I have added the following custom loop in my Wordpress template:
$args = array( 'category__not_in' => array($featured_cat->term_id), 'posts_per_page' => 10, 'post__not_in' => array($recent_post) ); query_posts($args);
For pagination to work, I guess I need to pass another arg
paged with the current page number. What is the way to get the current page number in Wordpress?
Not near a wordpress system to test this out at the mo, but you should be able to use:
$paged = (get_query_var('paged')) ? get_query_var('paged') : 1;
(obviously defaulting to 1, if it has not been sent through).
using variable $paged.
global $paged; echo $paged;
