Pagination

All collection tags allow you to specify how many results should be returned, and starting at what number. While there is only one limit field, there are two ways to determine the pagination. The first is to specify the start number (1-based). The second is to specify the page number (also 1-based). Eg:

{% template_collection start:4 %} OR {% template_collection page:2 %}

If both the start and page arguments are present, the page argument will be ignored.
