Previous and next events in the event_full template of Contao.

Contao Event Pagination

This event_full template creates a previous and next pagination for events. It uses the same HTML structure as the default pagination template. Of course you can change that to your needs. Simply download the event_full.html5 template and put it in your /templates directory.

Known limitations:

  • It ignores the start and end field.
  • It is limited to events from the same calendar. Otherwise the target URL might be wrong.
  • It will not work if the auto_item parameter is disabled.
