Time crunch, so this will be quick.  I didn't want to go hunting for how to sort paginated results in CakePHP using a related model field again.  I actually found my answer on Stack Overflow.  The original poster had it right, so I'm not sure if it was a CakePHP bug or what (I don't have an account or I would correct it... it's on the list of to-dos though).

Using a Related Model Field To Sort Paginated Results

  1. <th><?php echo $paginator->sort('title'); ?></th>
  2. <th><?php echo $paginator->sort('code'); ?></th>
  3. <th><?php echo $paginator->sort('Location', 'AvjobsLocation.name'); ?></th>

Notice how that last one is just a little different... just specify the related model, followed by the field to sort on.... duh!

 

Cheers,
