Will paginate and sorting

Hello,
I have my own functions in the controller and i want to use will
paginate.
when i use will paginate then i face the following problems,
1.I cannot sort the commplete results after search…i can only sort the
results that are there on a particular page but not the whole set of
results.

  1. Since i am using my own defined functions in the controller clicking
    on the
    next page in will_paginate takes me to a controller action (i think
    index or show) which in my application has nothing to do with
    searching…so i get an error.
    What do i need to do
    Thank you.

Hi, what does your user defined function do that the conditions has
doesn’t
do? In any case, here’s a good Railscast that handles this very nicely:

Good luck,

See http://mislav.uniqpath.com/static/will_paginate/doc/ and click on
the
WillPaginate::Collection link on the left and read the docs on create().
