Pagination question

I can’t seem to find the information I need about pagination.

It seems that by default the paginations scheme breaks things up from
first
to last. Does anyone know how one would be able to paginate from the
last
item entered to the first. the .reverse method only seems to reverse
things
‘within’ the page.

Presumably you’re talking about Ruby on Rails. Have you seen this?

Assuming that you are talking about Rails, you just need to set the
appropriate order in the query. So, to get from the last item created
to the first, you could add “:order => ‘id DESC’”. If you want them in
ascending order within each page, then you need to call reverse on
the result of that.

Finally, there’s a separate mailing list for Ruby on Rails - this is
a more general list (to which you are apparently posting via
nabble.com). For Rails-specific questions, you’ll probably get better
response in the appropriate list.

Ah, thanks so much. That I am, sorry about that.
