How can i disable wp-pagenavi on pages using templates and the wordpress loop? It seems that wp-pagenavi adds itself automatically wherever the wordpress loop is used, not counting that it is a page or not.

you probably have wp_pagenavi() in the footer.php file.

if you don't want it to appear in the page.php you can do this.

<?php if(!is_page()) { ?>

// if it is not a page echo the page navigation

<?php wp_pagenavi(); ?>

<?php } else { ?>

// if it is a page do nothing or you can specify.

<?php  } ?>

but i'm not quite sure of what you mean by page template. if i'm wrong give me the details on that.

good luck

wp_pagenavi() call is automatically inserted by the plugin (not manually by me)..maybe the best way is to manually do so myself. The problem is wp-pagenavi lacks the option to disable automatic insertion. For Page Templates check this link. Another issue is if i use is_page() that will make navigation not show up on pages using custom templates using the loop to show posts and what i want is to show that navigation on certain such pages and not on others. – Shinnok Jan 3 '11 at 13:57
Indeed.. after a deep inspection the theme files were calling wp_pagenavi(). Now all that was left to do is remove the call from the custom page templates as needed. – Shinnok Feb 14 '11 at 20:39
