4 Best Pagination Plugins For Your WordPress Blog

Do you want to have better pagination controls in your WordPress blog? Take a look at the bottom of your blog, you should see 2 hyperlinks respectively “Previous posts” and “Next posts”. These 2 hyperlinks let you navigate to your neighboring posts but as you can see they are very much limited. It would be better if you can display a more user friendly and better looking navigation system. In addition to increasing the user experience, it will also increase the SEO of your pages by providing more links to your older content. Use the following WordPress plugins to do just that!

#1 – WP-PageNavi

WP-PageNavi is by far one of the best WordPress pagination plugin. It lets you replace the default previous/next navigation with an advanced, numbered paging navigation. The paging is user friendly as it allows the user to go to a page much more quickly by just clicking on a page number.

If you are adventurous, you can customize the pagination further by changing the CSS file that comes with the plugin. This will allow you to make the pagination match your blog’s theme.

#2 – WP-Paginate

WP-Paginate is a simple but flexible plugin which enhances a WordPress blog’s page navigation system. This plugin is easy to install and setup, and the default settings works just fine.

#3 – Paginator

Paginator is a very unique pagination plugin. The look is ultra awesome and it is such a fun experience scrolling through, instead of clicking through the pages!

#4 – Ajax Pagination (Twitter Style)

You should get this Ajax Pagination plugin if you are a Twitter fan. This plugin replaces WordPress default pagination behavior to the Twitter style using Ajax functionality. As soon as you click on the “Read more” button, the Ajax feature kicks and paging info is retrieved behind the scene. The user experience is great as the paging info seems to be loaded seamlessly.
