Hi folks,

I have a small Paging problem, was wondering if anyone could help me out with.

I have a blog that I need to page after a set number of blogs.

The Next and Previous links work fine and so does the Page number Nav. However, my page number Nav starts at 0, not 1 like it normally should.

IE

Prev 0 1 2 3 4 Next

The code I'm using was authored by www.plus2net.com

<?php

  //  If you use this code with a different page ( or file ) name then change this
  $page_name="futuretrips.php"; 

  // To take care global variable if OFF
  $start=$_GET['page'];
  
  // This variable is set to zero for the first page
  if(!($start > 0)) {
    $start = 0;
  }

  $eu = ($start - 0);                

  // No of records to be shown per page.
  $limit = 4;

  $this1 = $eu + $limit; 
  $back = $eu - $limit; 
  $next = $eu + $limit; 

  // Find out the number of records in our table.
  // Use this to break the pages
  $query2=" SELECT blog_ID FROM tblBlog ";
  $result2=mysql_query($query2);
  echo mysql_error();
  // The variable nume will store the total number of records in the table
  $nume=mysql_num_rows($result2);


  // Start executing the query with variables $eu and $limit set at the top of the page
  $query=" SELECT * FROM tblBlog limit $eu, $limit ";
  $result=mysql_query($query);
  

  // Display the returned records
  while($noticia = mysql_fetch_array($result)) {

?>

<div class="blog_title">
  <h2>
    <?php echo $noticia[blog_Title] ?>
  </h2>
</div>
<span class="blog_subinfo">
  <span class="blog_author">
    by $noticia[blog_Author]
  </span>
  <span class="blog_timestamp">
    <?php echo $noticia[blog_Date] ?> <?php echo $noticia[blog_Time] ?>
  </span>
  <div class="barra-footer-clearboth">
  </div>
</span>
<p class="blog_body">
  <?php echo $noticia[blog_Body] ?>
</p>
	
<?php

  }

  // End of displaying the table with records

  // Variables set for advance paging
  // This should be more than $limit and set to a value for which links to be selected
  $p_limit=8;

  // To take care global variable if OFF
  $p_f=$_GET['p_f'];
  // This variable is set to zero for the first page
  if(!($p_f > 0)) {
    $p_f = 0;
  }

  $p_fwd=$p_f+$p_limit;
  $p_back=$p_f-$p_limit;

  // End of variables for advance paging
  
  // Start the bottom links with Prev and next link with page numbers

?>

<span class="body-page-container">
  <span class="body-page-left">
    <?php
	  if($p_f<>0){
	    print "<a href='$page_name?page=$p_back&p_f=$p_back'>Previous $p_limit</a>";
      }
	  // if our variable $back is equal to 0 or more then only we will display the link to move back
      if($back >=0 and ($back >=$p_f)) {
	    print "<a href='$page_name?page=$back&p_f=$p_f'>Previous</a>";
      }
	?>
  </span>
  <span class="body-page-middle">
    Page 
    <?php
	  // Let us display the page links at center. We will not display the current page as a link
      for($i=$p_f;$i < $nume and $i<($p_f+$p_limit);$i=$i+$limit) {
	    if($i <> $eu) {
		  $i=$i+$p_f; echo "<a href='$page_name?page=$i&p_f=$p_f'>$i</a>";
		}
		else {
		  // Current page is not displayed as link
		  echo "$i";
		}
	  }
	?>
  </span>
  <span class="body-page-right">
    <?php
      // If not on the last page then Next link will be displayed. Check that here
      if($this1 < $nume and $this1 <($p_f+$p_limit)) { 
        print "<a href='$page_name?page=$next&p_f=$p_f'>Next</a>";
      } 
      if($p_fwd < $nume) {
        print "<a href='$page_name?page=$p_fwd&p_f=$p_fwd'>Next $p_limit</a>";
      }
	?>
  </span>
  <div class="footer-clearboth">
  </div>
</span>

Thanks in advance, this has been driving me bonkers!

Funny how a solutions comes to you soon after a call for help.

I'll share it for future reference, maybe someone will pick it up on google at some point.

I made a change in the middle container where the page numbering sits.

Bold points are the changes I made.

<span class="barra-followup-body-page-middle">
    Page 
    <?php
	  // Let us display the page links at center. We will not display the current page as a link
[B]$i=0;
$l=1;[/B]
      for($i=$p_f;$i < $nume and $i<($p_f+$p_limit);$i=$i+$limit) {
	    if($i <> $eu) {
		  $i=$i+$p_f; echo "<a href='$page_name?page=$i&p_f=$p_f'>[B]$l[/B]</a>";
		}
		else {
		  // Current page is not displayed as link
		  echo "[B]$l[/B]";
		}
		[B]$l=$l+1;[/B]
	  }
	?>
  </span>
