Hello, I am trying to use pagination with dataobjects, and it is not working properly.

The function to get Dataobjects looks like this:

function getLOTDs($pageLimit=5){

if(!isset($_GET['start']) || !is_numeric($_GET['start']) || (int)$_GET['start'] < 1) $_GET['start'] = 0;
$SQL_start = (int)$_GET['start'];

$getLOTDs = DataObject::get('LOTD',"","Created DESC","","");

$returnlotds = $getLOTDs->getRange($SQL_start, $pageLimit);

return $returnlotds;

the template to display them looks like this:

<% control getLOTDs %>
<a href="$LOTD">$LName</a>
<% if Top.canDelLOTD %>
<a href="LOTD/delLOTD/$ID">Brisanje</a>
<% end_if %>
<% if Top.canEditLOTD %>
<a href="$EditLOTDForm">Izmijeni</a>
<% end_if %>

<% include LOTDPagination %>

<% end_control %>

the LOTDPagination looks like this:

<% if getLOTDs.MoreThanOnePage %>
<div id="PageNumbers">
<% if getLOTDs.NotFirstPage %>
<a class="prev" href="$getLOTDs.PrevLink" title="View the previous page">Prev</a>
<% end_if %>

<% control getLOTDs.PaginationSummary(4) %>
<% if CurrentBool %>
<% else %>
<% if Link %>
<a href="$Link" title="View page number $PageNum">$PageNum</a>
<% else %>
<% end_if %>
<% end_if %>
<% end_control %>

<% if getLOTDs.NotLastPage %>
<a class="next" href="$getLOTDs.NextLink" title="View the next page">Next</a>
<% end_if %>
<% end_if %>

Can't seem to find an error, the output I get from this is:

Interni Carnet web
Brisanje Izmijeni
Brisanje Izmijeni
Brisanje Izmijeni
Brisanje Izmijeni
Brisanje Izmijeni

Martimiz helped me in another topic with this return from getLOTDs function

return DataObject::get(
$callerClass = 'LOTD',
$filter = "",
$sort = 'Created DESC',
$join = '',
$limit = "$SQL_start, $pageLimit"
