check out maximum_pages and maximum_page_buttons
after maximum_pages have been reached you can still next through it, but
it doesn't iterate the paging.
It would be nice if page numbering could function as follows:
when maximum_page_buttons is greater than maximum_pages and a user clicks
'next page' when they're on the last page of maximum_page_buttons that the
paging would adjust accordingly. For example:
A user is on page 20 and hits 'next'
The paging now displays pages 2-21 instead of 1-20. If they hit next
again, the paging says 3-22 and so on. Thus, maximum_page_buttons is
defined as a range within maximum_pages. In other words, if it could
function similarly to google which allows for usable traversing of massive
result sets. I understand that this might complicate things on the
configuration parameters that affect display (like page_number_text and
no_page_number_text) but that seems like a tradeoff worth exploring.
Personally, I'd be happy with a configuration for page_number_text as follows:
to have txt-based rendering of page numbers
to dictate some automatically generated img src based on a naming convention rather than the
hard-coded configuration that currently exists.
