Buddypress : get the group pagination working outside the original template pages

Hi guys

I have a problem with Buddypress, pagination and groups :

I added the plugin goup tag to add a specific tag for groups and I need to display a group list with a specific tag on a custom page and keep the pagination working.

I pimped up a page which can do that getting the function of the group tag plugin and it works.
However, the pagination is not working.

<?php function gtags_show_groups_for_tag1( $groups ) {
		global $bp, $groups_template, $gtags_done;

			$tag = 'espionnage';

			if ( $tag ) {
				$gtags_groups = gtags_get_groups_by_tag( null, null, false, false, $tag );
				$groups_template->groups = $gtags_groups[groups];
				// turn off pagination
				$groups_template->group_count = $gtags_groups[total];
				$groups_template->total_group_count = $gtags_groups[total];
				$groups_template->pag_num = $gtags_groups[total];
				$groups_template->pag_page = 1;
				$groups_template->pag_links = '';
				$groups = $gtags_groups;

			$gtags_done = true; // only run it once, so that the widgets function shows normal groups, not tags.
			return $groups;
		add_filter( 'bp_has_groups', 'gtags_show_groups_for_tag1', 5, 2 );
		if ( bp_has_groups() ) : ?>

then i put the original group loop + close everything and original buddypress pagination function.

I noticed that there is a " // turn off pagination" but I cant figure out where it is turned off.

Thanks for your help / advice

    Thanks for answering.
    I want to display a list of groups on a custom page created with wordpress, let's call it "my tribes". I copied the original loop in index.php and groups-loop.php (in the groups subdirectory). The groups are displaying right with the pagination BUT the problem is that the paginatio is not working.
    Once I click on the 2nd page, I have message returnng "no group"

    I noticed that the link to go to the 2 page is

    whereas on the original group page it is :
