Similar to LINQ the EPiServer Find .NET API has the methods Skip and Take to bypass a number of search results and specify how many search results should be returned respectively. Unlike LINQ search results are by default limited to 10 and the maximum value that can be specified using the Take method is 1000. In other words, Take(1001) or Take(int.MaxValue) will throw an excpetion. If more than a thousand result items are needed, use multiple search requests.


Below is an example of using the Skip and Take methods for pagination:

string searchQuery = //From query string or similar
int page = //From query string or similar
int pageSize = 15;

    .Skip((page - 1)*pageSize)
