Try to get the pagination working


After I found out pagination needs to be installed additionally with jekyll 3 version, so tried to install the gem, but still could not get it work. Would be very appreciated if anyone can help.

  • Ruby version is ruby 2.4.1p111 (2017-03-22 revision 58053) [x86_64-darwin16]

  • Jekyll version is jekyll 3.4.3

  • gems: [jekyll-paginate] is added in _config.yml

  • {%for article in paginator.posts%} is used in the code

  • Output of gem list :

      *** LOCAL GEMS ***
      addressable (2.5.1)
      bigdecimal (default: 1.3.0)

Could the square brackets be the problem? I think it should be:

- some-other-gem
- jekyll-paginate
- some-other-gem


Hi David, tried it but did not work. I have updated the repository if that helps to find the issues. Live view.


Ah ok, if you are running it locally then you might be able to debug it from there. Do you have an error in your command line tool?


Mmm no I don’t see any errors. I have a feeling that I did not install the pagination probably that causes the problem.


As per the docs it only works on index.html files, you’ve got the paginator logic in blog.html.

Try renaming it to blog/index.html and see if it works. The plugin is pretty fussy.


That’s amazing, thank you so much Michael.
