Create custom wordpress page navi

Try this one
Paste the following code in function.php

<?php
#Page Navi

function page_navi($before = ”, $after = ”) {
global $wpdb, $wp_query;

$request = $wp_query->request;
$posts_per_page = intval(get_query_var(‘posts_per_page’));
$paged = intval(get_query_var(‘paged’));
$numposts = $wp_query->found_posts;
$max_page = $wp_query->max_num_pages;

if(empty($paged) || $paged == 0) {
$paged = 1;
}
$pages_to_show = 5;
$pages_to_show_minus_1 = $pages_to_show-1;
$half_page_start = floor($pages_to_show_minus_1/2);
$half_page_end = ceil($pages_to_show_minus_1/2);
$start_page = $paged – $half_page_start;
if($start_page <= 0) {
$start_page = 1;
}
$end_page = $paged + $half_page_end;
if(($end_page – $start_page) != $pages_to_show_minus_1) {
$end_page = $start_page + $pages_to_show_minus_1;
}
if($end_page > $max_page) {
$start_page = $max_page – $pages_to_show_minus_1;
$end_page = $max_page;
}
if($start_page <= 0) {
$start_page = 1;
}

echo $before.'<center><div class=”page_navi”>’.”\n”;
if ($start_page >= 2 && $pages_to_show < $max_page) {
$first_page_text = “First”;
echo ‘<a href=”‘.get_pagenum_link().'” title=”‘.$first_page_text.'”>’.$first_page_text.'</a>’;
}
previous_posts_link(‘&laquo;’);
for($i = $start_page; $i  <= $end_page; $i++) {
if($i == $paged) {
echo ‘<span class=”current”>’.$i.'</span>’;
} else {
echo ‘<a href=”‘.get_pagenum_link($i).'”>’.$i.'</a>’;
}
}
next_posts_link(‘&raquo;’);
if ($end_page < $max_page) {
$last_page_text = “Last”;
echo ‘<a href=”‘.get_pagenum_link($max_page).'” title=”‘.$last_page_text.'”>’.$last_page_text.'</a>’;
}
echo ‘</div></center>’.$after.”\n”;
}
?>

cal the following function where ever you want

 <?php page_navi(); ?>

use the following css for styling

.page_navi{padding:10px 0 10px 10px;}
.page_navi a,.page_navi a:link,.page_navi a:visited{text-decoration:none;border:1px solid #ccc;color:#2b74b4;background-color:#fff;font-weight:700;margin:2px;padding:2px 4px;}
.page_navi a:active,.page_navi a:hover{text-decoration:none;border:1px solid #2b74b4;color:#fff;background-color:#0F0;margin:2px;padding:2px 4px;}
.page_navi span.current{font-weight:700;border:1px solid #2b74b4;color:#fff;background-color:#03C;margin:2px;padding:2px 4px;}

WP-PageNavi not working

I also faced same issue. I found solution for this follow these steps

1. After activating the plugin
2. <?php $page = (get_query_var(‘paged’)) ? get_query_var(‘paged’) : 1;?> add this code before the query_posts
3. Add the paged=$page argument query_posts like <?php query_posts(“paged=$page&showposts=10”); ?>
4.after while loop add the following code
<?php wp_pagenavi(); ?>                        
//Reset Query
            wp_reset_query();
     ?>

Get Post Comments count

Try this one

<?php
$num_comments = get_comments_number(); // for some reason get_comments_number only returns a numeric value displaying the number of comments
if ( comments_open() ){
if($num_comments == 0){
$comments = __(‘No Comments’);
}
elseif($num_comments > 1){
$comments = $num_comments. __(‘Comments’);
}
else{
$comments =”1 Comment”;
}
$write_comments = ‘<a href=”‘ . get_comments_link() .'”>’. $comments.'</a>’;
}
else{$write_comments =  __(‘Comments are off for this post’);}

?>

now use $num_comments just like

<?php echo $num_comments; ?>

This is a small issue but I have taken great time to rectify this. Follow the below steps

2. Open wpsc-shopping_cart_page.php with the text editor
3. find the  <label  ” tag and remove the line breaks in the label tags

Open Categories in new window when it is dropdown list

1. Go to wp-includes/default-widgets.php and find the following line
location.href = “/?cat=”+dropdown.options[dropdown.selectedIndex].value;(line no 451)
2. Replace the above line with the following
window.open(“/?cat=”+dropdown.options[dropdown.selectedIndex].value,’_blank’);
