Multiple paginations


I’m working on a design were the designer has both paginated albums and blog posts on the home page. Is it possible to have 2 separate paginated things on a single page.

I initially noticed a problem with the blog posts not displaying when showing the second album page. I set the pagination for the blog posts to false and the blog worked again (without paging which I hadn’t set up for the blog posts yet).

I thought that using 2 different pagination-var setting should work, but the URL doesn’t seem to be changing. For the gallery I have:

 'paginate' =>true,
 'pagination-var' => 'albumpage',

I assumed that should change the query string for paging to use albumpage instead of page but it doesn’t seem to.

Should using pagination-var change the querystring?

Should I be able to get 2 different paginated things by setting a different pagination-var for each?

I think it might be a bug with Gallery still using the old pagination_var option. Can you try that?

If that works, set both pagination_var and pagination-var and that will ensure it keeps working when the bug is fixed.

Hello Drew,

thanks the pagination for the gallery is working great now.

Have a great afternoon
