      1. set public $maxdisplay = 18; in lib/outputcomponents.php to 5
      2. Create database activity.
      3. Add more than 5 entries
      4. Go to View single option
      5. Click on page 5 and try to access the rest of the entries without changing manually the url.

      p.s. it can be tested with any other interface with pagination that has more than 5 entries.

    Description

      I changed the maxdisplay to 5 because the section I have to show the pagination is not big enough but I found a problem. The values to calculate which pages to display are hardcoded instead of being relative, for example:

      When viewing an interface with pagination, it only shows the first 5 pages and the user can't access the rest.
      I created a database activity with more than 5 entries and when I click on "View single" and navigate to page number 5, I can't access the rest unless I change the URL manually but then I wouldn't see the current page.

      I think this is something very specific, but I think the suggested solution can help everyone in a similar situation.
