I found an interesting tutorial about how to build wordpress pagination without plugin here :

http://www.kriesi.at/archives/how-to-build-a-wordpress-post-pagination-without-plugin

According to her tutorial, here’s what you should do :

1. Add the following to your functions.php

function kriesi_pagination($pages = '', $range = 2)
{  
     $showitems = ($range * 2)+1;  

     global $paged;
     if(empty($paged)) $paged = 1;

     if($pages == '')
     {
         global $wp_query;
         $pages = $wp_query->max_num_pages;
         if(!$pages)
         {
             $pages = 1;
         }
     }   

     if(1 != $pages)
     {
         echo "\n";
     }
}

2. Add the following to your index.php / archive.php / tag.php, etc..

<?php kriesi_pagination(); ?>

3. Add the following to you css stylesheet :

.pagination {
clear:both;
padding:20px 0;
position:relative;
font-size:11px;
line-height:13px;
}

.pagination span, .pagination a {
display:block;
float:left;
margin: 2px 2px 2px 0;
padding:6px 9px 5px 9px;
text-decoration:none;
width:auto;
color:#fff;
background: #555;
}

.pagination a:hover{
color:#fff;
background: #3279BB;
}

.pagination .current{
padding:6px 9px 5px 9px;
background: #3279BB;
color:#fff;
}
