How To Remove older and newer posts links

  1. Hi

    Ive installed a page navigation plugin (http://www.jenst.se/2008/03/29/wp-page-numbers) which is working nicely, but it hasnt removed the thematic page navigation of "<< Older posts" and "Newer posts >>".

    How do I remove this from search.php and index.php?

    Cheers

  2. To answer my own question I edited 'wp-content/themes/thematic/library/styles/default.css' from this:

    /* =Navigation -- */

    .nav-previous {
    float: left;
    width:50%;}

    .nav-next {
    float: right;
    width:50%;
    text-align:right;}

    To this:

    /* =Navigation -- */

    .nav-previous {
    display:none;}

    .nav-next {
    display:none;}

    I don't think hiding them with css is the best solution. The php for that will still be executed, and the html will still contain those elements.

    A better solution would be to add the following code to the functions.php file in your child theme:

    function remove_post_navigation() {
    	remove_action('thematic_navigation_below', 'thematic_nav_below', 2);
            remove_action('thematic_navigation_above', 'thematic_nav_above', 2);
    }
    add_action('init', 'remove_post_navigation');

    You can of course use only one of the two "remove_action"s depending on which pagination you want to remove.

  4. Unfortunately your suggestion removes the entire page navigation, including the plugin's navigation.

    To add the new plugin navigation, you just need to hook it in place of the old navigation. Add the following code to your child theme functions.php

    // Action to create the new below navigation
    function childtheme_nav_below() {
    		if (is_single()) { ?>
    
    			<div id="nav-below" class="navigation">
    				<div class="nav-previous"><?php thematic_previous_post_link() ?></div>
    				<div class="nav-next"><?php thematic_next_post_link() ?></div>
    			</div>
    
    <?php
    		} else { ?>
    
    			<div id="nav-below" class="navigation">
                    //this is the important bit
                    <?php if(function_exists('wp_page_numbers')) { ?>
                    <?php wp_page_numbers(); ?>
                    <?php } else { ?>
    				<div class="nav-previous"><?php next_posts_link(__('<span class="meta-nav">&laquo</span> Older posts', 'thematic')) ?></div>
    				<div class="nav-next"><?php previous_posts_link(__('Newer posts <span class="meta-nav">&raquo</span>', 'thematic')) ?></div>
    				<?php } ?>
    			</div>	
    
    <?php
    		}
    }
    add_action('thematic_navigation_below', 'childtheme_nav_below', 2);

    This function is exactly the same as the "thematic_navigation_below" function, except it doesn't look for the wp_pagenavi function (as thematic does), it looks for the wp-page-numbers function.

    The original "thematic_navigation_below" function can be found in "wp-content/themes/thematic/libary/extensions/content-extensions.php".

  6. As per ap0019er's initial response, how come the following code wouldn't work for me? (I've since used the suggested code and it works a charm, just so I understand.)

    function remove_nav_below() {
    }
    add_filter('thematic_navigation_below','remove_nav_below', 2);

  7. b/c thematic_navigation_below isn't a filter, it is an action. you can tell where filters are available b/c they are marked APPLY_FILTERS

    Won't this work just to blast 'em away?

    function childtheme_override_nav_below() { }
