Pagination of MySQL Query Results


3 of 4

Query and Results
 //This is your query again, the same one... the only difference is we add $max into it
$data_p = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM topsites $max") or die(mysql_error());
//This is where you display your query results
while($info = mysql_fetch_array( $data_p ))
Print $info['Name'];
echo "<br>";
echo "<p>";
// This shows the user what page they are on, and the total number of pages
echo " --Page $pagenum of $last-- <p>";
// First we check if we are on page one. If we are then we don't need a link to the previous page or the first page so we do nothing. If we aren't then we generate links to the first page, and to the previous page.
if ($pagenum == 1)
echo " <a href='{$_SERVER['PHP_SELF']}?pagenum=1'> <<-First</a> ";
echo " ";
$previous = $pagenum-1;
echo " <a href='{$_SERVER['PHP_SELF']}?pagenum=$previous'> <-Previous</a> ";
//just a spacer
echo " ---- ";
//This does the same as above, only checking if we are on the last page, and then generating the Next and Last links
if ($pagenum == $last)
else {
$next = $pagenum+1;
echo " <a href='{$_SERVER['PHP_SELF']}?pagenum=$next'>Next -></a> ";
echo " ";
echo " <a href='{$_SERVER['PHP_SELF']}?pagenum=$last'>Last ->></a> ";
This code is explained further on the next page.
