The $pagination object divides a collection of pages, files etc.

How to create a $pagination object

To create a $pagination object, you have to paginate a collection of pages and then call the pagination() method:

$articles   = page('blog')->children()->listed()->paginate(5);
$pagination = $articles->pagination();

This will give us 5 articles per pagination page.


With the object in place, we can now use the methods to create our pagination navigation

<?php if ($pagination->hasPages()): ?>
<nav class="pagination">

  <?php if ($pagination->hasNextPage()): ?>
  <a class="next" href="<?= $pagination->nextPageURL() ?>">older posts</a>
  <?php endif ?>

  <?php if ($pagination->hasPrevPage()): ?>
  <a class="prev" href="<?= $pagination->prevPageURL() ?>">newer posts</a>
  <?php endif ?>

<?php endif ?>


When a list of pages grows longer and longer you need to paginate it.
