    Hi guys
    I found it in the wordpress site but i don't understand how to insert it on all corresponding pages and "The loop". I keep getting errors.

    My WP template does not have a "next post" link at the bottom of the pages and I would like to insert it.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks
    Reinie

    Please read this..

    alternatively you can use this wp plugin too "WP-PageNavi"
    google for it..

    Thanks for trying to help.
    But as i said...I already found it but its very confusing.

    I have tried the above method with no success...

    also, those plugins don't work if you dont have the original code to begin with

    If you are wanting to do this on "pages" vs. "posts" the coding and placement is different.

    add:
    PHP:
    <?php next_posts_link('« Previous Entries'?>
    <?php previous_posts_link
    ('Next Entries Â»'?>
    between some code like this:
    PHP:
    <?php if (have_posts()) : while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>
    and
    PHP:
    <?php endwhile; ?>
    on your archive.php index.php search.php single.php

    maybe you'd like to try wp-pagenavi plugin to make it someting like this:

    page 1 of 10 | first page |1 2 3 4 ... |last page
    it need simple php code inserted on your footer

    Sounds like you may be using an older theme with some incompatibilities with the current version of WP.
