OB Page Numbers


This plugin is based on the wp-page-numbers plugin built by Jens Törnell.
The concept and css come from that, but the plugin has been totally recoded.

Please note: As with all pagination plugins, this plugin requires that you amend some coding in your theme. See the Installation guide.

User friendly navigation

  • With page numbers instead of next and previous links users can easily navigate much quicker to the page they want.
  • It can help with SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) because it creates a tighter inner link structure.
  • Works with all well known browsers (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Opera and Safari).


  • Classic
  • Default
  • Panther
  • Stylish
  • Tiny
