What’s the best way to paginate search results?

I was using

{% set query = craft.request.getParam('q') %}

and then

{% paginate craft.entries.search(query).section('…').limit(…).order('…') as entries %}

but the pagination links (paginate.prevUrl and paginate.nextUrl) don’t contain the query.

{{ paginate.nextUrl }}?q={{ query }} did the trick with this setup.


I think this will work

{{ paginate.prevUrl }}?search=' ~ (craft.request.getParam('search'))
  • Thanks. I used {{ paginate.nextUrl }}?q={{ query }} and that worked with my setup.
