i'm trying to create my first magento template and i'm facing problems to load the pagination toolbar.

My last try was using

$object = new Mage_Catalog_Block_Product_List_Toolbar();
echo $object->getPagerHtml();

This hint was taken from


But on my catalog/product/list.phtml doesn't show my pagination. Maybe I'm missing something on XML layout?
PS.: Neither toolbar.phtml loads

First check your theme layout file catalog.xml

<block type="catalog/product_list_toolbar" name="product_list_toolbar" template="catalog/product/list/toolbar.phtml">

is set in catalog_category_default(Catalog Category (Non-Anchor) and Catalog Category (Anchor)) node,

If code not existing so add this code. you can copy it from base theme catalog.xml
