Pager is not showing on Modern Theme using Magento 1.4 - no “Next page” and “Previous”

I\’ve been trying to put the pager links \"previous\" and \"next pages\” on my modified Modern Theme for the last 5 or 6 hours but I simply can\’t make it work.

I know this problem has already been discussed before and I followed instructions that I found on this forum, but the links still won\’t show up.

First of all , I tried to manually put the text in Admin backend>Configuration>Design>Pagination: Anchor Text for Previous and Anchor Text for Next, but nothing.

So I followed instructions found on Noam Design blog ( which says to

open catalog.xml located under app/design/frontend/default/yourthemename/layout/ and find this line:

<block type=\"catalog/product_list_toolbar\" name=\"product_list_toolbar\" template=\"catalog/product/list/toolbar.phtml\">

And underneath insert this code:

<block type=\"page/html_pager\" name=\"product_list_toolbar_pager\"/>

But nothing happened, still no \"Next page\” link or right arrow image used in the Modern Theme.

I followed instruction from this thread:

and also from that thread which gave me a lot of hope:

..and still nothing. I flushed cache each time I modified the code of a file. I don\’t know what to do. I\’m a bit confused.

Could someone tell me what are the files I need to modify, in what order? I\’m using the Modern Theme on Magento 1.4.

Any help would be seriously appreciated. Thank you.
