I'm displaying a table of dated items ordered from old to new and am using the full pager. How can I force my page to initially display those items that are current ie. on initial load, display the page containing items that are most current (which might be ?page=17). The user can then page back/forwards to get older or newer items. Drupal 8.
I'm half way there!
In hook_views_pre_build(\Drupal\views\ViewExecutable $view) I figured that the $cnt item was the most current; from there it was a simple matter to calculate which page that item would appear on and to set that as the current page.
$pager = $view->getPager(); $defaultPageNum = round($cnt/$pager->getItemsPerPage()); $pager->setCurrentPage($defaultPageNum);
This works like a charm; however, the pager links at the bottom of the page do not auto-magically update and still indicate that I'm on page 1 (instead of page 62).
Anyone know how I get these links to update?
