unbindModel() and paginate() gotcha in CakePHP 1.2
Mar 06, 2008 @ 12:59:00

Tarique Sani has pointed out a little "gotcha" he came across when working in his CakePHP application a while back, specifically with the unbindModel and paginate methods.

A small note to myself regarding a gotcha which I ran into today morning with the built in unbindModel method which lets you disassociate model relations on the fly.

He sets up a situation where his model works correctly in one case but reverts back to the bindings it started with in another. He provides a way around it - an optional parameter that forces the CakePHP framework to treat things correctly.
