    Not sure what everyone else thinks but in my opinion the page numbers and the arrows to scroll through the pages in forums of BP look pretty week to me. There is a great plugin called page navi for wordpress which gives a nice strong naviagtion with numbers in boxes which looks great.

    Anyone know of any plugins like this for BP or how indeed it could be done?

    this Plugin looks like a great improvement to the current page-navigation.
    I do have around 2000 Groups and the navigation through the pages is quite difficult with the paging as we have at BP-Standard……

    Not sure this plugin works with BP, but I would suggest @andy to improve on this.

    Page Navi only works with wordpress and doesn’t alter the standard bP navigation unfortunately. If someone could make it work with BP too then that would be awesome.
    @andy any chance of the naviagtion being improved in this way?

    Actually I like the numbers and arrow as they are. You should be able to make all of the visual changes you like by tweaking the CSS. I viewed the source and here are the classes.

    page-numbers
    page-numbers dots
    page-numbers next

    So one example for your custom CSS could be

    ====================
    ====================

    .page-numbers {
    font-weight:bold;
    font-size: 1.2 em;
    }

    Cheers Paul, I’ll give it a try. I just really like the numbers in nice squares. Have you seen the page navi navigation?

    I think it would work great here in BP.

    Ah, squares I see. Try

    .page-numbers {
    font-weight:bold;
    font-size: 1.2 em;
    border: 1px;
    }

    Hey Paul, I can’t seem to get the borders to work. When I apply them, it seems to automatically add ‘none’ to the css line. Have you managed to get it to work at all?

    What file are you editing?

    also try using

    border-style:solid;

    no, this is not about CSS-changes, etc.
    Try having 1000 groups and then the numbering will not be handy anymore……

    Erich,
    I’ve got nearly 2000 and I think that’s why I’m struggling. I’d like nice big numbers in squares ideally running across the top of my forums and groups directories.

    is there a way to make the paging exactly the same as Google has its paging in the footer ?
    That would be the best solution.

    Anyone a code snippet outta ?

    Thx a lot !

    I’d also be interesting in using PageNavi with BP. :)
