Currently, you can chose the widget, which is to be paginated, and set the items to show per widget page individually. You can also set the number of pages to show and change the labels of the previous/next link, as well as let the widget pages turn automatically. Finally, you can change the default styling to match your theme.
Plugin’s Official Site
See a demo at: http://wgpag.jana-sieber.de/
- Român (provided by Alexander Ovsov)
positively tested with Firefox, Chrome, Opera and Internet Explorer 7-9
- animated paging (a few sexy effects)
- support of more widget types than the current standard 7 ones (what others do you need paginated?)
- instant preview of option changes on the plugin settings page (we don’t like surprises, do we)
Use wordpress’ built-in installer, or upload and unzip widget_pagination.zip to your /wp-content/plugins/ directory.
You will find ‘Widget Paginator’ menu in your WordPress admin panel in the ‘Appearance’ area (where you also add widgets to the sidebar).
- Does the plugin work for other widget types, too?
Sorry, currently it only works for the standard widgets, that come with WordPress.
- How can I prevent my pagination from being broken up on two lines?
You can try to decrease the ‘max. items’ count and/or the font sizes in the settings.
- How can I change the order of the list elements?
Sorry, the plugin is not able to do that as the lists are generated by the theme.
- Why can’t I see a pagination on my widgets?
Either your settings are not correct (check the 2nd screenshot) or your theme generates the widgets differently than WordPress. Send us a link to your website, then we will try to help.
