Pagination not working on custom post excerpts

Dear experts,

Could you please help me to know why the pagination I am applying to post excerpts is not working?

Any help would be greatly appreciated it.

function places_loop() {
    $loop = new WP_Query( array( 'post_type' => 'places', 'posts_per_page' => 4, 'paged' => get_query_var( 'paged' ) ) ); ?>
                <h1><?php the_title(); ?></h1>
            <div id="specials">
    <?php while ( $loop->have_posts() ) : $loop->the_post(); ?>
           
            <h2><a href="<?php the_permalink(); ?>" title="<?php the_title(); ?>"><?php the_title(); ?></a></h2>
            <div id="post-<?php the_ID(); ?>" class="places-list">
            <?php//use the genesis_get_custom_field template tag to display each custom field value ?>
            <h3><?php echo the_field('phone_number'); ?></h3>

            </div><!--end #specials -->
    <?php endwhile;?>
    <?php
    }
 
    genesis();


Thanks,

Winter

Thanks for answering my question.

Attached goes an screenshot as a reference. I am getting the post excerpts but I am not getting the pagination to go to the next post excerpts.

Thanks in advance,

Pagination involves stopping the output so that only the content for a given page is shown, then giving the user the controls to select the next page. Once a user indicates what page they want next, the process repeats itself.

There isn't any code that I can see that would build out the user controls for pagination (unless "genesis()" is supposed to do it, but that's custom code, so you'd have to talk to whoever the original developer was).

[Webinar] Kill tickets & tabs using PowerShell

Are you tired of cycling through the same browser tabs everyday to close the same repetitive tickets? In this webinar JumpCloud will show how you can leverage RESTful APIs to build your own PowerShell modules to kill tickets & tabs using the PowerShell command Invoke-RestMethod.

ok, I found the answer in some genesis tutorials:

function be_custom_loop() {
      global $post;

      // arguments, adjust as needed
      $args = array(
            'post_type'      => 'places',
            'posts_per_page' => 2,
            '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,
      use: https://gist.github.com/3218106
      */
      global $wp_query;
      $wp_query = new WP_Query( $args );

      if ( have_posts() ) :
            echo '<div>';
            while ( have_posts() ) : the_post();
                  echo '<h3><a href="' . get_permalink() . '"> ' . get_the_title() . ' </a> </h3>'; // show the title
