get collection for that

public function getNews()
      //get values of current page
        $page=($this->getRequest()->getParam('p'))? $this->getRequest()->getParam('p') : 1;
    //get values of current limit
        $pageSize=($this->getRequest()->getParam('limit'))? $this->getRequest()->getParam('limit') : 1;

        $newsCollection = $this->newscollectionFactory->create();
        return $newsCollection;

Add pagination

protected function _prepareLayout()

    if ($this->getNews()) {
        $pager = $this->getLayout()->createBlock(
        $this->setChild('pager', $pager);
    return $this;

adding the child block

public function getPagerHtml()
    return $this->getChildHtml('pager');

in phtml file

    <?php if ($block->getPagerHtml()): ?>
        <div class="order-products-toolbar toolbar bottom"><?php echo $block->getPagerHtml(); ?></div>
    <?php endif ?>

    Pssst: either $this->getRequest()->getParam('p') ?: 1 or, better yet, $this->getRequest()->getParam('p', 1).

  • I was trying to add it for a toolbar at the top and at the bottom, so it was exactly correct. Commented Dec 15, 2016 at 9:07

    @LM_Fielding you are adding it twice that is causing the problem. Commented Dec 15, 2016 at 9:49
