Something weird happened and now my magento category page is not showing pagination. I tried searching every where but my store is still not showing page navigation(pagination).
(Magento 1.8 on nginx-php-fpm)
As you are having Sort By option that means you have
<?php echo $this->getToolbarHtml() ?> in your list.phtml file.
Check in the catalog.xml whether you have called xml for pagination. The xml should be as below
<block type="catalog/product_list_toolbar" name="product_list_toolbar" template="catalog/product/list/toolbar.phtml"> <block type="page/html_pager" name="product_list_toolbar_pager"/> </block>
add this code in your list.phtml file
<?php echo $this->getToolbarHtml() ?>
