After trying to get Joomla Page Navigation for 2.5 to work and failing, I came across this plugin which does the job.

The only downsides to this plugin are 2.

1. I am not able to set Previous and Next "pre-text", I can only set one word to fit both. This has drawbacks if a series of articles flows like chapters. It would be nice to select "Next" for next "chapter" and "Previous" for the previous chapter.

2. Styling the plugin is difficult. I tried to apply CSS styling as provided by the developer in the joomla.css and template.css files but the styling fails to show. It would be great to have an English guide on how to apply CSS styling. Could very well be that I am using it in the wrong place, but after looking with Firebug and applying the CSS provided by the developer here in the reviews section it still does not work. I tried to find a forum for support but I can't read German to find the forum.

At any rate, it serves the purpose I need in a basic form and I am glad to have found this component!

Many thanks for your suggestions. I will put separate pre-texts in the next version and try to release it over the weekend.

I will also write some documentation regarding the css styling of the links. The page navigation has changed from Joomla 1.5 to 2.5 so the css styling described for 1.5 does not work in 2.5. For 2.5 put your styling in the classes

ul.pagenav li.pagenav-prev { ... }
ul.pagenav li.pagenav-next { ... }

Have been trying to get this to work on a 2.5 site.

Can't get it to show.

Have tried disabling the standard page nav module - no effect.

The navigation is shown under the same circumstances where the native Joomla navigation appears.

Hi, I really like this plugin and need it to work since I have pages in joomla 1.5 and planning to upgrade to newer version.

I have installed the plugin and enabled it, as instructed, but nothing shows on my articles. I was wondering, since it's plugin, is there some code I should put in articles to show navigation?

Thank you.

There is no code needed in the articles. The navigation is shown under the same circumstances where the native Joomla navigation appears. To test it, enable both plugins and see what happens.

The articles have to be arranged in a "browsable" manner, i.e. through a menu structure or blog architecture.

Easy out-of-the-box installation and use. Total no-brainer! Loved having the links at the top and bottom.

Would just like to know how to get the 2 lines above and below the links as shown in the demo. Other than that it's still a 5*!

You can get the lines with simple css styling. The navigation links are placed within a table with the css class "pagenav". Just add the following lines to your Joomla template's css file:

table.pagenav {
border-bottom: 1px solid #CCCCCC;
border-top: 1px solid #CCCCCC;
margin: 1em 0;
width: 100%;

You can do even more styling for the next and prev link texts by modifying the css classes "pagenav_prev" and "pagenav_next".
