How To Show Correct List Item Indexes When Using Pagination in Django

08 Jun · by Tim Kamanin · 1 min read

In your Django template put something like this:

{% for object in object_list %}
  <li>{{ forloop.counter0|add:page_obj.start_index }}. {{ object }}</li>
{% endfor %}

Where: object_list - is a list of objects produced by pagination; page_obj - is a page object produced by pagination; page_obj.start_index - is a number each page starts with, so basically, we add this number to a zero forloop counter.
