No, it's different and won't work - I looked at that yesterday.

I know they recommend switching away from classic_pagination but
unfortunately the alternative they recommend doesn't provide the
same features. I did try and port our code when we moved to rails 2
and I gave up in the end.

The whole plugins business is a complete pain...

I've put a zip of my vendor directory up - you can download it from:


If you unzip that into your rails tree it should get you going.
