Seeking advice on best way to proceed with pagination for section

Hi there,

I am modifying the Ink theme. I added a photo diary feature. Currently, I am using:

{{ range first 12 .Data.Pages }}
{{ if ne .Section "photos" }}

to call the first 12 pages in this section. Each photo post is a page bundle. This works well.

I would like to add pagination in this section. I plan to copy partials/pagination.html to photos/photopaginate.html, then use {{ template "photos/photopage.html" . }} in my photos/list.html file. Would that be the right approach to take? What else do I have to look out for?

I don’t exactly know what is a right way. But I usually did this when it comes to paginator:

{{ $pagi := .Paginate (where .Data.Pages "Section" "!=" "photos") 12 }}

But in case you only want to do paginating for first 12 photos. It will take a bit sweat:

{{ $photosPerPage := 3 }}
{{ $cond := where .Data.Pages "Section" "!=" "photos" }}
{{ $pagi := .Paginate (first 12 $cond) $photosPerPage }}

And then, apply it to 2 loops, yes two:

{{ range $pagi.Pages }}...{{ end }}
{{ range $pagi.Pagers }}
  <a href='{{ .URL | absLangURL }}'>{{ .PageNumber }}</a>
{{ end }}
