6 theme_pager_link($text, $page_new, $element, $parameters = array(), $attributes = array())
7 theme_pager_link($variables)

Returns HTML for a link to a specific query result page.


$variables: An associative array containing:

  • text: The link text. Also used to figure out the title attribute of the link, if it is not provided in $variables['attributes']['title']; in this case, $variables['text'] must be one of the standard pager link text strings that would be generated by the pager theme functions, such as a number or t('« first').
  • page_new: The first result to display on the linked page.
  • element: An optional integer to distinguish between multiple pagers on one page.
  • parameters: An associative array of query string parameters to append to the pager link.
  • attributes: An associative array of HTML attributes to apply to the pager link.
