WordPress Pagination is a basic need for every websites using WordPress platform. There are many pagination plugin available. In this snippet I’m going to show you How to show WordPress Pagination without a Plugin.

Add the following to functions.php in your theme directory:

if ( ! function_exists( 'my_pagination' ) ) :
function my_pagination() {
global $wp_query;
$big = 999999999; // need an unlikely integer
echo paginate_links( array(
'base' => str_replace( $big, '%#%', esc_url( get_pagenum_link( $big ) ) ),
'format' => '?paged=%#%',
'current' => max( 1, get_query_var('paged') ),
'total' => $wp_query->max_num_pages
) );
}
endif;

Now you can call the function:

<?php my_pagination(); ?>
