Logarithmic Pagination


This will give you an advanced pagination to distribute your link-juice more evenly across your paginated paged. It also provides a better choice of navigation to the user to explore and find your content.

You can turn the pagination on/off separately for:

  • homepage
  • search results
  • category archives
  • date archives
  • tag archives
  • author archives

Or implement it directly into your theme using <?php the_wp_lopa('pages_below'); ?>.

You can also choose if you want it to be displayed before and/or after the loop content.

The plugin is currently available in English and German. If you want to help translate it, just write me an email. Help is much appreciated!

This plugin is based on the idea found in the following (German) article by Nikolas Schmidt-Voigt: Webseitenstruktur und Paginierung für SEO & a
discussion on stackoverflow.


  • An example of the generated output
  • This is the Settings page of wp-lopa


Does the plugin support the use of pretty permalinks?

Yes, it does. It uses internal WordPress functions to generate the links so all changes to your link structure within your WordPress site will be repsected.

I have navigation showing up in the sidebar.

Until i find a better solution you will have to use the template-tag <?php the_wp_lopa('pages_below'); ?> to call the pagination element. Make sure to uncheck the places on the Settings page aswell.
