Here's How To Create A Responsive Pagination Outline | Scrollable

Displaying all page numbers can distort your page if there are too many of them. You can prevent this by applying a horizontal scrolling effect to the pager. By applying a scroll effect you can tack away page numbers that don't fit the page and access them by scrolling.

The code below shows how to do this by applying CSS to a DIV element containing the page numbers

The div.y-scroll {} CSS block is responsible for creating the scrolling effect. The width specified is used to guard the number of page numbers that are displayed at a time.

The overflow-x property ensures that the undisplayed page numbers stay hidden, and with white-space set to wrap this ensures the hidden page numbers are not moved to the next line. This forces everything to stay hidden and only shown by scrolling.
