Pippin Williamson answers:

Try changing your first query to this:


$global $query_string;
WP_Query($query_string . "&posts_per_page=10&category_name=life-sciences&paged=".$paged);


Sarbartha Das comments:

Sorry!
Not working..


Pippin Williamson comments:

Ok, try replacing



$the_query = new WP_Query("posts_per_page=10&category_name=life-sciences&paged=".$paged);


with:


$global $query_string;
query_posts($query_string . "&posts_per_page=10&category_name=life-sciences&paged=".$paged);

and then replace


<?php $count=0; while ( $the_query->have_posts() ) : $the_query->the_post(); ?>

with

<?php $count=0; while ( have_posts() ) : the_post(); ?>

David Navarrete answers:

you could will try with this

global $wp_query;
and use query_posts instead of WP_Query





Sarbartha Das comments:

"Sorry" this thing is not working..
Breaking the code when next page browsed...

There are two different category "Life Sciences" and "General Lab" and there are sub-categorical product on "Life Sciences".
Now in "General Lab" has all the sub-category and products which "Life sciences" have. Same product.

Denzel Chia answers:

Hi,

With reference to WordPress Template hierarchy. http://codex.wordpress.org/Template_Hierarchy
Why don't you try using different category templates.
category-{slug}.php - If the category's slug were general-lab, WordPress would look for category-general-lab.php

Use a normal WordPress loop in the template and your pagination issues will be solved.

Use category.php for your other categories and use category-{slug}.php for all special categories that you want to have different styles or codes or highlights.

Thanks.
Denzel
