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.
