We're excited to roll out a very highly requested feature on the Radium3 platform this week. It's blog pagination which allows you to automatically break up long lists of blog posts into separate pages with easy navigation. These "pages" are dynamic and don't count against your Radium3 website page totals, but they can provide a much easier way for visitors to navigate through your blog. Blog pagination is already live and available inside your Radium3 account!
How it Works
It's a pretty simple feature but one we know is going to be used on a large number of blogs across our platform, starting with our own Radium3 blog! You can turn it on by visiting the settings of any blog element on your site. If the blog element uses one of our "list" skins (list, list with body, or list with summary) you will see an additional section for pagination immediately below the skin setting. Simply check the box to enable pagination and enter the desired number of posts per page. The default is 20 posts per page and the maximum allowed is 1,000 posts per page.
The blog settings screen allows you to enable pagination.
Once that is set, your blog list will automatically be limited to the number of posts you specified and page navigation will automatically be added to the bottom of the list.
The page navigation automatically appears at the bottom of your blog list.
That's it! Blog pagination is super simple to implement but a really effective way to instantly improve the layout of your blog lists. If you want to see it in action, we've got it running on the Radium3 blog. Just visit this page and scroll to the bottom to see the new navigation.
