"Paging" always true

I've come across a possible bug with pagination.

Basically, the Perch variable "paging" always seems to be set to 1, so the standard <perch:if exists="paging"> test doesn't work correctly.

It's occurring while listing posts in the Blog app v4.1, with Perch v2.6.0.

It's not a serious problem - I'm using the countermeasure <perch:if id="number_of_pages" match="gt" value="1"> to get round the problem.

Just thought you ought to be aware. Let me know if you need further details.

Thanks, Jon

Thanks Jon, I'll take a look into it.

Just wanted to chip in that the 2.6.2 update fixed the same issue I was having when paginating in core Pages using perch_content_custom -- the <perch:if exists="paging"> works again.

Also, big thanks to Jon for the clever work-around.
