The option pages

The option page is devided into three tabs (postbar, multipagebar, commentbar) for the three different pagebar types. You need to have Javascript enabled in your browser for the option page to work! They all share some basic settings and got some specific settings, explained in the next chapters.

    Number of links displayed on the left of the bar. If this number is 0 no left links are displayed at all.

  • Center
    The number of links displayed in the middle of the bar. This should be an odd number. If an even number is entered, pagebar will display one more link than entered. If this number is 0 no left links are displayed at all.

+Right
Number of links displayed on the right of the bar. if this number is 0 no right links are displayed at all.

  • Leading text

  • First page
    Text to be displayed for the first page.

  • Last page
    Text to be displayed for the last page.

  • Connector
    Text to be displayed between the left/center and center/right area. If left empty, “…” is displayed.

  • Previous
    Text to be displayed for the link to the previous page. If left empty, “<” is displayed. You can additionally define if the Previous link is always displayed, never displayed or if it is done automatically.

  • Next
    Text to be displayed for the link to the previous page. If left empty, “>” is displayed. You can additionally define if the Next link is always displayed, never displayed or if it is done automatically.

  • Tooltip text
    Text to display in tooltips. You can use the tokens.

  • Display
    Actually display tooltips?

  • Stylesheet
    You can define the necessary CSS definitions in two places:

    • in the style.css file of the current theme
    • in a seperate file in the current theme’s directory. The name of the file can be defined here.

— Specific pagebar settings —

  • Automatic insertion
    If you would like to get pagebar inserted in the blog automatically you need to select this option and additionally the position where to insert pagebar (see next section).

  • Positioning
    If you have selected automatic insertion you can select where to insert the pagebar:

    • Front of postings -> Front of first posting
    • Behind postings -> After the last posting
    • Footer -> In the footer (footer.php)
      (If “Automatic insertion” is not selected these options are disbled.)
  • Integration
    You can remove the standard wordpress navigation manually or by setting the “remove old navigation” checkbox.
    Remove standard navigation: Remove the standard navigation text of WordPress. This only works if the author of your currently used theme hasn’t changed the CSS class of the standard navigation (“.navigation” that is).
    (If “Automatic insertion” is not selected these options are disabled.)

— Specific multipagebar settings —

  • Inherit settings
    If you check this option all basic options will be inherited from the postbar settings. Additionally all these options are removed from the multipagebar settings tab.

  • All pages link
    pagebar gives you the possibility to display all parts of a multipaged post. Checking this setting will add a link behind the pagebar allowing the user to display all parts.

  • All pages label
    Text display for the “All pages link”.

— Specific commentbar options —

+Inherit settings
If you check this option all basic options will be inherited from the postbar settings. Additionally all these options are removed from the commentbar settings tab.

— Tokens —
Tokens can be used in any display area of pagebar. If it makes sense where you want to use it, you have to decide by yourself.
{page} -> Page number
{total} -> Total number of pages
{current} -> Current page number
