How to add Page Navigation To Thesis WordPress Plugin

By default Thesis wordpress theme doesn’t come with page navigation. It has entries like previous entry and next entry, which is not very good to lower down the bounce rate and provide an easy navigation to your reader.

To add Page navigation to Thesis wordpress theme, you need to have

Wp Page Navigation Plugin

Thesis open hook plugin

Download, install and activate both the plugins. Copy the following code and put it in Before footer option of Thesis open hook plugin.

Make sure you keep a checkmark   on Execute php on this hook to make this code work.

<div align="left">
<?php if(function_exists('wp_pagenavi')) { wp_pagenavi(); } ?>
<br />
</div>

Thesis page navigation thumb

Giving page navigation option to your readers, will help you to lower down your blog bounce rate.

Meanwhile Thesis theme helped a lot to lower down the bounce rate. When First time I installed Thesis wordpress theme Shoutmeloud bounce rate come down to 17%. For more information on Thesis wordpress theme, do refer to my previous posts on :

    Hello, and thank you for the time you spend explaining in such a clear manner the ins and outs of Thesis. It’s very much needed…

    I have the same question as Rajesh Kanuri above ie. as I only have my blog posts showing on the front page, I only need the paging there and in the archive for the categories I guess. So how can I only display the paging on the home page and the archive page only and how to remove the Previous and Next link ? Looks like there is the need for another tutorial… W

      I’ve installed a copy of Bloggusion too and This Wp-navi is work fine.

      If u failed to add the code wp-navi to thesis_hook_before_footer, you can try it to add on thesis_hook_after_content and check all box below the php form.

      You can see my wp-navi button on handokotantra.com :)

    Hi, thanks so much for your info. I am trying to get the page navigation to read the previous and next post titles, like you have here on your blog. Could you help me with what I should do to make it look like that please. I don’t like the way the boxes show up with numbers to just the pages of my blog.

    Thanks,

    Sherena

      Sourish
      for other theme Page navigation plugin is usually plugin and and play. But this may not work in all the cases, for some themes like Thesis, you may need to play with codes.

    Harsh, as usual You are building my library of interesting articles. I am bookmarking all your Thesis related articles for tweaking the theme myself.

    Awaiting more information.

    And also, please post about any developers who can create a customized design around Thesis theme. The conventional one looks too popular.

    This is truly a great plugin and I’m using it myself. A bounce rate of 17 percent are actually fantastic. At my personal blog (ducedo.com) I have a bounce rate of 55 percent. Something to work on..

      Bounce rate of 55% is also good Stefan. Though as a blogger, we should always try to keep our Bounce rate as low as we can. This can only achieved when we are getting targeted traffic.
