Hi Community,

I am working with a search function on my SS-powered Web site and am looking for a little guidance. I would like to paginate my search results. Currently, I have the following contents in m Page.php file with contents that I compiled mostly using the helpful documentation.

	function SearchForm(){
    	$searchText = isset($this->Query) ? $this->Query : 'Search';
    	$searchField = new TextField('Search', '', $searchText);
    	$fields = new FieldSet($searchField);
    	$actions = new FieldSet(
    	                new FormAction('results', 'Go', null, null, 'searchbut', true)
    	return new SearchForm($this, 'SearchForm', $fields, $actions);
   function results($data, $form){
      $data = array(
         'Results' => $form->getResults(),
         'Query' => $form->getSearchQuery(),
         'Title' => 'Search Results'
      return $this->customise($data)->renderWith(array('Page_results', 'Page'));

I have discovered a page in the documentation called "searchcontext," which mentions pagination, but it does not provide an example that extends the code above. Instead, the pagination information reflects a different way of searching. Do I need to learn how to search using the searchcontext, or can I extend the code above somehow? I have tried a few various modifications to both the SS file and the PHP file to no avail.

Thanks in advance for any insight or help,
