Example Event log showing bad id processing options

NEW: Drupal 8.x version now available

DBLog Pager

The DBLog Pager module is quite simple. It adds paging options (Next, Previous) to the individual events view (/admin/reports/event/%ID%). Also adds First and Last links (if desired you can turn them off). Overrides the default display of a blank page if an event ID can't be found (configurable).

Drupal 7.x Only: also (as of version 1.1), modifies the breadcrumbs on event details pages to add the DBLog (configurable of course). This lets you go straight back to the log even if you've been using the paging functionality with one click rather than having to click back 50 times. Not included in Drupal 8 module as this change is in core.

This module requires the core module Database Logging. It is not enabled by default so you may have to enable it.


Install as you would normally install a contributed Drupal module. See the instructions for Drupal 7 or Drupal 8 as required in the Drupal documentation for further information.


Configuration can be accessed at /admin/config/development/logging/dblog_pager. Drupal 8.x: at /admin/config/development/logging instead

There are three or four configuration options depending on what Drupal version you are using:

  • Show First/Last Links: Checkbox to enable/disable visibility of the last/first event links. [Default: TRUE]
  • Drupal 7.x Only Add DBLog to Breadcrumbs: Checkbox to enable/disable modifying the breadcrumbs on event details page to add the DBLog. [Default: TRUE]
  • Override Bad ID Processing: Checkbox to enable/disable overriding dblog's default of displaying a blank page if the log entry can't be found. If active, will display a warning. [Default: TRUE]
  • Redirect To Last Log Record: If Override Bad ID Processing and this is active then DBlog will display a warning and redirect to the most recent log record (that matches whatever filtering you may have active) instead of just a warning over a blank page. [Default:TRUE].


If the paging functionality doesn't appear, try the following:

  • Clear your cache.
  • If it is just the Last/First links not showing make sure they are
    configured to appear.
  • Try uninstalling and reinstalling the module.
  • Drupal 7.x OnlyConfirm that you aren't overriding the template in a theme. The template is dblog-event.tpl.php.
