Bootstrap 4 Pagination


Basic Pagination

If you have a web site with lots of pages, you may wish to add some sort of pagination to each page.

To create a basic pagination, add the .pagination class to an <ul> element. Then add the .page-item to each <li> element and a .page-link class to each link inside <li>:

Example

<ul class="pagination">
  <li class="page-item"><a class="page-link" href="#">Previous</a></li>
  <li class="page-item"><a class="page-link" href="#">1</a></li>
  <li class="page-item"><a class="page-link" href="#">2</a></li>
  <li class="page-item"><a class="page-link" href="#">3</a></li>
  <li class="page-item"><a class="page-link" href="#">Next</a></li>
</ul>

Active State

The .active class is used to "highlight" the current page:

Example

<ul class="pagination">
  <li class="page-item"><a class="page-link" href="#">Previous</a></li>
  <li class="page-item"><a class="page-link" href="#">1</a></li>
  <li class="page-item active"><a class="page-link" href="#">2</a></li>
  <li class="page-item"><a class="page-link" href="#">3</a></li>
  <li class="page-item"><a class="page-link" href="#">Next</a></li>
</ul>

Disabled State

The .disabled class is used for un-clickable links:

Example

<ul class="pagination">
  <li class="page-item disabled"><a class="page-link" href="#">Previous</a></li>
  <li class="page-item"><a class="page-link" href="#">1</a></li>
  <li class="page-item"><a class="page-link" href="#">2</a></li>
  <li class="page-item"><a class="page-link" href="#">3</a></li>
  <li class="page-item"><a class="page-link" href="#">Next</a></li>
</ul>

Pagination Sizing

Pagination blocks can also be sized to a larger or a smaller size:

Add class .pagination-lg for larger blocks or .pagination-sm for smaller blocks:

Example

<ul class="pagination pagination-lg">
  <li class="page-item"><a class="page-link" href="#">Previous</a></li>
  <li class="page-item"><a class="page-link" href="#">1</a></li>
  <li class="page-item"><a class="page-link" href="#">2</a></li>
  <li class="page-item"><a class="page-link" href="#">3</a></li>
  <li class="page-item"><a class="page-link" href="#">Next</a></li>
</ul>

<ul class="pagination pagination-sm">
  <li class="page-item"><a class="page-link" href="#">Previous</a></li>
  <li class="page-item"><a class="page-link" href="#">1</a></li>
  <li class="page-item"><a class="page-link" href="#">2</a></li>
  <li class="page-item"><a class="page-link" href="#">3</a></li>
  <li class="page-item"><a class="page-link" href="#">Next</a></li>
</ul>

Pagination Alignment

Use utility classes to change the alignment of the pagination:

Example

<!-- Default (left-aligned) -->
<ul class="pagination" style="margin:20px 0">
  <li class="page-item">...</li>
</ul>

<!-- Center-aligned -->
<ul class="pagination justify-content-center" style="margin:20px 0">
  <li class="page-item">...</li>
</ul>

<!-- Right-aligned -->
<ul class="pagination justify-content-end" style="margin:20px 0">
  <li class="page-item">...</li>
</ul>

Breadcrumbs

Another form for pagination, is breadcrumbs:

The .breadcrumb and .breadcrumb-item classes indicates the current page's location within a navigational hierarchy:

Example

<ul class="breadcrumb">
  <li class="breadcrumb-item"><a href="#">Photos</a></li>
  <li class="breadcrumb-item"><a href="#">Summer 2017</a></li>
  <li class="breadcrumb-item"><a href="#">Italy</a></li>
  <li class="breadcrumb-item active">Rome</li>
</ul>
