The total number of pages is retrieved with "counter(pages)". Thus "page 3 of 143" translates as

content: "page " counter(page) " of " counter(pages);

The page number is inserted with CSS counters. As far as I know there is no possibility to count all pages in CSS. So there is no chance for you to the the total page number in dhe PDF...

content: "page " counter(page) " of " counter(pages); this one Generate like this page 1 of 0 . it will not come  total pages count can you suggest anything for total pages 

What did you do exactly? Where did you enter the above code? Where is the text supposed to appear?

In short: This is CSS code. It must be entered in the PDF stylesheet and will create text in a PDF when the wiki page is exported via "Export to PDF".

in Dompdf inside a <style>#pagenumber:before {
content: "Page " counter(page) " of " counter(pages);


I call the id inside the body

<body><span id="pagenumber"></span>


the Output come like Page 1/0

The solution proposed here, works as follows:

  1. Add the following code at Browse > Space Admin > PDF stylesheet
    @page {
    @bottom-right {
    content: counter(page) " / " counter(pages);
  2. Click Tools > Export to PDF

The result will be a PDF with the page number(s) "x / x" at the bottom right of your PDF file.

You seem to try something different which I am not familiar with. So I can't help with that.

image.PNGi marked round in picture that header side i need  so i can use  inside a style as a ID    


content: counter(page) " / " counter(pages);
<div id="id"></div>

this will work or not ?
