Example No. 1


// Original
// $template_default['article_paginate_navi'] = '<div class="paginate paginate-{POS}">{PREV:&laquo;} {NEXT:&raquo;} page #/##, result ###-####, {NAVI:1-3, |<span>|</span>}</div>'; // {NAVI:123,
// Little play
$template_default['article_paginate_navi'] = '<div class="paginate paginate01-{POS}">&nbsp; [ {PREV:&laquo;} -- {NEXT:&raquo;} ] &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; [Seite (page) # von (off) ##] &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; [Resultat (result) ###-####] &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; [{NAVI:1-3,> &harr; <|<span><|></span>}]</div>'; // {NAVI:123,
$template_default['article_paginate_show'] = 'top bottom rt{RT}'; //where should the navi be shown - possible values: top and/or bottom and/or rt:{RT}


article pagination

/* Article pagination  -------------------- */
    width: 603px;
    border: 1px solid #ccc;
    margin-bottom: 5px;
    font-size: 110%;
    background: yellow;
    background: lightgreen;
    clear: both;
/* Little play --------------- */
    background: gold;
    background: aquamarine;
    clear: both;

Example No. 2

- with {NAVI:123, …..


$template_default['article_paginate_navi'] = '
<div class="article_paginate_navi"><div class="apn_prev">{PREV:&laquo; zur&uuml;ck &laquo;}</div><div class="apn_mid">Seite # von ##</div><div class="apn_navi">- {NAVI:123, - |<span style="color:#555">|</span>} -</div><div class="apn_next">{NEXT:&raquo; n&auml;chste &raquo;}</div></div><br class="clear" />'; //
$template_default['article_paginate_show'] = 'rt{ART_PAGI_NAV} top bottom'; // top bottom rt{RT} where should the navi be shown - possible values: top and/or bottom and/or rt:{RT}

The self created tag {ART_PAGI_NAV} is a replacer for the pagination navigation.
The tag can be placed anywhere in the template, at which the pagination Navi is to stand.


css article pagination

    font-size: 11px;

    float: right;
    color: #555;
    margin: 0;
    padding: 0 0px 0 20px;

Article float

Adoption: The content of the enclosing container has a width of 700px.

The containers for each article have a width of 300px. With float: left; now we lined the containers to each other, until the width dimension of the surrounding container is reached.

  • 300px + 5px + 300px + 5px = 610px
  • 700px - 610px = 90px
    • It fits so no third article container (300px + 5px) into the surrounding container (700px). Thus, the third article-container (and all following) is shown in next lones.

(See pictures above (“front output”).
