Permalink Custom Structure + Category Base (7 posts)

    We've set our blog home to be the page a static page "news-information".

    Our permalink structure is like this:
    /news-information/%category%/%postname%/

    Our category base is set like this:
    ./news-information

    The problem
    The permalink works perfect, and the category base works perfect.

    • http://www.example.com/news-information/category/postname/
    • http://www.example.com/news-information/category/

    Paged categories do not:

    • http://www.example.com/news-information/category/page/2/ - Not Found

    Anyone have a solution? I've searched all of the permalink troubleshooting pages, and rebuilt my .htaccess file multiple times, and still I can't get anything to work.

    Our category base is set like this:
    ./news-information

    Your category base should only be a web-safe word, no slashes or periods.

    No, that doesn't work. If you remove the ./ from the category base, the permalink doesn't work.

    If I could find the post that instructed you on why you use ./, I might be able to figure this out.

    But again, no.

    Here's what I can find, but no definitive answers:

    How to remove the "category" in the link?

    How to remove the "category" folder

    A very useful page here, it should help me figure this out somehow:

    Why not just move your blog to a directory named news-information?

    We actually have a site set up exactly like that. But the issue then is what about the "pages" you want to be at domain level? We have some sophisticated re-write stuff going on to accomplish it, but it's a pain to deal with and/or modify.
