    Nice tutorial thanks for the share.

  2. hai,

    Where the right place to put the pagination? & may i see the complete code?
    before i read this tutorial, i used wp_pagenavi() where, first step is loop the query post followed by call wp_pagenavi(); to show pagination. there is the same way to do in this tutorial?

    ITs Quite SImple Just put the code in header.php above the function wp_head() ,Find your content area( ids or classes) which contains all blog posts with the paginator then ,just change the script accordingly.

    With a closer look you can see that #content loads twice once the navigation has been clicked. Or am I doing something wrong?

    1. Ramandeep Singh says:

      Yes You are doing something wrong.You take your main content div,,which contains ,,,the all the posts along with the paginator.
      Take a look at this example:

      In the script you gonna grab the contents of the meat in the to the meat.Like

      load(link + ‘ #meat’);
      So the next page data will be loaded to the main meat wrapper.
      If in your wp theme the paginator and content are not wrapped by some div ,,then wrap them in a div and then load the next page/previous content in that div.

      I hope you understand what im tyring to say.

    This is a great snippet, but it doesn’t work with newer versions of jQuery as .live is depricated.
    Here’s a revised function I use that works:

    jQuery(function($) {
    $('#content').on('click', '#pagination a', function(e){
    var link = $(this).attr('href');
    $('#content').fadeOut(500, function(){
    $(this).load(link + ' #content').delay(1500).fadeIn(500, function(){
