A Comprehensive Guide On How To Build A Progressively Enhanced, Accessible, Filterable And Paginated List

In this article, we will walk through the process of building a progressively enhanced, accessible and paginated list. You will learn how to do this by adding support for keyboard navigation (e.g. tabbing through the list), adding ARIA attributes, and filtering by various criteria.

Creating The HTML Document

In order to create a web page, you will need to create a HTML document. On that document, you need to write the following:

// include global variables
// pre-pending the $ sign to anything outside of a function identifies them as being global
$result = mysql_query(‘SELECT * FROM table WHERE column1=’value”) OR die(mysql_error());

If a condition is met, then you can do something else like show only 10 or 20 rows instead or change some text that is being printed out to make it more user friendly.”},{“headline”:”Running Your Script To Test It”,”content”:”To test your scripts, you will need to run them in a browser. If the code runs successfully, then it should show the output you expect.

It’s important to test your script before uploading it. You can do this by running the script in the browser. If you’re using Jquery to add in a pagination, upload the script first and then add on the pagination later.
You should use Jquery because it makes adding your code easier and less messy, but if you’re not familiar with Javascript or programming, it might be difficult for you.”},{“headline”:”Adding Pagination To Your List Content”,”content”:”You can add pagination to your list content by defining the number of items in each page on the list. Next, set a page number for the content where you want to start paginating. Finally, you need to set a limit for the number of items that will be displayed. This way, you will only display a subset of the total number of items at any time.
