Problem Experienced: The page number is not saved in the URL when flipping through pages.
At first we thought it was something to do with will_paginate. However, if you take a look at: http://railscasts.com/episodes/51-will-paginate . You will notice that will_paginate successfully puts the parameters into the URL. It’s not will_paginate; it’s the way we’re using will_paginate.
So now I am looking at where the Rail’s params are used. Markus does something differently with params compared to the simple website from the railscast. Additionally, I’m looking through all the AJAX calls we make on the submissions page. Finally, I am trying to understand how s_table_paginate is participating in pagination.
On a side note: Mike gave me a nice console script to populate the submissions page for markers. Just run script/console and place paste the following code ( ctrl shift v to paste into a terminal ):
a = Assignment.first Student.all.each do |student| student.create_group_for_working_alone_student(a.id) end
