    I modified an existing template of blog widget to show only what I really needed. Now, I want to add a custom pagination that has next and previous buttons, and can display up to 5 list of pages based on the current page.

    Plese see below:

     << 1 2 3 4 5 >>


    << 7 8 9 10 11 >>


    Below is my template.

    <%@ Control Language="C#" %>
    <%@ Register TagPrefix="sf" Namespace="Telerik.Sitefinity.Web.UI.ContentUI" Assembly="Telerik.Sitefinity" %>
    <%@ Register TagPrefix="sf" Namespace="Telerik.Sitefinity.Web.UI.Comments" Assembly="Telerik.Sitefinity" %>
    <%@ Register TagPrefix="sf" Namespace="Telerik.Sitefinity.Web.UI" Assembly="Telerik.Sitefinity" %>
    <%@ Register TagPrefix="sf" Namespace="Telerik.Sitefinity.Web.UI.PublicControls.BrowseAndEdit" Assembly="Telerik.Sitefinity" %>
    <%@ Register TagPrefix="telerik" Namespace="Telerik.Web.UI" Assembly="Telerik.Web.UI" %>
    <%@ Register Assembly="Telerik.Sitefinity" Namespace="Telerik.Sitefinity.Modules.Comments.Web.UI.Frontend" TagPrefix="comments" %>
    <%@ Import Namespace="Telerik.Sitefinity" %>   
    <%@ Import Namespace="Telerik.Sitefinity.Web.UI" %>
    <telerik:RadListView ID="Repeater" ItemPlaceholderID="ItemsContainer" runat="server" EnableEmbeddedSkins="true" EnableEmbeddedBaseStylesheet="true">
                <asp:PlaceHolder ID="ItemsContainer" runat="server" />
            <div data-sf-provider='<%# Eval("Provider.Name")%>'  data-sf-id='<%# Eval("Id")%>' data-sf-type="Telerik.Sitefinity.Blogs.Model.BlogPost">
                    <sf:DetailsViewHyperLink TextDataField="Title" ToolTipDataField="Description" data-sf-field="Title" data-sf-ftype="ShortText" runat="server" />
                    <asp:Literal ID="Literal2" Text="<%$ Resources:Labels, By %>" runat="server" />
                    <sf:PersonProfileView runat="server" />
                    <sf:FieldListView ID="PostDate" runat="server" Format=" | {PublicationDate.ToLocal():MMM dd, yyyy}" />

            <br />
                <sf:FieldListView ID="PostContent" runat="server" Text="{0}" Properties="Content" WrapperTagName="div" WrapperTagCssClass="sfpostContent" EditableFieldType="LongText"/>

    Hello Jay,

    In order to change the appearance of the Pager control or to add additional functionality you should customize it inheriting from its Telerik.Sitefinity.Web.UI.Pager class.
    You can find detailed information about styling the widget here and for customizing in this article.
    I believe you will find this article useful, as well. You can also find information about editing the pager in this forum thread.
