What would you like to do?
Genesis custom loop with pagination
/* Template Name: Test */
* Genesis custom loop
function be_custom_loop() {
global $post;
// arguments, adjust as needed
$args = array(
'post_type' => 'post',
'posts_per_page' => 1,
'post_status' => 'publish',
'paged' => get_query_var( 'paged' )
Overwrite $wp_query with our new query.
The only reason we're doing this is so the pagination functions work,
since they use $wp_query. If pagination wasn't an issue,
global $wp_query;
$wp_query = new WP_Query( $args );
if ( have_posts() ) :
echo '<ul>';
while ( have_posts() ) : the_post();
echo '<li>' . get_the_title() . '</li>';
echo '</ul>';
do_action( 'genesis_after_endwhile' );
add_action( 'genesis_loop', 'be_custom_loop' );
remove_action( 'genesis_loop', 'genesis_do_loop' );

I'm using this snippet in local dev environment with 15 posts on custom post type. Posts per page set to 5.
First page fine. second page fine. Third and final page - 404 error.
Are there any other consideratios I might need for fixing pagination?

It may help someone out there, but on line 13 I made a change on my site for it to use the options set in WordPress Settings > Reading > Blog Pages Show at Most. This way you can update the settings, and have it reflect without changing the code.

'posts_per_page' => get_option('posts_per_page'),

Worked when I added genesis_posts_nav(); after the while statement like shown on the blog post:
