== Installation ==

*Install and Activate*

1. Unzip the downloaded WP-Paginate zip file
2. Upload the `wp-paginate` folder and its contents into the `wp-content/plugins/` directory of your WordPress installation
3. Activate WP-Paginate from Plugins page

*Implement*

For posts pagination:
* Open the theme files where you'd like pagination to be used. Depending on your theme, this could be in a number of files, such as `index.php`, `archive.php`, `categories.php`, `search.php`, `tag.php`, or the `functions.php` file(s).The `twentyeleven` theme places the pagination code in `functions.php` in the `twentyeleven_content_nav()` function.

Examples:

For the `Twenty Seventeen` theme, in `index.php`, replace:

the_posts_pagination( array(
'prev_text' => twentyseventeen_get_svg( array( 'icon' => 'arrow-left' ) ) . '' . __( 'Previous page', 'twentyseventeen' ) . '',
'next_text' => '' . __( 'Next page', 'twentyseventeen' ) . '' . twentyseventeen_get_svg( array( 'icon' => 'arrow-right' ) ),
'before_page_number' => '' . __( 'Page', 'twentyseventeen' ) . ' ',
) );

With:

if(function_exists('wp_paginate')):
wp_paginate();
else :
the_posts_pagination( array(
'prev_text' => twentyseventeen_get_svg( array( 'icon' => 'arrow-left' ) ) . '' . __( 'Previous page', 'twentyseventeen' ) . '',
'next_text' => '' . __( 'Next page', 'twentyseventeen' ) . '' . twentyseventeen_get_svg( array( 'icon' => 'arrow-right' ) ),
'before_page_number' => '' . __( 'Page', 'twentyseventeen' ) . ' ',
) );
endif;

For the `Twenty Sixteen` theme, in `index.php`, replace:

the_posts_pagination( array(
'prev_text' => __( 'Previous page', 'twentysixteen' ),
'next_text' => __( 'Next page', 'twentysixteen' ),
'before_page_number' => '' . __( 'Page', 'twentysixteen' ) . ' ',
) );

With:

if(function_exists('wp_paginate')):
wp_paginate();
else :
the_posts_pagination( array(
'prev_text' => __( 'Previous page', 'twentysixteen' ),
'next_text' => __( 'Next page', 'twentysixteen' ),
'before_page_number' => '' . __( 'Page', 'twentysixteen' ) . ' ',
) );
endif;

For the `Twenty Fifteen` theme, in `index.php`, replace:

the_posts_pagination( array(
'prev_text' => __( 'Previous page', 'twentyfifteen' ),
'next_text' => __( 'Next page', 'twentyfifteen' ),
'before_page_number' => '' . __( 'Page', 'twentyfifteen' ) . ' ',
) );

With:

if(function_exists('wp_paginate')):
wp_paginate();
else :
the_posts_pagination( array(
'prev_text' => __( 'Previous page', 'twentyfifteen' ),
'next_text' => __( 'Next page', 'twentyfifteen' ),
'before_page_number' => '' . __( 'Page', 'twentyfifteen' ) . ' ',
) );
endif;

For comments pagination:
1) Open the theme file(s) where you'd like comments pagination to be used. Usually this is the `comments.php` file.

2) Replace your existing `previous_comments_link()` and `next_comments_link()` code block with the following:

wp_paginate_comments();
} ?>


*Configure*

1) Configure the WP-Paginate settings, if necessary, from the WP-Paginate option in the Settings menu

2) The styles can be changed with the following methods:

* Add a `wp-paginate.css` file in your theme's directory and place your custom CSS there
* Add your custom CSS to your theme's `styles.css`
* Modify the `wp-paginate.css` file in the wp-paginate plugin directory

*Note:* The first two options will ensure that WP-Paginate updates will not overwrite your custom styles.

*Upgrading*

To 1.1.1+:

* Update WP-Paginate settings, change `Before Markup` to `
