Page navigation element

A page navigation element provides navigation controls that are used to navigate through a set of results generated by menus, navigators and search elements only. To use a page navigation element, you must create a page navigation component. You cannot add a page navigation element to authoring templates, sites, site areas, or content items.

A page navigation element can generate two kinds of page navigation controls:

A page navigation element can combine both shuttle and paging controls, as in the following example.

First Previous Continuation Page Numbers Continuation Jump to page Next Last Page size

When rendered the page navigation element might look like this:

<< < ... 4,5,6 ... Go to page: > >> Items to display: 10 | 50 | All

Using the page navigation element in a remote rendering portlet

The page navigation element will not work when rendered in a remote rendering portlet that is configured to receive no links from other portlets. You must configure a remote rendering portlet to receive links either from "This portlet" or "Other portlets and this portlet" to use a page navigation element.
