This is slight improvement over Paginator|Snippet 73. That used to not work properly if querystring already contains other parameters, like search result page.

website/paginator.html:

<br /><center>
<span class="lbottom">
{% if has_previous %}<a href="{{ path }}page={{ previous }}"><< Previous </a>{% else %}<span>Previous </span>{% endif %}
{% if show_first %}<a href="{{ path }}page=1">First </a>{% endif %}
{% for page_no in page_numbers %}
    {% ifnotequal page_no page %}
        <a href="{{ path }}page={{ page_no }}">{{ page_no }} </a>
    {% else %}
    {{ page_no }} 
    {% endifnotequal %}
{% endfor %}
{% if show_last %}<a href="{{ path }}page={{ pages }}">Last </a>{% endif %}
{% if has_next %}<a href="{{ path }}page={{ next }}">Next >></a>{% else %}<span>Next </span>{% endif %}
</span>
<br /></center>
