#1 Comment pagination output (demo)

Let's say we're on a 'postname' page. Which has 30 comments and is set to divide comments by 10 per page. Then let's see what the function gets:

<?php echo get_the_comments_pagination(); ?>

Or you can use a wrapper function for quick display:

<?php the_comments_pagination(); ?>

You will get the following HTML code:

<nav class="navigation comments-pagination" role="navigation">
	<h2 class="screen-reader-text">Comment navigation</h2>
	<div class="nav-links">
		<a class="prev page-numbers" href="http://example.com/postname/comment-page-1/#comments">← Before</a>
		<a class="page-numbers" href="http://example.com/postname/comment-page-1/#comments">1</a>
		<span class="page-numbers current">2</span>
		<a class="page-numbers" href="http://example.com/postname/comment-page-3/#comments">3</a>
		<a class="next page-numbers" href="http://example.com/postname/comment-page-3/#comments">After →</a>
	</div>
</nav>
