Hey all, I've been really happy with ferret thus far and all my search on my site is based on it. One of the recent challenges I ran into is changing some of my pagination within my site. Until now, I just used the tutorials out there that talk about how to get pagination working with acts_as_ferret. Recently, I decided to change my pagination to begin using the "Paginating Find" plugin. http://cardboardrocket.com/pages/paginating_find I'm using the "Paginating Find" plugin and combining it with the following guide to get Digg.com style pagination looking links. http://www.igvita.com/blog/2006/09/10/faster-pagin... For most of my site, that works fine, but I haven't been too successful in getting it to work with acts_as_ferret and I'm not quite sure where to start. Anyone tried this out before or have any ideas that might point me in the right direction? Thanks in advance!

However any sorting done by Ferret (by score or any other sorting by Ferret field) will be lost that way. Jens -- webit!
