WP Page Numbers


User friendly navigation

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