While trying to search with id sorting (and paginating) im getting from the log:
SELECT `audits`.* FROM `audits` ORDER BY version, id DESC LIMIT 50 OFFSET 0
@records = Audit.order("id DESC").page(page).per(50)
I'm guessing that your gem is setting a default scope on the Audit model that orders by version, so at the moment it is ordering in ascending order by the version column, and, only if two records are the same, is it ordering by id in descending order.
To fix this, you can prepend
unscoped to your chain:
