This issue should be easy enough to understand, without props, but I’m going to use them anyway 😉
Scroll to the bottom and try to go to the next page (page 2).
Got a 404 error too, didn’t you?
How do I fix it?
Permalink structure is: /%category%/%postname%/May 26, 2016 at 10:24 pm #18156
I’m not sure why that’s happening, I’ve never ran into an issue like that. It seems to work fine on the demo, as well as some of my local installs. I’m using the “Day and Name” settings –
/%year%/%monthnum%/%day%/%postname%/Not sure if that has anything to do with it or not.
Maybe try changing the settings around to see if it works?
I’d also check to see if you have any conflicting plugins, by temporary uninstalling them to see if any changes are made.May 26, 2016 at 10:39 pm #18159
If I change to your suggested:
…pagination works fine.
I’ve tried with all plugins disabled, including plugins your theme requires, and it has no impact on the pagination when using:
…for a permalink structure.
However, I have to use that permalink structure, as the category represents each state, and the postname is the physical address of properties for sale.
Why would pagination work with year, month, day & postname, but not category & postname?May 26, 2016 at 11:02 pm #18161
Apparently, there is a long-standing category/postname issue. There have even been plugins created to fix it (https://wordpress.org/plugins/category-pagination-fix/), though they don’t seem to work on this current version of WordPress when combined with your Aspire Theme.May 26, 2016 at 11:28 pm #18162
I’ve done a lot of reading about this issue today, including articles dating back over 7 years. I can’t believe this issue hasn’t been addressed in the WordPress Core. What’s even more baffling is this is the first time I’ve come upon this issue, and I use the:
…Custom Permalink Structure, on just about every website I set up. This is the first time I’ve had an issue.
This certainly doesn’t appear to be a theme issue, so you are welcome to close this as resolved.
For historical purposes, anyone else who stumbles on this issue, take a look at: https://wordpress.org/plugins/fv-top-level-cats/May 26, 2016 at 11:30 pm #18163
That’s good to know, I never heard about that issue. The plugin you linked to hasn’t been updated in over 2 years so that may be the reason it’s not working properly (since there has been a lot of changes to WordPress from the time it was released/updated).
I’ll send a note to a few devs I know to see if they have any ideas. It would probably be a good idea to post in the WP forums to see if any of them have went through the same issue and have a solution. If they have a solution I’d love to know so we can pass it along in case anyone else runs into a similar situation.May 26, 2016 at 11:46 pm #18165
We must have been replying at the same time, I’m just now seeing your latest reply.
Yes I agree, it would be great if this can finally get resolved ASAP, as this is a serious issue. Can’t believe it’s been like this for so long. We should definitely get someone on this that can get it fixed.May 26, 2016 at 11:52 pm #18167
Yes, I can’t believe how long this has gone, without being addressed in Core. There are a bunch of posts in the WordPress Org forums about this – even more on 3rd party sites.
I wonder if there is something specific some themes/frameworks do to remediate this issue, that other themes/frameworks miss? Almost has to be, right?
I tried a bunch of recommended solutions, from various websites, and none of them worked, except for https://wordpress.org/plugins/fv-top-level-cats/
And, to be clear (for those who may stumble on this thread later), the FV Top Level Cats plugin is actively being updated.June 20, 2016 at 2:39 pm #18385
Any luck with this Wes?June 21, 2016 at 10:24 am #18391
Unfortunately I haven’t heard back with any solutions just yet.
