page_entries_info using collection.size instead of collection.total_entries #284

I had this error where I am setting the total entries when I call paginate, but page_entries_info was using collection.size instead of my manually set total_entries.

BTW, I discovered this when trying to work around the bug where using group results in a hash being displayed rather than the count being displayed.

It is line 140 of will_paginate/view_helpers.rb

will_paginate_translate keys, :count => collection.size, :model => model_name do |_, opts|

What I think it should be?
will_paginate_translate keys, :count => collection.total_entries, :model => model_name do |_, opts|

I apologize if I am incorrect or I am submitting this in a nonstandard way. This is the first time I've ever submitted an issue on github.

Love the gem, BTW!



That line is inside the condition that there are less than 2 total_pages. That means collection.size should be collection.total_entries. But since you're manually setting total_entries, you're getting unexpected results.

However I still don't understand your use case. Why are you using total_entries? What do you expect page_entries_info to show?
