    echo '<li class="pagination">', cfct_misc('nav-list'),'</li>';
    echo '</ul>';



What you search for is pagination right?

I am not a WP guy but in general you need to keep track on which page you are and execute a query with a LIMIT and OFFSET clause so that you get what you need from the database, So assume that we have a querystring ?page=2 and that we want to show 25 records per page maximal, then we could write something like this in plain php:


// retrieve page number. Default is 1,
$page = 1;
if(isset($_GET['page']) && $_GET['page'] > 1) {
    $page = (int) $_GET['page'];

// maximum number of records shown on each page (should be somewhere in your configuration)
$max = 25;

// calculate the offset for the query
$offset = ($page -1) * $max; // calculate on which record to start

// build query
$query = "SELECT col1, col2, col3 FROM table LIMIT " . $offset . "," . $max;

// now execute your query and show the records

I hope that it will help you…

thanks but i have managed to use some other code.
