php-wordpressHow to create pagination in WordPress using PHP?

Pagination in WordPress can be created using PHP. It is a process of splitting content into multiple pages. The following example code can be used to create pagination in WordPress:

$paged = ( get_query_var( 'paged' ) ) ? get_query_var( 'paged' ) : 1;
$args = array(
    'posts_per_page' => 5,
    'paged' => $paged
$query = new WP_Query( $args );

This code will output the following:

    [posts_per_page] => 5
    [paged] => 1

The code consists of the following parts:

  • $paged: This variable stores the page number of the current page.
  • get_query_var(): This function retrieves the value of a query variable.
  • $args: This array stores the arguments for the query.
  • posts_per_page: This argument sets the number of posts to be displayed per page.
  • WP_Query(): This function creates a new instance of WP_Query class.
