Getting the post navigation to work in WordPress

This is the way I used the code for AREA203’s website, and it worked well.

<?php
$paged = (get_query_var('paged')) ? get_query_var('paged') : 1;
query_posts("cat=4&paged=$paged&showposts=3");
if (have_posts()) : while (have_posts()) : the_post(); 
the_content();
?>
<?php endwhile; ?>
<div id="postNav">
<span class="previousNav"><?php previous_posts_link(); ?></span>
<span class="moreNav"><?php next_posts_link(); ?></span>
</div>
<?php else : ?>
<?php endif; ?>

Sage Resource Center website

Sage Resource Center was a refreshingly simple WordPress website project. More than anything, to me, this project showcases how nicely WordPress can be implemented to precisely reflect a creative delivered to a client. There was not a lot of advanced functionality, save for some minor interior navigation tweaks made. It is nice, simple, and informative, which is exactly what the client wanted.

I was responsible for building out the entire site, taking advantage of native WordPress features like page templates. There area few touches of simple jQuery that round out the experience.

One of the really fun parts about front end development, for me, is making something dynamic and interactive from a Photoshop creative that is so static and stunning. I enjoy working with WordPress, and I believe that really shows in projects such as the Sage Center website.

AREA203 Website

AREA203 Marketing in Chattanooga, TN is a full service marketing agency, specializing in interactive marketing, brand identity, website design, print advertising and more. I currently work at AREA203 as a Front End Developer, working mostly with email marketing campaigns, PHP microsites, and WordPress sites.

I was responsible to building the WordPress template structure for most of the AREA203 website. I used html, CSS, PHP and WordPress functions and tags to pull a working design together, based from a delivered creative from the designer. Cross browser testing and other troubleshooting was involved. I collaborated along side other UX developers to create a fully functional online experience for the agency, which, with their help, included jQuery sliders and portfolio navigation.

Some of the more difficult tasks that had to be overcome was trying to stick with native WordPress functions and tags while creating a fully intuitive interior navigation. The AREA203 website was fun to build.
