To page with LINQ you can use code such as the following (REF: http://blog.bluecog.co.nz/archives/2007/03/23/simple-paging-with-linq-for-sql/):

private IList<Contribution> GetWithinDays(int days, int skip){

  return ModeratedContributions

    .Where(c => c.AddedOn >= DateTime.Now.AddDays(days))
    .OrderByDescending(c => c.AddedOn)
    .Skip(skip)
    .Take(PageSize)
    .ToList();

}

The above LINQ code should work properly with SQL 2005 & later.



This following reference shows how to maintain the page index, etc. Labels in the markup are used, however it is possible to use ViewState to maintain these details.
