One of the tell-tale signs of a WordPress powered website is the “next” and “previous” links at the bottom of the homepage and other inner pages for navigation. By default most WordPress themes show 10 posts per page (and the homepage if it’s blog style). You click “older” or “previous” posts depending on the theme setup and see 10 more posts. Then click again for 10 more posts. If you want to go back 100 pages in the archive you have to click through 10 pages of results.
Why not have “google style” pagination in WordPress? You know, the 1, 2, 3… style links where you can jump 5 or 10 pages back if you want? There are great plugins that can do that for you – the only problem is you might have to edit / add a little bit of theme code to get that done. If you’re not yet skilled at hacking your own WordPress theme – you might want to check out this quick video of how to get it done!
