We don't support adding text to the pagination buttons in the Theme editor, however there are several other options for customizing the pagination button style on your forms. Our Agency plans include access to Custom CSS, giving you a greater amount of control over your button appearance, including adding text.

Essentials and Pro Plans

On Essentials and Pro plans, you can configure the pagination appearance to include numbers or a progress bar. To do this, go to Theme (waterdrop icon) → UI Elements → Pagination Buttons and choose your preferred style.

The following options are available:

  • Buttons Only
  • Numbers
  • Progress Bar

Check out our article on changing the style of pagination buttons for more information on these options.

Select from Buttons Only, Numbers, and Progress Bar under Pagination Style

Agency Plans

On our Agency plan, you can add text to your pagination buttons, or change their shape and size with Custom CSS. You can add Custom CSS by going to Theme (waterdrop icon) → UI Elements → Custom CSS. Here is some example CSS to get you started:

.Pagination__btn.Pagination__btn--next:before {
    content: "Next";
    color: white;
    vertical-align: top;

.Pagination__btn.Pagination__btn--previous:before {
    content: "Back";
    color: white;
    vertical-align: top;
