How do I load any page other than the first page with Entity Field Query pager?

$query = new EntityFieldQuery();

$result = $query->entityCondition('entity_type', 'node')
  ->entityCondition('bundle', 'event')

This returns the first 4 nodes. If i have 12 nodes, how do I return page 2 nodes 4-8 or page 3 nodes 8-12.

The documentation states I can only pass $limit and $element. Have I missed something? What's the point of a pager that only loads the first page.

Here are some pointers:

  • The query looks fine
  • Try adding the parameter ?page=1 to your request and you should see different items. Page 0 is the one you see by default.
  • You need to display the pager object while building your output, like: $output['pager'] = array('#theme' => 'pager'); This will make the pager visible and allow users to click on back/next buttons to navigate through pages to see other items which are not on the current page.
