Simple & Intuitive Pagination with Hover Effects

Our first example shows how some basic hover effects can vastly improve standard pagination. The ua-smooth underline that follows your cursor makes for a much more intuitive experience. Plus, the entire menu is very easy to read. This is a simple way to help users.

Live Count Pagination

One of the most frustrating parts of pagination can be how menus handle a large number of pages. This snippet uses jQuery to show adjacent page numbers as you click. It’s a much easier path to follow.

The Kitchen Sink Pagination

This is an exciting concept. Designed to be both responsive and more accessible, this pagination UI contains multiple ways to navigate — including via a keyboard. The timeline-like bar at the top clearly labels the current page and offers a great overview of everything available.

Let the Yeti Guide You

They say good help is hard to find. But this snippet provides the help of a Yeti (at least, the hand of a Yeti) when clicking through the page numbers. While Yetis may not fit with your motif, this is an example of how we can add an element of fun (and surprise).

Pagination Enhanced for Mobile Screens

On smaller screens, pagination can be terribly difficult to use. Navigation items are often too small and too hard to read. This snippet provides a great alternative for mobile devices. Each item is larger as the navigation stretches vertically. The result is that mobile users can get around without having to squint their eyes or zoom in.

Pagination with No Numbers

Sometimes, we don’t need to number each item within the pagination. This example is attractively minimal with the use of dots rather than numerals. It’s a good solution for slideshows or navigating multiple panels of content.

Touch Friendly Pagination

Mobile UI works best when it reacts to a user’s touch. Here we have pagination that allows the user to swipe to get to the next or previous item. This little convenience can make all the difference when it comes to usability.

Combining Pagination with Infinite Scrolling

Designers often use infinite scrolling to replace pagination. But this is a neat concept of how they can be combined. The frustration of infinite scroll is that it can be difficult to go back and find that one particular item. This snippet adds new page numbers to the navigation as you continue to scroll down, making returning to the previous page a little easier.
