Simple Pagination
If you have a website with lots of pages, you may wish to add some sort of pagination to each page:

Example

.pagination {
    display: inline-block;
}
.pagination a {
    color: black;
    float: left;
    padding: 8px 16px;
    text-decoration: none;
}

Active and Hoverable Pagination

Highlight the current page with an .active class, and use the :hover selector to change the color of each page link when moving the mouse over them:

Example

.pagination a.active {
    background-color: #4CAF50;
    color: white;
}
.pagination a:hover:not(.active) {background-color: #ddd;}

Example

.pagination a {
    border-radius: 5px;
}
.pagination a.active {
    border-radius: 5px;
}
