Using Drupal 7.

I've got several views (most of which listing articles which have been posted) that paginate and I'd like to add;

<link rel="prev" href="http://example.com/recent-articles?page=0" />
<link rel="next" href="http://example.com/recent-articles?page=2" />

links to them.

How do I do this? A module is preferred, changing the php files would preferably be avoided.

Things I've tried:

  • have you checked pager options in views Aug 7, 2014 at 10:11
  • Yes, as stated in the question - I've tried the views controls themselves. This includes the controls available in the specific view. Aug 7, 2014 at 10:14

You just need to override theme_pager_previous() and theme_pager_next() (easiest to do in your theme):

function MYTHEME_pager_previous($vars) {
  $text = $variables['text'];
  $element = $variables['element'];
  $interval = $variables['interval'];
  $parameters = $variables['parameters'];
  global $pager_page_array;
  $output = '';

  // If we are anywhere but the first page
  if ($pager_page_array[$element] > 0) {
    $page_new = pager_load_array($pager_page_array[$element] - $interval, $element, $pager_page_array);

    // Changes from core function start here.
    $attributes = array('rel' => 'prev');

    // If the previous page is the first page, mark the link as such.
    if ($page_new[$element] == 0) {
      $output = theme('pager_first', array('text' => $text, 'element' => $element, 'parameters' => $parameters, 'attributes' => $attributes));
    // The previous page is not the first page.
    else {
      $output = theme('pager_link', array('text' => $text, 'page_new' => $page_new, 'element' => $element, 'parameters' => $parameters, 'attributes' => $attributes));

  return $output;

And the same thing for pager_next.


It seems like there is a contrib module outside of D.O. that does the trick.


Have you already tried this one?


I had the similar issue of combining multiple views and give the pager so they all combined, and can accessible by the pager. I have asked previously on DA and here is the link just see the detail of answer and question you will automatically will get idea how you can do it.
