Using the latest version of WordPress I've set up my permalink structure for categories something like this:
This works fine except for the page links like example.com/cows/page/2/ just give WP's "not found" error. It works fine if my category base is something else though, like:
At first I thought it was something wrong with the mod_rewrite stuff. If I type in index.php?category_name=cows&paged=2 it shows up just fine. I'm also pretty sure mod_rewrite is working normally. All my other rewriting rules work perfectly, and if I set it to redirect (instead of rewrite) it also works just fine.
My guess is that somewhere along the line WordPressitself checks the actual URL given and does something screwy with it. Does anybody else have this problem? Know of a workaround? Anything?
