Description: ------------ PHP5 will raise a Fatal Error when assigning to $this. Pager 2.x constructor uses this hack to act as a delegate. It was the only known way to maintain BC with Pager 1.x. WORKAROUND =========== This is how your PHP 4 script should look like: <?php require_once 'Pager/Pager.php'; $pager = &new Pager($params); //... ?> Change the above code to the following one if you are using PHP 5: <?php require_once 'Pager/Sliding.php'; // or Jumping.php $pager = &new Pager_Sliding($params); //or Pager_Jumping() //... ?>
