UX Movement: Avoid the Pains of Pagination

UX Movement – Avoid the Pains of Pagination:

“Stop making your pages so short and allow users to scroll for more content instead of clicking.

[…] [Turn] your “next” and “previous” links into larger links or buttons. With a larger click target, users will be able to spot and hit it faster and easier.

[…] Some paginations have first and last links that allow users to skip to the first or last page. This is unnecessary and ususally confuses users.

[…] If your content opens on the same page, infinite scrolling can frustrate users. When the user clicks to go back, they’ll lose their place and progress in the content stream and will have to scroll from the top of the page again.”
