I have notice a difference of behaviour with the
<?= $this->Paginator->first('<'< ' . __('first')) ?>
<?= $this->Paginator->prev('< ' . __('previous')) ?>
When you are on the first page or a single page,
the first does not show anything and the second shows the " < previous" button, disabled.
How can I make the “previous” behave like the “first” paginator element?
By the way the same applies to the other extremity of the range:
<?= $this->Paginator->next(__('next') . ' >') ?>
<?= $this->Paginator->last(__('last') . ' >>') ?>
