  • An example of the df-pagination display using the default options and styling


Install and Activate

  1. Unzip the downloaded df-pagination zip file
  2. Upload the df-pagination folder and its contents into the df-content/plugins/ directory of your WordPress installation
  3. Activate df-pagination from Plugins page


For posts pagination:
1) Open the theme files where you’d like pagination to be used. Usually this is the loop.php file. For older version of WordPress, you may need to update the index.php, archive.php and search.php files.

2) Replace your existing previous_posts_link() and next_posts_link() code block with the following:

<?php if(function_exists('df_pagination')) {
} ?>


1) The styles can be changed with the following methods:

  • Add the following custom CSS to your theme’s `styles.css’ :

    /* Pagination */
    .pagination {
    padding:0 0 10px 200px;
    .pagination span, .pagination a {
    margin: 2px 2px 2px 0;
    padding:6px 9px 5px 9px;
    background: #555;
    .pagination a:hover{
    background: #3279BB;
    .pagination .current{
    padding:6px 9px 5px 9px;
    background: #3279BB;


How can I style paginatios?

You may use the css either from style.css or just copy the custom css from installation tab and paste it into your themes style.css and then edit as you wish.

How can I override the default pagination settings?

The df_pagination() function takes one optional argument, in query string format, which allows you to override the global settings. The available options are:

  • title – The text/HTML to display before the pagination links
  • nextpage – The text/HTML to use for the next page link
  • previouspage – The text/HTML to use for the previous page link
  • before – The text/HTML to add before the pagination links
  • after – The text/HTML to add after the pagination links
  • empty – Display before markup and after markup code even when the page list is empty
  • range – The number of page links to show before and after the current page
  • anchor – The number of links to always show at beginning and end of pagination
  • gap – The minimum number of pages before a gap is replaced with an ellipsis (…)

You can even control the current page and number of pages with:

  • page – The current page. This function will automatically determine the value
  • pages – The total number of pages. This function will automatically determine the value

Example :

<?php if(function_exists('df_pagination')) {
} ?>
