Hello,

Myself and a friend use RoR to run a small site that makes a lot of use
of pagination. We've got a fairly standard internet hosting package,
which does <i>not</i> include terminal access to the server.

As I understand it, we won't be able to install any plugins.

So we need to either convince our ISP to do the plugin install or write
our own pagination methods?

I can understand depreciating a method, but removing it and hence not
offering backwards compatability seems unneccesary.

If you can upload files you can install plugins. Plugins are just
installed to the vendor/plugins/ directory in your Rails application
folder (ie., they are not system wide).

If you have to, check the plugin out from SVN then FTP it to the right folder.
