Creating pagination is quite simple, you can easily do that by using Bootstrap, and JavaScript. However, in this article, we will use HTML and CSS to create pagination. 

Pagination is helpful when the website contains lots of content on a single page, and a single page will not look good with all those topics together. Few websites use the scroll to avoid pagination and vice versa. But the best looks come with the combination of scroll and pagination. As a developer, you can put a few contents on a page to make that page a little scrollable until it’s annoying. After that, you can use pagination that will leave those previous content and proceed to the new content page but the topic will be the same.

 

Creating Structure: In this section, we will just create the basic website structure of the pagination. Here, also we will attach the title attribute so the user can know what will be the content type on the next page of the pagination.

  • HTML code to make the structure: 

HTML




<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
 
<head>
    <title>

    </title>
</head>
 
<body>
    <center>
         
        <!-- Header and Slogan -->
        <h1>GeeksforGeeks</h1>
 
         
<p>A Computer Science Portal for Geeks</p>
 
 
        <!-- content in this Section -->
        <div class="content">
            <h3>Interview Experiences:</h3>
 
            <article>
                Share Your Questions/Experience or share
                your "Interview Experience", please mail
                your interview experience to
                review-team@geeksforgeeks.org. Also, to
                share interview questions, please add
                questions at Contribute a Question! You

            </article>
        </div>
 
        <!-- pagination elements -->
        <div class="pagination_section">
            <a href="#"><< Previous</a>
            <a href="#" title="Algorithm">1</a>
            <a href="#" title="DataStructure">2</a>
            <a href="#" title="Languages">3</a>
            <a href="#" title="Interview" class="active">4</a>
            <a href="#" title="practice">5</a>
            <a href="#">Next >></a>
        </div>
 
    </center>
</body>
 
</html>


Designing Structure: In the previous section, we have created the structure of the basic website where we are going to use CSS.

  • CSS code to look good the structure:

CSS




<style>
 
  /* header styling */
  h1 {
    color: green;
  }
 
  /* pagination position styling */
  .pagination_section {
    position: relative;
  }
 
  /* pagination styling */
  .pagination_section a {
    color: black;
    padding: 10px 18px;
    text-decoration: none;
  }
 
  /* pagination hover effect on non-active */
  .pagination_section a:hover:not(.active) {
    background-color: #031F3B;
    color: white;
  }
 
  /* pagination hover effect on active*/
 
  a:nth-child(5) {
    background-color: green;
    color: white;
  }
 
  a:nth-child(1) {
    font-weight: bold;
  }
 
  a:nth-child(7) {
    font-weight: bold;
  }
 
  .content {
    margin: 50px;
    padding: 15px;
    width: 700px;
    height: 200px;
    border: 2px solid black;
  }
 
</style>


Combining the HTML and CSS Code: This is the final code that is the combination of the above two sections. 

HTML




<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
 
<head>
    <title>

        h1 {

        }
 
        /* pagination position styling */
        .pagination_section {
            position: relative;
        }
 
        /* pagination styling */
        .pagination_section a {
            color: black;
            padding: 10px 18px;
            text-decoration: none;
        }
 
        /* pagination hover effect on non-active */
        .pagination_section a:hover:not(.active) {
            background-color: #031F3B;
            color: white;
        }
 
        /* pagination hover effect on active*/
 
        a:nth-child(5) {
            background-color: green;
            color: white;
        }
 
        a:nth-child(1) {
            font-weight: bold;
        }
 
        a:nth-child(7) {
            font-weight: bold;
        }
 
        .content {
            margin: 50px;
            padding: 15px;
            width: 700px;
            height: 200px;
            border: 2px solid black;
        }
    </style>
</head>
