hi everybody,
I am doing pagination.
if I set the limit to 5 and the no of result is 30, then 6 pages is shown as the overall page).
however, only the first 5 results is shown.
How should I change the code?
many thanks

You need to put a LIMIT in your mysql statement for it to do what you want it to do....

SELECT * FROM `your_table` LIMIT 0, 10; # << This will display the first 10 results from the database.

SELECT * FROM `your_table` LIMIT 5, 5; # << This will show records 6, 7, 8, 9, and 10

You should aim to do something like

$query = " SELECT count(*),
          MATCH(subject, learningArea, noofstudents, topic, ability) AGAINST ('$all $none $any' IN BOOLEAN MODE) 
          FROM lesson
       WHERE MATCH(subject, learningArea, noofstudents, topic, ability) AGAINST ('$all $none $any' IN BOOLEAN MODE) AND lesson.verified= 'yes'  LIMIT $offset, $limit" ;

## $offset should be something like $pageno * $limit
## $limit should obviously be how many you want to show per page

## $offset should be something like $pageno * $limit

OK, BUT i WANT ALL THE RESULT TO BE DISPLAYED ACCORDING TO HOW MANY PAGES I SPECIFY ;
$rows_per_page = 2;
$lastpage = ceil($numrows/$rows_per_page);

i don't understand what your trying to do sorry.

if you want tio display 5 results per page and be able to click through the pages you don't need $rows_per_page = 2;
$lastpage = ceil($numrows/$rows_per_page);

all you need to do is what i said in the previous post, then put $pageno = 1 in the url and then the "next" link should be $pageno=2 then $offset can be calculated by $offset = $pageno * $limit;

i would edit your code for you but it's a bit all over the place and my boss wouldn't be too happy if i spent half my day trying to fix it.

if you can't get this working i would usggest starting simple, starting fresh and starting with a simple query and home amde pagination system then add to it to get what you want.

maybe this is better to explain my problem.
Any suggestion please?
thank you


this is current output of my code

let say I set the row to be displayed per page is 5, and there are 9 results.
the following output is displayed. the output is perfect in the first page

Lesson Plans Matches

Lesson ID Learning area T
52 Computer Systems
53 Computer Systems
61 ICT and Society
75 Computer Systems
91 Computer Systems
FIRST PREV ( Page 1 of 2 ) NEXT LAST

When I click next, supposed the 2nd page will be displayed..
and this should be there( Page 2 of 2 ).
however in the 2nd page nothingis displayed and the page is displayed like this

No Results were found in this category.
FIRST PREV ( Page 1 of 0 ) NEXT LAST

it seems that the link doesn't function even the correct page nmber is sent to the URL
http://localhost/search/booleanview.php?pageno=2
