Laravel 5.1 specifing current page for pagination

Been working on this for far too long with no results. I have tried.

`\Illuminate\Pagination\Paginator::setCurrentPage($current_page);`


returns
Call to protected method Illuminate\Pagination\Paginator::setCurrentPage()


\Paginator::setCurrentPage($current_page);


returns
Call to protected method Illuminate\Pagination\Paginator::setCurrentPage()


\DB::getPaginator()->setCurrentPage($current_page);


returns
call_user_func_array() expects parameter 1 to be a valid callback, class 'Illuminate\Database\MySqlConnection' does not have a method 'getPaginator'


$tmp = new Post( ); $tmp->getConnection()->setCurrentPage($current_page);


returns
call_user_func_array() expects parameter 1 to be a valid callback, class 'Illuminate\Database\MySqlConnection' does not have a method 'getPaginator'


How can I specify the page? I need to specify it manually.

I had hoped it to be as easy as
$model->find( )->paginate($per_page, $page)

Answer

Suppose you have $users to paginate in your UserController, you might do:

public function index()
{
    $currentPage = 3; // You can set this to any page you want to paginate to

    // Make sure that you call the static method currentPageResolver()
    // before querying users
    Paginator::currentPageResolver(function () use ($currentPage) {
        return $currentPage;
    });

    $users = \App\User::paginate(5);

    return view('user.index', compact('users'));
}

I believe this applies to Laravel 5.0 and above. Have to check on that.
