jPaginator is a nifty jQuery plugin by Remy Elazare which combines pagination and scrolling in a simple user interface. Remy recently asked me if I would like to use it for something on Webdesigntuts+ and I figured it would be a great candidate for a style make-over.


Pagination often involves lots of page links, which themselves need navigating along before you can select them. jPaginator aims to improve the user experience of long pagination lists by offering a slider to animate links left and right. You can also use the control links either side of the pagination, or even rely on the good ol’ arrow keys.

Check out jPaginator in its raw state. Uncomplicated and perfectly usable, but let’s see if we can’t jazz it up a little. We’re going to use a few CSS3 techniques, that’s what we’re aiming to practice with this tut, but we’ll make sure that the resulting interface is at least usable for non-supportive browsers

Noteworthy CSS:
multiple backgrounds
:after selector
sprite sheet use

Browser Support (without workarounds):
FireFox 3.6
Safari 1.0
Chrome 1.3
Opera 10.5

New HTML Document

Let’s create a new document, then reference a couple of files which we’ll need to use the jPaginator plugin.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
        <meta charset="utf-8">
        <title>jPaginator - jQuery plugin</title>
        <meta name="description" content="">

        <script src="jPaginator-min.js"></script>
        <style type="text/css" media="all">
            @import url(jPaginator.css);
            @import url(custom.css);
