Reversing paginated lists, linking to last page from control


#1

Hi

I use the scaffolded generated crud to handle my entries, and I cannot
figure out how to reverse the list, what with the pagination.

I can reverse the entries on a page, but not the entire paginated list.

Also, it would be helpful to me to be able to redirect to the last page
of a
paginated list when I destroy, i figured out how to add such links to
the
view, but how to get from the controller to the last page.

Especially the second way, so i can more easily destroy lots of stuff,
which
is what I really want to do.

You should be able to ‘reverse’ your list by passing an
:order=>‘some_column DESC’ to the paginate function.
