Blog - Limit posts on page, next page
Hi everyone. I'm a bit stuck on limiting posts on a page for a blog, and then have next page(page numbers). See the simple script below.
Not ideal if I have 20 posts as all on one page.
Does anyone know how I can limit this to 10 on the page?, I would quite like to have some sort of next page links or page numbers after 10 posts?
Even better if someone knows a youTube video or some other good resource to help?
Don't knwo where to begin with this so any help most appriciated.

Paging if very very easy with MySQL!
You just have to use the LIMIT keyword in you query.
So something as simple as this:$Code:$pageSize = 10; // or any other size $pageNumber = $_REQUEST("pageNumber"); // get page number from GET or POST if ( ! isset($pageNumber) ) $pageNumber = 1; $startLimit = ( $pageNumber - 1 ) * $pageSize; $sql = "SELECT ... FROM ... ORDER BY ... LIMIT $startLimit, $pageSize"; ....
