if we are using have_post with the while loop. It does not create any issue with have_post but when you go with foreach,get_posts, for loop, wp_query or custom query, your pagination stops working or create some issue. Sometimes you use the multi query or nested loop and its also create issue with pagination.
So, Let’s see how to use pagination when you are working to get posts from the category in WordPress or to get the post in a category page.
First of all declare
wp_query global variable.Next create argument
$arg_pagi with required current ,total and base parameter and pass it to your pagination function.
Let’s understand by code:
$result = new WP_Query('cat=3');//replace with your desired category id
$args_pagi = array(
'base' => add_query_arg( 'paged', '%#%' ),
'total' => $result->max_num_pages,
'current' => $page
$args =array('post_type' => 'post','post_status' => 'publish','cat' => 3);
$myposts = new WP_Query( $args );
foreach( $myposts->posts as $data ) : setup_postdata($data);
// your desired code
//call pagination function
echo paginate_links( $args_pagi);
It’s Wrap. I hope that you find this technique useful to someone.
