I'm sorry if it is not the right place to ask and suggest but I was not sure where to contact you.
I have been trying to make a pagination of articles without using DQL. For me, it defies the purpose of the ORM to do DQL for things like pagination.
After some research I found the method findBy() which allows me to select X element starting at position Y.
Yet, to know the number of pages, I needed to count the number of elements in my database and I didn't find any count() method in the Entity Repository.
I was wondering why there is no count method ?
Moreover, I did my own entity Repository that extends the default one to have a count method like this :
as I am new to Doctrine I don't know if this is a good solution, if it is not, could you add a count method to the repository ?
Thank you very much.
