I'm considering having the pagination menu shown only at the bottom of pages on my website
Also to save screen real estate on mobile devices
The pagination looks like this
PAGE 1/3 >>
<< PAGE 2/3 >>
<< PAGE 3/3
I'm pretty sure users will never need to know or link a specific page, as the contents are updated and changed constantly
To me, it makes sense to have it at the bottom, AFTER all the content is read.. "oh there's more? ok let me see".
But should I show the pagination at the top too when the user is on page 2 out of 3? If so, why?
