Pagination

Bootstrap pagination

Bootstrap pagination is a component used to indicate the existence of a series of related content across multiple pages and enables navigation across them.

We use a large block of connected links for our pagination, making links hard to miss and easily scalable—all while providing large hit areas. Pagination is built with list HTML elements so screen readers can announce the number of available links. You can use a wrapping <nav> element to identify it as a navigation section to screen readers and other assistive technologies.

In addition, as pages likely have more than one such navigation section, it’s advisable to provide a descriptive aria-label for the <nav> to reflect its purpose. For example, if the pagination component is used to navigate between a set of search results, an appropriate label could be aria-label="Search results pages".


Basic example


    
            <nav aria-label="Page navigation example">
              <ul class="pagination pg-blue">
                <li class="page-item"><a class="page-link">Previous</a></li>
                <li class="page-item"><a class="page-link">1</a></li>
                <li class="page-item"><a class="page-link">2</a></li>
                <li class="page-item"><a class="page-link">3</a></li>
                <li class="page-item"><a class="page-link">Next</a></li>
              </ul>
            </nav>
    
          

Material example


    
            <nav aria-label="Page navigation example">
              <ul class="pagination pg-blue">
                <li class="page-item ">
                  <a class="page-link" tabindex="-1">Previous</a>
                </li>
                <li class="page-item"><a class="page-link">1</a></li>
                <li class="page-item active">
                  <a class="page-link">2 <span class="sr-only">(current)</span></a>
                </li>
                <li class="page-item"><a class="page-link">3</a></li>
                <li class="page-item ">
                  <a class="page-link">Next</a>
                </li>
              </ul>
            </nav>
    
          


            $('li').click(function() {
              $(this).addClass('active').siblings().removeClass('active');
            });

          

Working with icons

Are you looking to use an icon or symbol in place of text for some pagination links? Be sure to provide proper screen reader support with aria attributes and the .sr-only utility.



        <nav aria-label="Page navigation example">
          <ul class="pagination pg-blue">
            <li class="page-item">
              <a class="page-link" aria-label="Previous">
                <span aria-hidden="true">&laquo;</span>
                <span class="sr-only">Previous</span>
              </a>
            </li>
            <li class="page-item"><a class="page-link">1</a></li>
            <li class="page-item"><a class="page-link">2</a></li>
            <li class="page-item"><a class="page-link">3</a></li>
            <li class="page-item">
              <a class="page-link" aria-label="Next">
                <span aria-hidden="true">&raquo;</span>
                <span class="sr-only">Next</span>
              </a>
            </li>
          </ul>
        </nav>

      

Disabled and active states

Pagination links are customizable for different circumstances. So you can use .disabled for links that appear un-clickable and .active to indicate the current page.

While the .disabled class uses pointer-events: none to try to disable the link functionality of <a>s, that CSS property is not yet standardized and doesn’t account for keyboard navigation. As such, you should always add tabindex="-1" on disabled links and use custom JavaScript to fully disable their functionality.



        <nav aria-label="Page navigation example">
          <ul class="pagination pg-blue">
            <li class="page-item disabled">
              <a class="page-link" tabindex="-1">Previous</a>
            </li>
            <li class="page-item"><a class="page-link">1</a></li>
            <li class="page-item active">
              <a class="page-link">2 <span class="sr-only">(current)</span></a>
            </li>
            <li class="page-item"><a class="page-link">3</a></li>
            <li class="page-item">
              <a class="page-link">Next</a>
            </li>
          </ul>
        </nav>

      

You can optionally swap out active or disabled anchors, or omit the anchor in the case of the prev/next arrows, to remove click functionality and prevent keyboard focus while retaining intended styles.



        <nav aria-label="Page navigation example">
          <ul class="pagination pg-blue">
            <li class="page-item disabled">
              <span class="page-link">Previous</span>
            </li>
            <li class="page-item"><a class="page-link">1</a></li>
            <li class="page-item active">
              <span class="page-link">
                2
                <span class="sr-only">(current)</span>
              </span>
            </li>
            <li class="page-item"><a class="page-link">3</a></li>
            <li class="page-item">
              <a class="page-link">Next</a>
            </li>
          </ul>
        </nav>

      

Sizing

Fancy larger or smaller pagination? Then add the classes .pagination-lg or .pagination-sm for additional sizes.



        <nav aria-label="Page navigation example">
          <ul class="pagination pg-blue pagination-lg">
            <li class="page-item disabled">
              <a class="page-link" tabindex="-1">1</a>
            </li>
            <li class="page-item"><a class="page-link">2</a></li>
            <li class="page-item"><a class="page-link">3</a></li>
          </ul>
        </nav>

      


        <nav aria-label="Page navigation example">
          <ul class="pagination pg-blue pagination-sm">
            <li class="page-item disabled">
              <a class="page-link" tabindex="-1">1</a>
            </li>
            <li class="page-item"><a class="page-link">2</a></li>
            <li class="page-item"><a class="page-link">3</a></li>
          </ul>
        </nav>

      

Alignment

You may change the alignment of pagination components with flexbox utilities.



        <nav aria-label="Page navigation example">
          <ul class="pagination pg-blue justify-content-center">
            <li class="page-item disabled">
              <a class="page-link" tabindex="-1">Previous</a>
            </li>
            <li class="page-item"><a class="page-link">1</a></li>
            <li class="page-item"><a class="page-link">2</a></li>
            <li class="page-item"><a class="page-link">3</a></li>
            <li class="page-item">
              <a class="page-link">Next</a>
            </li>
          </ul>
        </nav>

      


        <nav aria-label="Page navigation example">
          <ul class="pagination pg-blue justify-content-end">
            <li class="page-item disabled">
              <a class="page-link" tabindex="-1">Previous</a>
            </li>
            <li class="page-item"><a class="page-link">1</a></li>
            <li class="page-item"><a class="page-link">2</a></li>
            <li class="page-item"><a class="page-link">3</a></li>
            <li class="page-item">
              <a class="page-link">Next</a>
            </li>
          </ul>
        </nav>

      

Shape

The way pagination "feels" can be easily altered by changing its style from rectangular to circular. Simply add the .pagination-circle class to the list element.



        <nav aria-label="Page navigation example">
          <ul class="pagination pagination-circle pg-blue">
            <li class="page-item disabled"><a class="page-link">First</a></li>
            <li class="page-item disabled">
              <a class="page-link" aria-label="Previous">
                <span aria-hidden="true">&laquo;</span>
                <span class="sr-only">Previous</span>
              </a>
            </li>
            <li class="page-item active"><a class="page-link">1</a></li>
            <li class="page-item"><a class="page-link">2</a></li>
            <li class="page-item"><a class="page-link">3</a></li>
            <li class="page-item"><a class="page-link">4</a></li>
            <li class="page-item"><a class="page-link">5</a></li>
            <li class="page-item">
              <a class="page-link" aria-label="Next">
                <span aria-hidden="true">&raquo;</span>
                <span class="sr-only">Next</span>
              </a>
            </li>
            <li class="page-item"><a class="page-link">Last</a></li>
          </ul>
        </nav>
