Add-On Type(s)



This extension enables you to add next and prev rel links to paginated pages for SEO and navigation purposes.

Pagination Rel Links creates HTML link elements with rel=“next” and rel=“prev” to indicate the relationship between component URLs in a paginated series.

To activate this extension, go to Addons > Extensions and click Install.

Once installed you can change these settings:

  • Enable redirect to first page where pagination is not found
  • Page number prefix: add a prefix to page numbers in titles
  • Page number suffix: add a suffix to page numbers in titles
  • Display first page number in titles? i.e. Omit Page #1 in #123;pagination_rel_links:page_num} tag

Simply place the following tags within the HTML head area to output the full link tag:


An example output would be:

<link rel=“prev” href=“” />
<link rel=“next” href=“” />

You may also use the following tags to only output the URL and URI:

Outputs full link tags:


Outputs pagination URI - Example: articles/P30

Outputs pagination URL:

Displays the page number for use in browser titles and elsewhere:

Note: These tags can also be used in NSM Better Meta settings.

Extension Settings

  • Page number prefix: adds a prefix to page numbers in titles
            Example result: ” - Page ” could have a title as “My News Listing[ - Page #]”
  • Page number suffix: add a suffix to page numbers in titles
            Example result: ” of listed pages” could have a title as “My News Listing - [# of listed pages]”
  • Display first page number in page_num tag?
            Enable this to show the Page Number on the first paginated page (default=No)
  • Enable redirect to first page where pagination is not found?
            This will help avoid out-of-range pagination problems which automatically redirects to the first page.
            i.e. where the url has P100 but pagination only goes up to P50
  • Store pagination strings to allow for cached pages (experimental)
            The problem exists where pagination rules cannot be accessed after they have been cached (with e.g. CE Cache)
              This attempts to circumvent this problem while still being able to display the pagination_rel_links tags

Installation: copy files to system > expressionengine > third_party
