View Full Version : Advanced pagination?

Hello! I am creating a little relatively simple virtual catalog, but frankly, I'm a coding novice (quite obviously) and could not figure out how to configure a regular pagination for my needs.

Here's the images:

#2 http://i47.tinypic.com/166fxv5.gif
#3 http://i49.tinypic.com/27xigec.gif


Basically, I would like the script to put 3 mysql outputs per each half, and if there's more than 6, create a new page and put the rest there. If there's let's say 7 outputs, I would like it it to use #1 & #3 as the backgrounds. If there's 13 outputs, I want it to use all three. I am expecting that it's going to require a transparent square to make the little folds work as a clickable to the next/previous page, in which case I'll make one.

If I left any details that you need to know to help me, just let me know, I'l be happy to post them. Help would be much appreciated!

Here's a script I found. I just cannot get it to work the way I wanted - could anybody help?


<?php
/*
Place code to connect to your DB here.
*/
include('config.php'); // include your code to connect to DB.

$tbl_name="usr_furnidb"; //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 $tbl_name WHERE cat = '$_GET[cat]'";
$total_pages = mysql_fetch_array(mysql_query($query));
$total_pages = $total_pages[num];

/* Setup vars for query. */
$targetpage = "test.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 * FROM $tbl_name WHERE cat = '$_GET[cat]' 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.
*/
$pagination = "";
if($lastpage > 1)
{
$pagination .= "<div class=\"pagination\">";
//previous button
if ($page > 1)
$pagination.= "<a href=\"$targetpage?page=$prev\"> previous</a>";
else

//pages

{
for ($counter = 1; $counter <= $lastpage; $counter++)

else

//next button

$pagination.= "<a href=\"$targetpage?page=$next\">next </a>";
else
$pagination.= "<span class=\"disabled\">next </span>";
$pagination.= "</div>\n";
}
?>

<?php
while($row = mysql_fetch_array($result))
{

echo("<img src='$row[url]'> <BR>$row[furni] - $row[price] Credits<BR><font color='gray'>
----------------------------</font><BR><BR>");

}
?>

<?=$pagination?>
