Broken pagination on homepage?

Hello, I’m using Jekyll v3.4.3 in Arch and I’ve been experiencing some issues with pagination on my homepage. When I add to _posts with the categories foo1 or foo2, the homepage paginates nicely. When I populate category foo3 with posts, the homepage doesn’t show any posts at all. It’s very bizarre and I don’t know where to start debugging.

Could it be an issue with my index?

$ cat /website/index.html

layout: default

<div class="home">

  {% for post in paginator.posts %}
     {% if post.categories contains "foo1" or post.categories contains "foo2" %}
  <div class="post postContent">
    <div class="postTag">
    <div class="postTitle">
    <a class='postLink' href="{{site.baseurl}}{{post.url}}">{{post.title}}</a>
    <div class="postExt">
   {{ post.content | strip_html | truncate:275}}
  {% endif %}
  {% endfor %}
  {% if paginator.total_pages > 1 %}
    <nav class="pagination">
      {% if paginator.previous_page %}
	<a class="paginationLink" href="{{ paginator.previous_page_path | prepend: site.baseurl | replace: '//', '/' }}">&laquo; Prev</a>
      {% endif %}
    {% for page in (1..paginator.total_pages) %}
      {% if page == %}
	<em class="paginationLink paginationLinkCurrent">{{ page }}</em>
      {% elsif page == 1 %}
	<a class="paginationLink" href="/">{{ page }}</a>
      {% else %}
	<a class="paginationLink" href="{{ site.paginate_path | prepend: site.baseurl | replace: '//', '/' | replace: ':num', page }}/">{{ page }}</a>
      {% endif %}
    {% endfor %}

    {% if paginator.next_page %}
      <a class="paginationLink" href="{{ paginator.next_page_path | prepend: site.baseurl | replace: '//', '/' }}/">Next &raquo;</a>
    {% endif %}
  {% endif %}

Or the default.html?

$ cat /website/_layouts/default.html

<!DOCTYPE html>

  {% include head.html %}


    {% include header.html %}

    <div class="page-content">
      <div class="wrapper">
	{{ content }}

    {% include footer.html %}



Or something else? Could really use some help with this, I’m totally stuck. Let me know if you need anymore info.


Anyone? And ideas?

I don’t use pagination so I won’t b of much help, but what happens if you just check for one of the cats without the ‘or’ part? does that work properly?

or maybe try using a where filter in the for loop rather than the if statement?

which version of the paginator are you using? I think there is a newer version that has more capabilities.
