Guys, I'm building a site and on the frontpage I included a pagination script. The script is working perfect, however, as I go from page to page within the script I seem to lose the frontpage. I was under the impression that the pagination script would only change the pages within the script and the frontpage would stand still. Any suggestions? Thanks

Are you talking about MS frontpage (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Microsoft_FrontPage)? :rolleyes:
(How can we say something about your code without seeing it?)

I'm sorry, no, it's in DW. Here's the pagination code. I made 2 cssdivs and on one of them I placed the code. when I went to test, both css divs showed but when I changed the page in the script the title css disappeared and I couldn't find it again.


<?php
/*
Place code to connect to your DB here.
*/
$username="root";
$password="root";
$database="testing";

$dbh=mysql_connect(localhost,$username,$password) or die ('I cannot connect to the database because: ' . mysql_error());
@mysql_select_db($database);
// include your code to connect to DB.

$tbl_name="news"; //your table name
// How many adjacent pages should be shown on each side?
$adjacents = 3;

/*
First get total number of rows in data table.
If you have a WHERE clause in your query, make sure you mirror it here.
*/
$query = "SELECT COUNT(*) as num FROM $tbl_name";
$total_pages = mysql_fetch_array(mysql_query($query));
$total_pages = $total_pages[num];

/* Setup vars for query. */
$targetpage = "pagination1.php"; //your file name (the name of this file)
$limit = 3; //how many items to show per page
$page = $_GET['page'];
if($page)
$start = ($page - 1) * $limit; //first item to display on this page
else
$start = 0; //if no page var is given, set start to 0

/* Get data. */
$sql = "SELECT subject FROM $tbl_name ORDER BY id DESC LIMIT $start, $limit";
$result = mysql_query($sql);

/* Setup page vars for display. */
if ($page == 0) $page = 1; //if no page var is given, default to 1.
$prev = $page - 1; //previous page is page - 1
$next = $page + 1; //next page is page + 1
$lastpage = ceil($total_pages/$limit); //lastpage is = total pages / items per page, rounded up.
$lpm1 = $lastpage - 1; //last page minus 1

/*
Now we apply our rules and draw the pagination object.
We're actually saving the code to a variable in case we want to draw it more than once.
*/
while($row = mysql_fetch_array($result)){
echo "".$row['subject']."<br />";
}
$pagination = "";
if($lastpage > 1)
{
$pagination .= "<div class=\"pagination\">";
//previous button
if ($page > 1)
$pagination.= "<a href=\"$targetpage?page=$prev\"> previous</a>";
else
$pagination.= "<span class=\"disabled\"> previous</span>";

//pages
if ($lastpage < 7 + ($adjacents * 2)) //not enough pages to bother breaking it up
{
for ($counter = 1; $counter <= $lastpage; $counter++)
{
if ($counter == $page)
$pagination.= "<span class=\"current\">$counter</span>";
else
$pagination.= "<a href=\"$targetpage?page=$counter\">$counter</a>";
}
}
elseif($lastpage > 5 + ($adjacents * 2)) //enough pages to hide some
{
//close to beginning; only hide later pages
if($page < 1 + ($adjacents * 2))
{
for ($counter = 1; $counter < 4 + ($adjacents * 2); $counter++)

$pagination.= "<a href=\"$targetpage?page=$lastpage\">$lastpage</a>";

//in middle; hide some front and some back
elseif($lastpage - ($adjacents * 2) > $page && $page > ($adjacents * 2))

$pagination.= "<a href=\"$targetpage?page=1\">1</a>";

echo "\n".$pagination;
?>

Thanks Char, I figured it out. I forgot to tell the script what page it was in...
