will_paginate for single models

Reported by Steven Garcia | May 10th, 2007 @ 01:53 AM

I was trying to use this plugin and it seems like it was written for associated models (:board has_many :posts)

How should I write my controller code for cases when there is no parent model? Is this even possible?

    You're free to use this with any object or association.

    All you need is a subset of objects and a total count of all of those objects that fit your criteria to use this plugin. There's a lot of functionality given automatically, but you're free to override most of it.

    If that sounds like a vague answer, perhaps you could post some code to let me know what you're trying to do.

    It's clear to me that Steven didn't understand that "paginate" methods is just a wrapper (kinda) for "find", so they can do anything "find" can.

    Anyway, [203]:http://require.errtheblog.com/plugins/changeset/203 adds many finder tests to the plugin which pass in the most simple and complex scenarios. I'm closing this because the finder doesn't have to operate on associated models.
