I'm trying to page through records returned from a search: donor controller: def search str = params[:donor][:search_string] + '%' @donor_pages, @donors = paginate :donors, :per_page => 5, :conditions => ["last_name LIKE ?", str] render(:template => 'donor/list') end in my main view: <%= text_field 'donor', 'search_string' %> I'm trying to reuse the exsting 'list' template, which works, but I'm wondering how to persist the search string in order to be able to page thru the results. I mean, I can think of various ways to do it, but am unclear what the Rails way is. Do I simply append the search string to the link? Thanks!
