First you have to find how many rows would make your SELECT query in
case you would not use "LIMIT from, num".
Then you have to divide this by number of rows per page and use it
in the SELECT query.
Then to your number of pages displayed on your page you add links to
the first number of the LIMIT part in your query.
Maybe something like this:

        # Counting rows
        $page_limit = 10; # 10 Rows will be displayed per page
        if(!$page_start) {
                $page_start = 0;

        $query = "SELECT COUNT(*) FROM your_table";
        if(!($dbq_result = mysql_query($dbq))) {
                echo "YOU HAVE ERRORS IN YOUR QUERY";
        } else {
                while($row = mysql_fetch_array($dbq_result)) {
                        # Getting number of pages - float rounded up
                        # This will be used in later page numbers displaying in HTML.
                        $num_pages = ceil(($row[0] / $page_limit));

        # Selecting rows
        $dbq = "SELECT your_fields FROM your_table LIMIT $page_start, $page_limit";
        if(!($dbq_result = mysql_query($dbq))) {
                echo "YOU HAVE ERRORS IN YOUR QUERY";

YOUR rows displayed ...

        if($num_pages > 1) {
        echo "GO TO PAGE NUMBER: ";
        for($i = 1; $i <= ($num_pages); $i++) {
                if($set_page_start == $page_start) {
                        echo "$i ";
                } else {
                        echo "<a 
href=\"your_file.php?page_start=$set_page_start">$i</a> ";
                $set_page_start = $set_page_start + $page_limit;

If you want to use PREV, NEXT instead of page numbers,
just modify a little the second code paragraph.

Merry Christmas to all !

Has anyone got some code that will correctly display the next 10 line of a
table with prev and next working?
Or point me in the right direction for help?
