Hey guys, I am creating a way to display products on a page with page numbering, I am aiming that each page will contain the next amount of products. For testing purposes, I have 14 products in my table and I have set the items per page to 1 so that generates 14 pages, but when I click on a different page it just always displays the same product. Here is my code:

if($main == go){

			
			if (isset($_GET["page"])) { 
			
			$page  = $_GET["page"]; 
			
			} 
			else { 
			$page=1; 
			$_GET["page"] = 1; 
			} 
			$start_from = ($page-1) * $pageitems; 
			
			
			$pageitems = 1;
			
							//SQL to calculate amount of pages need for product listing
				$sql2 = "SELECT COUNT(productID) AS 'rowcount' FROM products";
				$stmt2 = sqlsrv_query( $conn, $sql2,array(), array( "Scrollable" => SQLSRV_CURSOR_KEYSET ));
				if(!$stmt2) 
				{
					die( print_r( sqlsrv_errors(), true));
				}	while( $row2 = sqlsrv_fetch_array( $stmt2)){$total_records = $row2['rowcount'];}

				$total_pages = ceil($total_records / $pageitems);

						
			
			
			$sql = "SELECT productID, productName, category, range, price, picture, description, ROW_NUMBER() OVER(ORDER BY category) AS rownumber FROM products "; 


			//Check SQL Query		
			$stmt = sqlsrv_query( $conn, $sql,array(), array( "Scrollable" => SQLSRV_CURSOR_KEYSET ));
			if(!$stmt) 
			{
				die( print_r( sqlsrv_errors(), true));
			}

				while( $row = sqlsrv_fetch_array( $stmt)) 
										{							
								$rownumber = $row['rownumber'];
								$end_at = $pageitems + $start_from;
								
								if (($rownumber>$start_from)&&($rownumber<=$end_at))
								{
								
								echo '<p class="productsContent">'.$row['productName'];
								echo '<br/>'.$row['category'];
								echo '<br/>'.$row['range'];
								echo '<br/>&pound;'.$row['price'];
								echo '<br/><br/><a href="products.php?productID='.$row['productID'].'"><img  src="' . $row['picture'] .'" /></a>';
								echo '<br/><br/></p>';
											}
								
							}	

		
						for ($i=1; $i<=$total_pages; $i++) { 
						echo "<a href='products.php?main=go&page=".$i."'>".$i."</a> "; 
						} 
						
			}
			

Open in new window


I have almost finished this, but just cant figure out the last part, I feel this would have been easier using the LIMIT function, but this is not supported in SQL Server.

If anyone can help out that would be great.


Thanks!

The canonical article about pagination is from SitePoint.  Although it is almost five years old it remains one of the most clearly written examples.  Comes complete with a class you can install and extend!
