Tiffany Brown's Blog:
Simple pagination for arrays with PHP 5
December 15, 2008 @ 08:48:20

Tiffany Brown has a quick tutorial on a pagination method she's come up with for splitting out array contents over multiple pages.

While working on a recent project, I had to build a feature that displayed a list of files available in a directory. A simple way is just to use scandir() and a foreach loop to spit out a pretty list. There's a small problem though: long lists aren't all that user friendly. I decided instead to paginate the results. Here's one way to do it using PHP 5.

Her method reads in all of the (valid) files from the directory, assigns them to an array and uses the array_chunk function to split them up into groups on five. These groups can be easily looped through and displayed out as links easily.
