Hi, I am using this function for pagination – http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/paginate_links#Default_Usage The problem is there a way to customize it? What I mean, is there a way to add for the pagination links?

You might need to clarify your question a bit but…

You can customize the pagination using the different arguments. For example, by giving the arguments ‘prev_text’ and ‘next_text’ to the paginate_links function like so :

<?php echo paginate_links( array( 'prev_text' => 'Previous page', 'next_text' => 'Next page' ) ); ?>

You will customize the previous page and next page text. If you look at the codex you will see what the other arguments do. The code above will generate something like this:

Previous page 4 5 6 7 8 Next page

Smartik are you serious? There is a default WP function to do this – http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/paginate_links#Default_Usage that I have already mentioned before. I am asking how could I add a spans to the links.

Yeah, shame on him for giving you a link to a more advanced and easier to modify pagination. @Smartik you should be ashamed.

Yeah, paginate_links has many shortcomings when compared to Kriesi’s pagination function. There are good reasons why theme authors still prefer kriesi’s pagination. The paginate links function was not updated since wp 2.0. It’s very limited.

Why? Because I like kriesi pagination? And to be honest I did not know that it’s a default option available, and so far I have worked only with kriesi pagination and wp-pagenavi. + a lot of authors from TF use those scripts. Do not judge me. ;)

English isn’t your first language, is it? Kriesi’s pagination rules, we use it in all our themes.
