Pagination

Overview

Learndot now offers the ability to configure all public-facing pages to be displayed as pages.

Public catalog pages and listings of each type of learning component (exams, eLearning, classes, content, courses) can be set up to be displayed as pages. Additionally, specific knowledge categories can also be configured to be paginated. The Administrator can also choose the number items to be displayed per page. 

Administrators may choose to only paginate eLearnings, for example, and not courses, based on the volume of available training and desired user experience. These settings can be configured directly in the product, and will not affect any custom themes or page customizations that are in place. 

Setting up Pagination. 

You can now select either to paginate an individual template or all of them. Furthermore, the amount of items presented per page is also controlled by the dropdown located under Pagination. To set up Pagination, you will require Administrative privileges. After successfully logging in as an Administrator;

  • Navigate to System > Look and Feel > Skin
  • Click on Skin
  • Select which template(s) you want to Paginate

  • Select the amount of 'Items per Page' using the dropdown menu
  • Click Save

Results per page can be 10,25,50 or 100 Items. Also, the 'view' linkage next to the templates provide an easy shortcut to view the changes in effect.

Not Paginated vs Paginated

For example, catalogs that have a large number of items can become unorganized and may take time to load. Pagination can offer a more organized and controlled view, in addition to shorter page loading times. Taking that into consideration, the catalog dropdown menu offers two options:

  • List of Components grouped by Category (This will not apply the Pagination)
  • Paginated (This will apply the Pagination)



Not PaginatedPaginated

If there is no pagination applied to the template for Catalogs. It would group them by Category and list them all together in one page.

If the pagination is applied, then the results are sorted and categorized accordingly.
