@meissudeep FYI I just updated Primer to 1.5.1 because there was a small bug.

All good form my site.

Theme: Primer

  • index.php/archive.php - still using primer_paging_nav(); - you'll need to switch to the_posts_pagination()
  • template-tags.php: the function primer_paging_nav() needs removing!

@meissudeep - you need to be checking the code for the raised isseues before approving tickets!

@fjarrett - Not going to hold this theme back for those issues but do bare in mind if they are not resolved in the next update of Primer they will be blockers for your future child themes from being approved!

@grapplerulrich - you may need to confirm and set live if satisfied :)

Thanks @WPDevHQ.

But we did change primer_paging_nav() so that it no longer uses a custom implementation, it uses the_posts_pagination(). Are wrappers not allowed? And if so, why not?

That doesn't seem to have been pushed to WordPress.org version.

Current version 1.5.1 in template-tags I see this

function primer_paging_nav() {

	global $wp_query;

	if ( ! isset( $wp_query->max_num_pages ) || $wp_query->max_num_pages < 2 ) {



	<nav class="navigation paging-navigation">

		<h2 class="screen-reader-text"><?php esc_html_e( 'Posts navigation', 'primer' ); ?></h2>

		<div class="nav-links">

		<?php if ( get_next_posts_link() ) : ?>

			<div class="nav-previous"><?php next_posts_link( __( '<span class="meta-nav">&larr;</span> Older posts', 'primer' ) ); ?></div>

		<?php endif; ?>

		<?php if ( get_previous_posts_link() ) : ?>

			<div class="nav-next"><?php previous_posts_link( __( 'Newer posts <span class="meta-nav">&rarr;</span>', 'primer' ) ); ?></div>

		<?php endif; ?>

		</div><!-- .nav-links -->

	</nav><!-- .navigation -->


Not the same as GitHub version

What the heck. OK I will look into this then! Thanks for the heads up.

@WPDevHQ Hmmm, well everything looks fine on SVN...


 * Display navigation to next/previous post, when applicable.
 * @link  https://developer.wordpress.org/reference/functions/get_the_post_navigation/
 * @since 1.0.0
 * @uses  the_post_navigation
 * @param array $args (optional) Post navigation arguments.
function primer_post_nav( $args = array() ) {

	 * Filter the default post navigation args.
	 * @since 1.5.0
	 * @var array
	$defaults = (array) apply_filters( 'primer_post_nav_default_args', array(
		'prev_text' => '&larr; %title',
		'next_text' => '%title &rarr;',
	) );

	$args = wp_parse_args( $args, $defaults );

	the_post_navigation( $args );

@WPDevHQ Just noticed we are talking about two different functions primer_paging_nav() and primer_post_nav(). Easy change, we can have it out tomorrow.

@WPDevHQ I have a PR issued now for the above https://github.com/godaddy/wp-primer-theme/pull/164

@meissudeep Any idea on when Activation will be live on WordPress.org?


#11 @WPDevHQ

As soon as the version of Primer on WordPress.org is updated to reflect those changes we can get Activation set to live.

Alright, we just got the pagination fixed in Primer 1.6.0: https://themes.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/40701

I will be updating Activation here tonight with the proper styles to support them.
