by-page with multi-column

I wish to display a large number of items (several hundred). I want to show 30 them per page as given in the example at http://www.tinybutstrong.com/examples.php?e=prmserial&m=result such that they are arranged in 10 rows of three columns each. Is it possible to combine the two capabilities? I tried having multiple <td> lines in 'by page' example and it shows the same content in every column for a particular row. Help please!

Re: by-page with multi-column

Hi Sine,

Yes you can combine the ByPage plug-in with the "serial" feature.
There is nothing specific to make them working together: the ByPage plug-in will change the records to merge, while parameter "serial" will change the way they are merged in the block.

Please note that the ByPage plug-in won't make you query run faster because it is note able to change the SQL query and add the LIMIT clause. The ByPage plug-in call the query as-is and will merge only records corresponding to the asked page.
So if you have a lot records, it is better to manage the page to display yourself using the LIMIT clause in your query.
