If you're like me, getting the details of your ning network just right is an ongoing process.  For example, I think that the default pagination styles attached to ning themes are BOR-ING.  So I'm going to quickly show you how to add a little style to your pagination and make your pages just a little more unique.

First, for those who don't know, this is pagination

 

 

What You will Be Making is This on the right:

 

You can see the finished product on any page on my network with pagination-for example, the Surveying Photos Page as pictured to the right.

 

 

 

 

Let's begin.  First you want to find a style that you like and you can find these all over the web.  !'ve found that some offered by blogs which help with blogger design have pretty good ones.  For this exercise, try picking one of the many styles from this page.  I used this one: Meneame Style   You can see from the image below that there are plenty to choose from:

You'll want to download the CSS style sheet for the style you want and if there is an image involved grab that too.  If there is an image, you'll want to upload it to a blog post on your network and paste that image URL into the CSS style sheet wherever you see something like url:(image/whatever.jpg)

 

 


Next, you're gonna want to look at the style sheet and find any instance where it says something similar to   div.pagination  and replace every instance of div.    with  ul.  because what you are changing is not the div itself, but the unordered list.

 

Finally, you're gonna want to copy and paste the entire CSS from the  stylesheet and add it to the bottom of your Advanced CSS in dashboard.

 

Bonus Tip:  If you want to style it even further, head over to the CSS3Generator and use the Transform property.  Play around with that a little bit and grab the new code it generates.  Place that code within the ul.pagination hover state and you will get something similar to what you see on bottom of LSU Photos page.

 

 

Good luck!

  • Freaking brilliant! Thanks Justin! Just installed it on my network.

  • Hi justin,

    Have come up with the following code to place in appearance>advanced (at the end) but it is not working. What am I missing? Thanks for your help.

    • Maybe  because you have a different theme, but I don' have any of that other code between -moz-transform and (0deg,0deg).

      • Hey Thunder thanks for taking a look. I've taken all the transform code out and it still doesn't display the new "style". I'll go back and re-copy and place the code~ all fresh!

        Thanks, 

        James
