I seem to be able to work around the categories pagination issue, but I'm really struggling to get the authors pagination to work.
I've noticed that if you substitute the a in author for an upper case A, it works (eg. ?author=1&paged=2 gets a 404 but ?Author=1&paged=2 does...).
I cannot for the life of me figure out how to put a re-write in to capitalise it and now, I can't really go down that route anyway as I've set the permalinks to a custom %categories%/%postname%/ and got the categories to paginate using a plugin fix.
Now (after the fix) I can't get the authors to work at all (even with messing with the casing). All older post links create a 404.
I dont even know if this is the route to be taking... its seriously driving me mental!
If anyone has a fix for the categories and the authors (or just how to fix the authors to show on a custom permalinks setting, I'd be REALLY, REALLY grateful (which isnt a lot, but you know - it'd be your good deed for the day).
My users really need to be able to see all of their tickets.
