Easy Pagination helper
One of the first things I wrote when I started working in PHP was a nice little Pagination helper class.
It is very easy to use and made my work easier many times.
So here it is a code sample of how to use it:
// First we have to get the total elements // Create the limit, offset and other useful data first $pag = Pagination::paginate($total_nr, $current_page, 20); // Here we get our data using limit, offset // Build the pagination $pagination = new Pagination(array( 'total' => $total_nr, // The nmber of all elements 'items_per_page' => $pag['pagination'], // How many items will there be on the page 'base_url' => $url, // The base url used, this can contain $_GET elements too, they will not be overwritten 'current_page' => $pag['current'], // Current page we are on 'links_to_show' => 3, // How many links to show between the 3 dots 'page_name' => 'sm_page', // Name of the $_GET parameter to use 'first_string' => '<<', // String that is used for the FIRST link 'prev_string' => '<', // string used for the PREVIOUS link 'dots_string' => '...', // String used for the dots between numbers 'next_string' => '>', // String used for the NEXT link 'last_string' => '>>' // String used for the LAST link )); // Generate the array of pagination links $pagination_links = $pagination->render();
You can also set the mentioned variables after initialization like:
$pagination->base_url = '';
Note that you have to set all variables before calling render()
