Site Tree Pagination

Pagination is the process of splitting the content of a web resource (Site Tree, blog, search results, etc.) into multiple pages, mostly to provide a higher user experience.

In SiteTree Pro, pagination is a performance-aware task carried out automatically as soon as a target limit of items has been exceeded. Each page of a multi-page Site Tree is trailed by a navigation menu inspired in behaviour to the one used by Google in its pages of search results.

The following screenshot shows an example of a paginated Site Tree styled by the Twenty Twenty theme and a few additional lines of CSS that control the appearance of the navigation menu:

The Number of Items Per Page

The number of items to show per page, controllable from the settings screen of the Site Tree, is accounted by SiteTree Pro more as a point of reference than a fixed limit, in fact the choice of whether or not to stick to this setting is usually influenced by the amount and type of content to show in the next page.
