I am using {pagination_links} and the code is not rendering.

Here is my complete code for my channel entries:

<section class="blog">

{exp:channel:entries channel="journal" disable="categories|category-fields|member-data" limit="1"}
<article class="blog-summary m-all t-all d1-d4 ">
<time>{entry_date format="%Y-%m-%t"}</time>

<div class="m-all t1-t2 d1-d2">

<div class="m-all t1-t2 d3-d4">

{exp:channel_images:images entry_id="{entry_id}"}
<figure class="blog-image m-all t1-t2 d-all"><img src="{image:url:large}"  alt="{image:description}"></figure>

<hr class="m-all t1-t2 d-all m-clear t-clear d-clear">

<div class="m-all t1-t2 d-all m-clear t-clear d-clear">
        <a href="{pagination_url}">{pagination_page_number}</a>


And on the front end it renders like this:

{pagination_links} {page} {pagination_page_number} {/page} {/pagination_links}

Am I missing something?


  • What version of EE are you using? EE 2.4.0 introduced some changes to pagination so the syntax may be different. Jan 16, 2013 at 22:09
  • Sorry, that's 2.3.0, not 2.4.0. Jan 16, 2013 at 22:16
  • Currently using 2.5.2 Jan 16, 2013 at 22:33

You need to wrap the {pagination_links} tags with {paginate} tags:

            <a href="{pagination_url}">{pagination_page_number}</a>

See this comment in the docs (which do a crap-tacular job of documenting pagination, btw).


The code looks correct to me. I don't think it's a required paramater but try adding paginate='bottom' to your channel entries open tag. That would make it:

 {exp:channel:entries channel="journal" disable="categories|category-fields|member-data" limit="1" paginate="bottom"}
