Creating a Simple Pagination Script using PHP PDO with jQuery

there are only three file we need to achieve pagination and they are :
-- index.php
-- get_records.php
-- dbconfig.php
-- jquery.bootpag.min.js

click here to get detailed about bootpag : bootpag

Database Design and Table

Database : db_pagination Table : tutorials
copy paste following mysql code into your PHPMyAdmin to create table.

CREATE TABLE IF NOT EXISTS `tutorials` (
  `tutsID` int(11) unsigned NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT,
  `tutsTitle` varchar(100) NOT NULL,
  `tutsLink` varchar(100) NOT NULL,
  PRIMARY KEY (`tutsID`),
  FULLTEXT KEY `tutsTitle` (`tutsTitle`)
) ENGINE=MyISAM  DEFAULT CHARSET=latin1 AUTO_INCREMENT=57 ;

dbconfig.php

Simple Database Configuration file using PDO extension, edit username, password, host name as per your configuration.
<?php

 $db_username = 'root';
 $db_password = '';
 $db_name = 'db_pagination';
 $db_host = 'localhost';
 $item_per_page = 7;
 
 
 try
 {
  $dbcon = new PDO("mysql:host={$db_host};dbname={$db_name}",$db_username,$db_password);
  $dbcon->setAttribute(PDO::ATTR_ERRMODE, PDO::ERRMODE_EXCEPTION);
 }
 catch(PDOException $e)
 {
  echo $e->getMessage();
 }

?>

Getting Total number of Pages

using the following code you can get total number of pages, in ceil() function i have passed simple logic (total_rows/itep_per_page). isn't it simple.
$results = $dbcon->prepare("SELECT COUNT(*) FROM tutorials");
$results->execute();
$get_total_rows = $results->fetch();

//breaking total records into pages
$pages = ceil($get_total_rows[0]/$item_per_page);

jQuery/javaScript Code

To execute the following jQuery code we need to add "jquery.bootpag.min.js" plugin file within head tag. once we get page number from the above code by assigning $pages variable , now set this variable as a total's value like this total: <?php echo $pages; ?>
<script type="text/javascript">
$(document).ready(function() {
 $("#results").load("get_records.php");  //initial page number to load
 $(".paging_link").bootpag({
    total: <?php echo $pages; ?>
 }).on("page", function(e, num){
  e.preventDefault();
  $("#results").prepend('<div class="loading-indication"><img src="ajax-loader.gif" /> Loading...</div>');
  $("#results").load("get_records.php", {'page':num});
 });

});
</script>

index.php / Complete Index.php Code

this file contains complete source code which is explained above. here in this code i have given
<div id="results"></div> tag which will display records from mysql table, and
<div class="paging_link"></div> second div tag which will set and display pagination link.
<?php
include("dbconfig.php");

$results = $dbcon->prepare("SELECT COUNT(*) FROM tutorials");
$results->execute();
$get_total_rows = $results->fetch();

//breaking total records into pages
$pages = ceil($get_total_rows[0]/$item_per_page); 


?>

<body>
        

<br />


<div id="results"></div>

<br />

<div class="paging_link"></div>

</body>
</html>

get_records.php

contains mainly PHP code which will fetch records from MySQL Database with the starting position and item per page here is the simple logic for position $position = (($page_number-1) * $item_per_page);
<?php
require_once 'dbconfig.php'; //include required dbconfig file

//sanitize post value
if(isset($_POST["page"])){
 $page_number = filter_var($_POST["page"], FILTER_SANITIZE_NUMBER_INT, FILTER_FLAG_STRIP_HIGH);
 if(!is_numeric($page_number)){die('Invalid page number!');} //incase of invalid page number
}else{
 $page_number = 1;
}

//get current starting point of records
$position = (($page_number-1) * $item_per_page);

$results = $dbcon->prepare("SELECT tutsTitle,tutsLink FROM tutorials ORDER BY tutsID DESC LIMIT $position, $item_per_page");
$results->execute();

//getting results from database
?>
<ul class="page_result">
<?php
while($row = $results->fetch(PDO::FETCH_ASSOC))
{
 ?>
    <li>
    <a href="<?php echo $row['tutsLink']; ?>"><?php echo $row['tutsTitle']; ?></a>
    </li>
    <?php
}
?>
</ul>

That's it, isn't it cool, how it's become easy using jquery (jquery plugin) to create pagination with PHP MySQL, see live demo and download script , if you face any issue regarding this script feel free to comment, thank you.
