How To Add Pagination To Tumblr – Previous/Next Buttons Code

If you want to add pagination to your Tumblr, you just need to add a small code snippet, though there are several Previous/Next Code buttons to insert navigation right under your description menu, we’ll focus on the basic numbered pagination.

How to Add Pagination on Tumblr.

  1. Click on the customize theme button >> Edit HTML
  2. Look for the tag {Description} within your theme with Ctrl+F and once found paste the following code snippet right after it: (NOTE: You can indeed find more than one of these tags along your theme, hopwever, just one of theme is the one that is related to your description)

  3. <br/>
    <center>  <center>{block:NextPage}<a href="{NextPage}"><font size="20">&#171;</font></a>{/block:NextPage}
      {block:PreviousPage}  <a href="{PreviousPage}"><font size="20">&#187;</font></a>{/block:PreviousPage}<br>
      {block:NextPost}<a href="{NextPost}"><font size="20">&#171;</font></a>{/block:NextPost}
      {block:PreviousPost}  <a href="{PreviousPost}"><font size="20">&#187;</font></a>{/block:PreviousPost}

  4. Start “Updating Preview” until you see the arrows with the Previous/Next pagination showing up.

    Well, I just started tumblr yesterday, and I feel pretty accomplished! I’ve incorporated the Scrolling Title, the Infinite Scrolling, the Image Header/Title, and several other tweaks that I managed to do on my own. I’ll happily admit that it was this website that helped me accomplish that much!

    I’ve taken a java course before, but pretty much failed at that, so I feel pretty successful. heh.

    Anyway, what is a “Pagination?” Also, I think you could further help all the tumblrers by including pictures to illustrate the instructions/actions- many of the processes are naturally pretty confusing!

    Thank you so much! You techie guys/gals are awesome. :)

    Pagination is explained on the article you are posting the comment on.

    Wow, this is the first piece of code that I, as a total noob, can just copy and use and it works! Perfect! Thank yoU! Weird thing is that the links to other pages on my tumblr suddenly appear center-alligned after I put in this code. I checked the html but I didn’t change anything.

    The arrows are pointing the wrong way, but except from that it is working perfectly fine.

    The “first” page of my tumblr is still in infinite scroll mode… from the 2nd page it’s okay. What should I do? Thank you!
