I'm not sure if I should keep making new topics for new issues?

But how do I get the pages to not be super duper long.

I want to go from this:

 

 

To this:

Just because you lost me as a friend, doesn't mean you gained me as an enemy. I'm bigger than that. I still want to see you eat, just not at my table.


Mmm without editing the core files, unfortunately you'll have to do some CSS hacks to change this. Some variant of nth-child should do it...

.page-item:nth-child(n+6) { display: none; }

That ought to do it. You will lose your next button but I don't think it'll matter too much...

Wait no that won't work either because it won't change which numbers are - see you should've hosted with me this would've been an easier fix WITH CORE ACCESS.

Anyway, so instead what you'll do is

.page-item.nomobile { display: none; }

It'll hide all of the page links and just leave you previous and next. That's the best I can do, sorry. I didn't account for people running threads that long.


Honey you can't dilute a war crime.

Actually hang on that's in the frame.template.php, you can get to that, I might be able to give you a code that restricts page display. Gimme til tomorrow to fiddle with it, I have a dentist appointment tomorrow morning so it may not be til afternoon BUT.

Alright, I broke my board for you (!!!! xDDD) but I have a solution for this. In Salerno, the page counts are in the core files in Ananke, and I got used to that working on Salerno, but they are not there in Athens! So you'll get into frame.template.php and find the function template_pages(). Delete the entire thing.

Replace it with this.

function template_pages()
{
      global $text, $page, $settings;
      
      if(empty($page->pages))
            return false;
                  
            $pages = $page->pages;
            $total = $pages->total;
            $limit = 5;
            
            $arry = '';
            $arry .= '
            <nav aria-label="'.$text->label->pages.'">
                  <ul class="pagination">
                        <li class="page-item"><span class="page-link">'.$text->label->pages.'</span></li>';
                        
                        if(!empty($pages->previous))
                              $arry .= '
                        <li class="page-item"><a class="page-link" href="'.$settings->url.'/'.$pages->href.'/'.$pages->previous.'">'.$text->label->previous.'</a></li>';
                        
                        if($pages >= 1 && $pages->current <= $total)
                        {
                              $counter = 1;
                              if($pages->current > ($limit/2))
                                    $arry .= '
                                    <li class="page-item'.(1 == $pages->current ? ' active' : '').'">
                                          <a class="page-link" href="'.$settings->url.'/'.$pages->href.'/1">1</a>
                                    </li>
                                    <li class="page-item">
                                          <a class="page-link">...</a>
                                    </li>';
                              
                              for($x=$pages->current; $x <= $total; $x++)
                              {
                                    if($counter < $limit)
                                          $arry .= '
                                          <li class="page-item'.($x == $pages->current ? ' active' : '').'">
                                                <a class="page-link" href="'.$settings->url.'/'.$pages->href.'/'.$x.'">'.$x.'</a>
                                          </li>';
                                          $counter++;
                              }
                              
                              if($pages->current < $pages->total - ($limit/2))
                                    $arry .= '
                                    <li class="page-item">
                                          <a class="page-link">...</a>
                                    </li>
                                    <li class="page-item'.(1 == $pages->current ? ' active' : '').'">
                                          <a class="page-link" href="'.$settings->url.'/'.$pages->href.'/'.$pages->total.'">'.$pages->total.'</a>
                                    </li>';
                        }
                        
                        if(!empty($pages->next))
                              $arry .= '
                        <li class="page-item"><a class="page-link" href="'.$settings->url.'/'.$pages->href.'/'.$pages->next.'">'.$text->label->next.'</a></li>';
            $arry .= '
                  </ul>
            </nav>';
            
            echo $arry;
}

This should give you this:

(See how I broke it? XDDD)

Oh nice! Thank you!

 

(And noooo! It seems like things have to break before they work, doesn't it?!)
