Frustrating and ongoing search problem (2 posts)

    I have only recently started using WordPress having been required to move from Blogware

    So far everything is okay apart from one very annoying problem

    All my posts are associated with one of 7 categories and will have at least one tag also associated

    The problem I have is displaying the second page of a category search (or tag)

    For example if my blog has 200 posts and it displays 50 per page then I would expect 50 posts shown and links to pages 1 2 3 4 at the bottom and this it does do

    The problem is using a more defined search, for example if I have 60 posts under a category "Food" I limit my search to this I get the first 50 posts shown and links to pages 1 2 as expected at the bottom. Now

    clicking on 2 should get me the last 10 posts for category "Food" but what I instead get is page 2 of all 200 posts and I get links to all four pages again 1 2 3 4

    What I obviously want is a way to page through the final posts for that category. Surely it must be possible

    This is not theme specific as its the same with any theme I try. I just don't know where to loook now and it's frustrating

    The problem here has to be theme specific, as it's (probably - would need a link to verify) to do with the way the links are set up. If you can provide the code for your search navigation structure, someone will be able to tell you what you need to change!

    Also, if you have a <base href=""> defined, that could be the cause of the problem.
