Hello! I was wondering if anyone had a good link to a good tutorial on pagination? I have a news page with posts on my site. I would like it to display 5 posts per page. I could do this statically by hand but it would be a good skill to learn for some other sites I am working on.

Hello MtnBeachBum,

To separate the news page into multiple pages with 5 posts per page, you will need to have it coded in a language that can support dynamic page creation,such as php. This is how blogs do it. These types of pages do not actually exist, but are created when requested by using a database to retrieve the content.

You may want to add a blog to your site specifically for your news section an an alternative to having to separate the posts by hand as you add more news items.

I hope this answers your question. If you have any more questions or information specific to the issue please leave a comment below so we can further assist you.

Best Regards,
Scott M
