why is it no matter how hard i try the switch in my head wont go on when i try to study and understand how pagination works?
i keep trying to ask my self how the formulas were figured out and stuff like that
my head starts to to hurt lol
am i the only one? lol
Where are you having problems? To determine how many pages you need, you need 2 variables: the total number of "items" (be it entries in a database or just some records in an array), and the number of "items" you wish to display on a page. The number of resulting pages will be total_number_of_items / number_of_items_per_page. It's just simple math...nothing complicated.
Here's a simple hands-on example:
I had a hard time myself before. Then I created my own independant paginationclass(meaning it isn't locked to pagination of dbresults, but it can paginate anything), and once I saw - and worked with - the formulas, it all became clear.
You should read it and see if anything becomes clearer.
