Archiving Mode ?

How do I seperate 50 articles on 5 pages with a next page button ?

Hi there,

we realized our guestbook with squishdot. There are about 50 articles now, all shown on one page. But this takes long time to load over a 64kb line cause of all the funny pictures... So we would like to show only 10 articles on the first page, 10 on the second, 10 on the 3rd.. etc. Is this possible ?

Thanx, mob

    It is possible. You can make your index_html use something like this:

    <dtml-call "REQUEST.set('reviewed',1)">
    <dtml-call "REQUEST.set('meta_type','Article')">
    <dtml-if "squish_name_here(REQUEST=REQUEST,internal=1)">
    <dtml-in "squish_name_here(REQUEST=REQUEST,internal=1)" sort=created reverse size=10 start=query_start>

    <dtml-if previous-sequence>
    <a href="http://www.domain.com/index_html<dtml-var sequence-query>query_start=<dtml-var previous-sequence-start-number>">
    (<b>Read Previous <dtml-var previous-sequence-size> News Items</b>)</a><p>
    </dtml-if previous-sequence>


    <dtml-if sequence-end>
    <dtml-if next-sequence>
    <p><a href="http://www.domain.com/index_html<dtml-var sequence-query>query_start=<dtml-var next-sequence-start-number>">
    (<b>Read Next <dtml-var next-sequence-size> News Items</b>)
    </dtml-if next-sequence>
    </dtml-if sequence-end>
