Looking to learn something new?
How do I set up a older posts page to show older posts (the next 10) still in order
Im not sure how to make it chose the previous ten posts on a page by with a button at the bottom that would normally read 'older posts' or 'previous'
Any tips or reading material for this?
I think what you're referring to is something called 'Pagination'. Wordpress has it in its online codex, heres a snippet of what you should need.
<?php if ( have_posts() ) : ?> <?php while ( have_posts() ) : the_post(); ?> <!-- the rest of your theme's main loop here --> <?php endwhile; ?> <!-- Add the pagination functions here. --> <div class="nav-previous alignleft"><?php next_posts_link( 'Older posts' ); ?></div> <div class="nav-next alignright"><?php previous_posts_link( 'Newer posts' ); ?></div> <?php else : ?> <p><?php _e('Sorry, no posts matched your criteria.'); ?></p> <?php endif; ?>
The amount of posts showing on each page will depend on yours settings under Settings > Reading in the WordPress admin dashboard.
Let me know how you go, hope this helps
