  • I want a page that shows almost all the resources with pagination but skip the first 5 resources. This is my code, but it wont "jump" over the first 5 resources. Pagination is working. What am I doing wrong?

      $output = $modx->runSnippet('getPage', array(
        'elementClass' => 'modSnippet',
        'element' => 'getResources',
        'parents' => $sid,
        'limit' => 5,
        'depth' => 1,
        'pageVarKey' => 'page',
        'totalVar' => 'total',
        'offset' => 5,
        'tpl' => 'tpl-Under-Side-Liste-Item',
        'showHidden' => 1,
        'pageFirstTpl' => '<li class="control"><a[[+classes]][[+title]] href="[[+href]]">Første</a></li>',
        'pageLastTpl' => '<li class="control"><a[[+classes]][[+title]] href="[[+href]]">Siste</a></li>',
        'pageNavOuterTpl' => '[[+prev]][[+pages]][[+next]]',
        'pageActiveTpl' => '<li[[+activeClasses]]>[[+pageNo]]</li>',
        'includeTVs' => 1
      ));

    • getPage automatically determines the offset based on the limit and page being requested. Your attempts to set it to 5 are unfortunately futile.
      • How could I then trim away five results so that it will show all the other resources?

          You would need to exclude them from the total via where conditions for getResources or something, or we would need to add an initial offset feature to getPage so it could handle the calculations differently.
          • Any chance that you would be willing to update getPage to add this functionality? I am actually in need of the exact same thing: I need to skip the first six resources and start my pagination with the seventh.

            • Hi thorjarle and designcouch, did you ever get this to work?
              • Hi all, I found a workaround and it seems to work for me. I'm posting it here for anyone interested.
                It requires a change in the getPage snippet.
                Around line 16, change the code to:
                $properties['offset'] = (!empty($properties['limit']) && !empty($properties['page'])) ? ($properties['limit'] * ($properties['page'] - 1)) + 1 : 0;


                For me, only one resource had to be skipped, that's why I added + 1. I guess you could add more here to skip more resources.

                Don't know if this is the best way to achieve this and will test more if it really works as expected.
                • @michelle84, I combined your solution and Jason's - changed that line to:
                  $properties['offset'] = (!empty($properties['limit']) && !empty($properties['page'])) ? ($properties['limit'] * ($properties['page'] - 1)) + $initialOffset : 0;

                  and then included this in my getPage call:
                  $initialOffset=`1`

                  This allows you to customize the offset per call instead of hard coding it into the snippet. I don't see any reason why this couldn't VERY easily have been added to getPage by now - Jason?
