Pagination + pretty URLs


#1

Hello all.

I want to make pagination URLs pretty instead of the ?page=2. I have
written a route like this:

map.connect ‘restaurant/list_dishes/:page’,
:controller => ‘restaurant’,
:action => ‘list_dishes’,
:requirements => { :page => /\d+/},
:page => nil

Which appears to work. However the following only retrieves the first 10
records.

def list_dishes
@dish_pages, @dishes = paginate :dishes, :conditions => “visible =
TRUE”, :per_page => 10
end

Now there is no explicit page list there but the fact it works without
the above route means there must be some magic going on that I now need
to make manual. What I don’t know is what needs to be changed? Any
advice?

Thanks
