#28433 closed enhancement (wontfix)

allow for more control on paginate_links list element

paginate_links allows the caller to specify type='list'.
However, it does not provide any mean to control the ul element created under these conditions by source:trunk/src/wp-includes/general-template.php@head#L2525

There are many possibilities to enhance this, of course; personally I'd find useful to have the ability of specifying an id and/or additional CSS classes to be used for that element.

I could imagine a filter on the HTML output

I'm not sure paginate_links() is supposed to be a full fledged template tag. It's more meant to be a low-level helper function to, well, paginate links.

The ul element already has a class name, why can't that be used to style it? And the easiest way to enhance it would probably be to wrap it in an HTML tag with an id or class.

I'd suggest wontfix.

I would second wontfix.

It returns an array that you can modify to your choosing.

$links = paginate_link( array( 'type' => 'array' ) );
foreach( $links as $link ){
    echo '<span class="item">' . $link . '</span>';
// or alternaticvely
$nav = '<ul class="page-nav"><li> . join( '</li><li class="link-item">', $links ) . '</li></ul>';
