Code

Structure of the HTML code is like that:

<span class="entriesonpagex"><a href=".."><strong>Entries on page <span class="page">3</span></strong></a> of category »<strong>Foobar</strong>«</span>

Make use of these CSS classes if you want to set up individual styles:

.entriesonpagex { }
.entriesonpagex strong { }
.entriesonpagex a { }
.entriesonpagex a strong { }
.entriesonpagex a strong .page { }

HTML of your article template should contain the post ID if you like ‘Entries on page x’ to refer not only to a page with posts but to the post itself:

<div id="post-<?php the_ID(); ?>" class="post"><h1>Post title..<h3>Cookies</h3>

The plugin makes use of cookies in order to save the refering page that leads to a single entry. If cookies aren’t accepted, the plugin generates default archive links apart from category, tag, author and date.

FAQ

Is the plugin compatible with ‘WP Cache’ and ‘WP Super Cache’?

Technically, it is. But as it wouldn’t be meaningful (with static HTML files not even possible) to let cached pages serve the dynamic archive link, ‘Entries on page x’ detects these plugins and serves a) a basic link to page x without category, tag, author oder date if you run ‘WP Cache’ or ‘WP Super Cache’ in legacy caching mode (»Half on« setting), or b) a link to the blog’s home page only if you run ‘WP Super Cache’ in full mode.

If you use ‘Super cache’ mode permanently, is doesn’t make sense to run the ‘Entries on page x’ plugin. But if you activate ‘Super cache’ only at high server loads, you can use ‘Entries on page x’ and don’t have to worry about broken links.

Is the plugin compatible with ‘DB Cache’ and ‘Hyper Cache’?

Yes, it is. (It is supposed to be.)
