If you have not already installed a jQuery pagination plugin on your website, it is time to consider how you can benefit from using one – not only does it help your readers digest the content – you will get more clicks. Many large websites use the pagination technique to cut up content into smaller chunks and this way invite visitors to make more clicks.

It seems like it is a never-ending journey to create a website. Though you might be satisfied with the layout, the structure and the design, you can always make improvements. One of the features rarely installed from the beginning is jQuery pagination, which helps you to split pages and posts into multiple pages instead of having them all gathered in page. The need for a pagination plugin emerges when your content and online resources grow to a length where it seems like infinite scrolling for the visitor. By splitting your content into several pages you will not only improve your overall layout you will also enhance the time spend on your website as visitors are more likely to click for more posts than to scroll infinitely. There are other interesting options to make your content easy to navigate. One of the currently hot trends that I would like to mention is using metro style scripts for presenting content options. Another one is using accordion plugins for featuring multiple content items without taking up too much space.

I have found some of the best jQuery pagination plugins for this article, as you can see they are all slightly different in style so I am sure you will find a design that fits your requirements and layout ideas. Enjoy!



jPages is a client-side pagination plugin but it gives you a lot more features comparing to most of the other plugins for this purpose, such as auto page turn, key and scroll browse, showing items with delay, completely customizable navigation panel and also integration with Animate.css and Lazy Load. Apart from all its features, the main diference for the other pagination plugins is that with jPages you can create as many navigation panels as you want and you can choose exactly where to place them.The plugin is very unobtrusive and it won’t apply any extra styles to the items you are paginating. It will only create and insert the links inside the element(s) you are applying the plugin to, in order to turn them into navigation panel(s). Compatible with All Browsers and IE7+
