Pagination Element

24/08/2020

As part of Avada Layouts, available in Avada 7.0, we have created a series of Dynamic Elements that help generate content in the Content Layout Section of a Layout. These are called Layout Section Elements. In this document, we are looking at the Pagination Element.

IMPORTANT NOTE: The Layout Section Elements are only available when editing Content Layout Sections in Avada Layouts.

How To Use The Pagination Element

The Pagination Element allows you to place pagination anywhere in a Content Layout Section, in any Single Post, Portfolio or Custom Post Type Layout. The Pagination Element is unique, in that it can be placed twice in a Content Layout Section, whereas the other Layout Section Elements can only be placed once. Of course, you can also use the full range of Design Elements when building your Layout, and combine them with the Layout Section Elements.

When you go to add an Element in a Content Layout Section, the Element dialog opens in a new tab called Layout Section Elements. This is where you will find the Pagination Element.

The Pagination Element can be placed anywhere in you Layout Section, but in most cases you will want to place the Element at the very top, and/or the very bottom of the Content Element. There is a range of options with the element about how it displays. See the options panels below for specific details on that. This element does not include the Load More or Infinite Scroll options, as these would be found in the Blog or Portfolio Elements. This is designed for Single Post Layouts where you require text based pagination at the top and/or the bottom of your post content.

See below, for an example of the Pagination Element in a Single Post Layout, displaying just below the Content Element on the Taxi Demo. Follow this link for a live example.

Element Options

Location: The edit screen within each Element.

You can deploy the Layout Section Elements only once within each Layout. Within each of the Elements, you will see a tab or tabs that house an array of options that make it possible for you to configure each Element independently, and greatly enhance your flexibility and creative options.

Note: Please note that the displayed options screens below show ALL the available options for the element. If you have Avada’s Option Network Dependencies turned on, you will only see options relevant to your selections, and so the options screen may look somewhat different.
