I think you need something like:

require "will_paginate"

in your environment.rb file. Be sure to put it after the
Rails::Initializer block so all the Rails goodies are loaded--will-
pagenate needs them.

environment.rb:
  config.gem 'mislav-will_paginate', :version => '~> 2.3.2',
    :lib => 'will_paginate',
    :source => 'http://gems.github.com'

rake gems:install

Now in the controller:

@books = Book.paginate(:page => params[:books])

And here is the view:

<%= will_paginate @books %>

Its all documented here:

http://github.com/mislav/will_paginate/wikis

You dont need svn or git to install the plugin... Just get the
download from the project site and extract it to your vendor/plugin
directory...

While trying to follow the installation instruction on the github
website, encounter another error when I came to the section on "braid":

When trying to merge the track using:

    git merge braid/track

it throw the following error:

    Fatal: Not a git repository.

Is this because I am using Windows Vista?

So I try to install rails v2.1.2 so that I can use the "ruby
script/plugin ..." command to do the same job, but it pop-up an error
windows with the following error:

    The procedure entry point_apr_hash_clear@4 could not be located in
the dynamic link library libapr_tsvn.dll.

When I close the error window, another window pop-up that says:

    SVN_FILE_DESCRIPTION has stopped working...Windows searching for
solution.

This is the same error i encounter when trying to run "svn.exe"
mentioned in my earlier mail.

So I am stuck again...

After downloading and setup command line Slik SVN
http://www.sliksvn.com/en/download, I do not have the window error (that
says "The procedure entry point ...") anymore.

However, when I run

  ruby script/plugin install git://github.com/mislav/will_paginate.git

It has another error:

  Plugin not found: ["git://github.com/mislav/will_paginate.git"]

The other option of running "git merge braid/track" still have the same
error.

What else could be missing here ???

Just realized I did managed to install will_paginate already, using the
gem install method. Didn't realize earlier as i kept looking at the
<app>/vendor directory.

At least i can finally continue with the pagination coding. :slight_smile:
