Bootstrap 5 Pagination

Create "Previous/Next" or "Next n" controls with Bootstrap's pagination classes.

Bootstrap's .pagination class does just what its name promises — it provides pagination.

Pagination is typically where you have navigation that links to multiple pages within a series. For example, search results that return many pages will have pagination that enables the user to navigate to the next page or even jump forward several pages.

Default Pagination

To create default pagination, add class="pagination" to the <ul> element that represents the list of pages.

Also add .page-item to each <li> element and .page-link to each <a> element.

Also, in the name of semantic HTML, it should be enclosed in a <nav> element with a descriptive aria-label to reflect its purpose.

Active State for Current Page

Add the .active class to the <li> element that represents the current page (the page that the user is currently on).

Disabling an Option

Add the .disabled class to the <li> element to disable that option.

Pagination Size

Add either the .pagination-lg or .pagination-sm to the <ul> element to increase or decrease the size of the pagination controls.
