Add pagination to the mobile version

Most know already that the mobile version lacks a means to jump to the end of a topic. However, with this tutorial you will be able to add pagination to the mobile version of your Forumotion forum.

Add pagination to the mobile version Screen10

This will add :
* A first and last button to quickly jump to the beginning or end of a topic
* A list of pages that you can scroll through with the black block arrows


Go to Administration Panel > Modules > JavaScript codes management make sure JavaScript code management is enabled, and create a new script.

Title : Mobile pagination
Placement : In the topics
Paste the code below :
$(function() {
  var perpage = 15, // amount of messages before a new page is added
  p = document.getElementsByTagName('P'), l = window.location.pathname, current, last, tid = l.replace(/\/t(\d+).*/,'$1'), tname = l.replace(/(\/t\d+|\/t\d+p\d+)(-.*)/,'$2'), style = document.createElement('STYLE'), css = '.pagi {height:auto;color:#FFF;position:static;margin:2px}.pagactif{color:#FF8;cursor:default}.scroller{position:absolute;width:18px;height:28px;cursor:pointer}.left.scroller{background:url( no-repeat center #444;left:65px}.right.scroller{background:url( no-repeat center #444;right:65px}', i,j;

  if (typeof _userdata.page_desktop === 'undefined') return;
  style.type = 'text/css';
  if (style.styleSheet) style.styleSheet.cssText = css;
  else style.appendChild(document.createTextNode(css));
  for (i=0; i<p.length; i++) {
    if (/mobile_title_content/.test(p[i].className)) {
      current = Number(p[i].innerHTML.replace(/.*?<strong>(\d+)<\/strong>.*?<strong>\d+<\/strong>/i,'$1'));
      last = Number(p[i].innerHTML.replace(/.*?<strong>\d+<\/strong>.*?<strong>(\d+)<\/strong>/i,'$1'));

  if (last >= current) {
    var b = document.getElementsByTagName('DIV'), title = document.createElement('DIV'), cen = document.createElement('DIV'), left = document.createElement('DIV'), right = document.createElement('DIV'), c = 1, d = 0;
    title.className = 'mobile_title', left.className = 'left scroller', right.className = 'right scroller', cen.className = 'mobile_title_content', cen.setAttribute('style','left:85px;right:85px;text-overflow:clip;line-height:26px;');
    for (j=0; j<b.length; j++) if (/mobile_title/.test(b[j].className)) if (/\d+/.test(b[j] || /poll/.test(b[j].nextSibling.className)) b[j].parentNode.insertBefore(title,b[j].nextSibling);
    title.appendChild(cen), title.appendChild(left), title.appendChild(right);
    left.onmousedown = function() { cen.scrollLeft -= 100 };
    right.onmousedown = function() { cen.scrollLeft += 100 };

    while (d < 2) {
      if (d == 0 && current > 1) newPage('mobile_prev_button block', '<p>First</p>', '/t' + tid + tname, title);
      else if (d == 1 && current != last) newPage('mobile_next_button block', '<p>Last</p>', '/t' + tid + 'p' + Number(perpage * last - perpage) + tname, title);
      d += 1;
    } while (last + 1 > c) {
      if (c == current) newPage('mobile_next_button block pagi pagactif', c, 'javascript:void(0);', cen, 'currentPage');
      else newPage('mobile_next_button block pagi', c, '/t' + tid + 'p' + Number(perpage * c - perpage) + tname, cen);
      c += 1;
    cen.scrollLeft = document.getElementById('currentPage').offsetLeft;
  function newPage(classname, html, href, par, id) {var page = document.createElement('A'); page.className = classname, page.innerHTML = html, page.href = href, par.appendChild(page); if (id) = id}

Modifications :

So the pagination works correctly you must make one modification.

In the script is the variable perpage, with a value of 15. You must change this value to the amount of messages you allow per page. To find this information go to Administration Panel > General > Messages and e-mails > Configuration and find "Posts Per Page" :

Add pagination to the mobile version Captur13

If it is already set at 15, you do not need to edit the variable. Otherwise you must change the 15 to the value displayed in the message config, as in the example below :
  var perpage = 5, // amount of messages before a new page is added

When finished, submit the script and you should now have pagination for the mobile version ! Very Happy

Exclamation Attention : Functionally may vary for older mobile devices

If you are using the modern theme ( ), you do not need this tutorial.  The modern theme already has this feature.
