Add pagination to your blog

Add the first block of code to the functions.php of your wordpress theme, then just add the my_paginate_links() function in the location you wish to have your pagination appear.

   function my_paginate_links() {
   global $wp_rewrite, $wp_query;
   $wp_query->query_vars['paged'] > 1 ? $current = $wp_query->query_vars['paged'] : $current = 1;
   $pagination = array(
     'base' => @add_query_arg('paged','%#%'),
     'format' => '',
     'total' => $wp_query->max_num_pages,
     'current' => $current,
     'prev_text' => __('« Previous'),
     'next_text' => __('Next »'),
     'end_size' => 1,
     'mid_size' => 2,
     'show_all' => true,
     'type' => 'list'
   if ( $wp_rewrite->using_permalinks() )
   $pagination['base'] = user_trailingslashit( trailingslashit( remove_query_arg( 's', get_pagenum_link( 1 ) ) ) . 'page/%#%/', 'paged' );
   if ( !empty( $wp_query->query_vars['s'] ) )
   $pagination['add_args'] = array( 's' => get_query_var( 's' ) );
   echo paginate_links( $pagination );

  1. This code work with “WP_Query();” ? please explain how

    1. WP_Query() has a pagination parameter ‘paged’ all put into paginate_links

      The WP_Query codex page has more details then I can explain within the comments. Including code samples etc.
