Form-based paging with PHP and JavaScript

If you have a blog or news section on your custom website, which you want to separate by pages, use the steps below to implement a paging module. First, I usually create a file called pager.php in your /includes/ folder. The content of that file is below:

In your CSS style-sheet file add the following styles (for page links visual appearance). You will most-likely will modify it later to suit your website:

Now on the very top of your page where you want to implement paging add:

We will have 5 items per page. Change the $numPerPage number if you would like it to be different. Next, fetch your data from the database:

Add a paging form anywhere on the page. We will be changing pages using this form:

And finally, include the paging itself below or above your “posts”:

Enjoy!
