Pagination

Pagination affords navigation between pages of content, and it highlights which page is currently in view.

Overview

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. 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".

Example

To use paginations, create a <nav> wrapper with <ul> of class .pagination

Each <li> item should have a class of .page-item

Each <a> inside each list item should have a class of .page-link

<nav aria-label="Page navigation example">
  <ul class="pagination m-0">
    <li class="page-item">
      <a class="page-link" href="#" aria-label="Previous">
        <i class="modus-icons" aria-hidden="true">chevron_left</i>
      </a>
    </li>
    <li class="page-item">
      <a class="page-link" href="#">
        <i class="modus-icons" aria-hidden="true">more_horizontal</i>
      </a>
    </li>
    <li class="page-item">
      <a class="page-link" href="#">
        3
      </a>
    </li>
    <li class="page-item">
      <a class="page-link" href="#">
        4
      </a>
    </li>
    <li class="page-item active" aria-current="page">
      <a class="page-link" href="#">5 <span class="sr-only">(current)</span></a>
    </li>
    <li class="page-item">
      <a class="page-link" href="#">
        6
      </a>
    </li>
    <li class="page-item">
      <a class="page-link" href="#">
        7
      </a>
    </li>
    <li class="page-item">
      <a class="page-link" href="#">
        <i class="modus-icons" aria-hidden="true">more_horizontal</i>
      </a>
    </li>
    <li class="page-item">
      <a class="page-link" href="#" aria-label="Next">
        <i class="modus-icons" aria-hidden="true">chevron_right</i>
      </a>
    </li>
  </ul>
</nav>

Disabled and active states

Use .disabled to make links appear un-clickable and .active to indicate the current page.

<nav aria-label="Page navigation example">
  <ul class="pagination">
    <li class="page-item disabled">
      <a class="page-link" href="#" tabindex="-1" aria-disabled="true">Disabled</a>
    </li>
    <li class="page-item"><a class="page-link" href="#">1</a></li>
    <li class="page-item active" aria-current="page">
      <a class="page-link" href="#">2 (active) <span class="sr-only">(current)</span></a>
    </li>
    <li class="page-item"><a class="page-link" href="#">3</a></li>
    <li class="page-item"><a class="page-link" href="#">4</a></li>
  </ul>
</nav>

Large

Add .pagination-lg to your .pagination for a larger size.

<nav aria-label="Page navigation example">
  <ul class="pagination pagination-lg">
    <li class="page-item disabled">
      <a class="page-link" href="#" tabindex="-1" aria-disabled="true">Disabled</a>
    </li>
    <li class="page-item">
      <a class="page-link" href="#" aria-label="Previous">
        <i class="modus-icons" aria-hidden="true">chevron_left</i>
      </a>
    </li>
    <li class="page-item">
      <a class="page-link" href="#">
        <i class="modus-icons">more_horizontal</i>
      </a>
    </li>
    <li class="page-item"><a class="page-link" href="#">1</a></li>
    <li class="page-item active" aria-current="page">
      <a class="page-link" href="#">2 <span class="sr-only">(current)</span></a>
    </li>
    <li class="page-item"><a class="page-link" href="#">3</a></li>
    <li class="page-item">
      <a class="page-link" href="#">
        <i class="modus-icons">more_horizontal</i>
      </a>
    </li>
    <li class="page-item">
      <a class="page-link" href="#" aria-label="Next">
        <i class="modus-icons" aria-hidden="true">chevron_right</i>
      </a>
    </li>
  </ul>
</nav>

Small

Add .pagination-sm to your .pagination for a smaller size.

<nav aria-label="Page navigation example">
  <ul class="pagination pagination-sm">
    <li class="page-item disabled">
      <a class="page-link" href="#" tabindex="-1" aria-disabled="true">Disabled</a>
    </li>
    <li class="page-item">
      <a class="page-link" href="#" aria-label="Previous">
        <i class="modus-icons">chevron_left</i>
      </a>
    </li>
    <li class="page-item">
      <a class="page-link" href="#">
        <i class="modus-icons">more_horizontal</i>
      </a>
    </li>
    <li class="page-item"><a class="page-link" href="#">1</a></li>
    <li class="page-item active" aria-current="page">
      <a class="page-link" href="#">2 <span class="sr-only">(current)</span></a>
    </li>
    <li class="page-item"><a class="page-link" href="#">3</a></li>
    <li class="page-item">
      <a class="page-link" href="#">
        <i class="modus-icons">more_horizontal</i>
      </a>
    </li>
    <li class="page-item">
      <a class="page-link" href="#" aria-label="Next">
        <i class="modus-icons" aria-hidden="true">chevron_right</i>
      </a>
    </li>
  </ul>
</nav>
