Blog pagination showing on items filtered by tags


I’m in the process of building a blog for my site.

I am a bit stuck with displaying items with the same tag on a page. I’ve managed get the tags to show up on an individual article, but when I click on the tag, a page that opens up displays the pagination of the main blog page. How do I set the pagination to show only on the main blog page and is there a way to show the tag title on the tag page?

Here is my code
main blog page tamplate - magazin.php

                    <h1><?= $page->title()->html() ?></h1>

                    <section class="container p-0">
                        <div class="row p-0 gx-5 gy-5">
                            <!-- articles -->
                            <?php foreach($articles as $article): ?>
                            <div class="col-12 col-md-6">

                                <?php snippet('article', ['article' => $article]) ?>

                        <?php endforeach ?>

                        <nav class="mt-5">
                            <?php if ($pagination->hasPrevPage()): ?> 
                            <a href="<?= $pagination->prevPageURL() ?>" class="button btn-small btn-dark-grey rounded">‹</a>
                            <?php endif ?>

                            <?php foreach ($pagination->range(10) as $r): ?>
                            <a<?= $pagination->page() === $r ? ' aria-current="page"' : '' ?> href="<?= $pagination->pageURL($r) ?>" class="button btn-small btn-dark-grey rounded">
                                <?= $r ?>
                            <?php endforeach ?>

                            <?php if ($pagination->hasNextPage()): ?>
                            <a href="<?= $pagination->nextPageURL() ?>" class="button btn-small btn-dark-grey rounded">›</a>
                            <?php endif ?>

magazin.php controller

return function($kirby, $site, $pages, $page) {

        $shared = $kirby->controller('site' , compact('page', 'pages', 'site', 'kirby'));
        // fetch the basic set of pages
        $articles = $page->children()->listed()->flip();
        // fetch all tags
        $tags = $articles->pluck('tags', ',', true);
        // add the tag filter
        if($tag = param('tag')) {
          $articles = $articles->filterBy('tags', $tag, ',');
        // apply pagination
        $articles   = $articles->paginate(10);
        $pagination = $articles->pagination();
        return A::merge($shared , compact('articles', 'tags', 'tag', 'pagination'));


article.php template

                                <h1><?= $page->title()->html() ?></h1>
                                <time datetime="<?= $page->date()->toDate('j M, Y') ?>" class="color-grey d-block"><?= $page->date()->toDate('j M, Y') ?></time>

                                $tags = $page->tags()->split(',');
                                foreach($tags as $tag): ?>
                                <a href="<?= $page->parent()->url(['params' => ['tag' => $tag]]) ?>" class="button btn-small btn-dark-grey">#<?= $tag ?></a>
                                <?php endforeach ?>

                                <p class="lead mt-3"><?= $page->intro() ?></p>

                                <?= $page->text()->toBlocks() ?>

Also, with some of the code I found on the forum, my url was showing up as magazin/tag:tag+name however that didn’t work so I had to change to the code above, now it works.
Is it meant to be a colon or a semicolon?

EDIT: I now realise that the pagination is actually breaking up the items under that tag. So it’s actually showing the number of pages for that particular tag.

Remaining questions: how do I get the #tag title to show up on the tag page?

Do you happen to have an $articles variable inside the shared $site controller?

EDIT: now that I think about it, it shouldn’t matter anyway.

No I don’t but it doesn’t seem to be required for the article template.

I managed to display the tag title on a tag page with this code included in the main blog template.

                        <small>Tag:</small> <?= esc($tag) ?>
                        <a href="<?= $page->url() ?>" aria-label="Magazin">&times;</a>
                    <?php endif ?>```
