    Hi All,

    I'm Using Sitefinity 6.2, and using sitefinity blogs

    <sf:Pager id="pager" runat="server"  ShowPrevAndNext="true"></sf:Pager>

    Now I'm Getting Blog pagination as

    Prev 1 2 3 4 5 Next

    But I need to Customize as

    < 1 2 3 4 5 >

    How to overwrite Arrows instead on Text?

    is there any way to write like as

    previouspagetext="Prev" ?

    thanks  in advance

    Hello Narendra,

    In order to change the text of the labels "Prev" and "Next" of the pager, please perform the following:
    1. Go to Administration -> Labels and Messages
    2. Click on the Labels link on the right-hand side of the page.
    3. Type "Next" in the search field in order to find the label displaying "Next" and click search.
    4. From the search results list click on the label with Resource key: Paging_Next in order to open it in edit mode 
    5. Enter the desired text message in the text field.

    You can perform the same for the "Prev" label by searching for "Prev" and clicking on the label with Resource key: Paging_Prev.
    If you change the labels and messages for a first time you need to restart the application in order for the changes to take effect.

    I have also recorded a short video for your convenience demonstrating the above steps.
