Category pagination fix


Fixes the bug in WordPress 2.7 ( may be in lower version also) in category listing page pagination. When you are using permalink structure as %category%/%postname% , second page URL of category listing page will be category-name/page/2 which WordPress identify “page” as post name. And will return 404 error page. This plug-in will fix the issue. This also fix the next and previous buttons bug in while using custom permalink structure. Bug is still there in WordPress 3 too. So I’m updated this one.


  1. Upload category-pagefix.php to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. You are done


Do I need to do some settings change ?

It can get more generic

It’s an awesome solution, but it fills a really specific niche of a larger problem.

It actually didn’t solve mine but gave me the right direction.

I ended up using a custom 404.php and checking some variables of the query, something as follow:

$q = $wp_query;
$que = $q->query;
if($que[‘page’] >= 2 && $que[‘post_type’] == ‘galeria’){
include ‘taxonomy.php’;

Awesome fix anyway, its stupid how much time this have taken from me and many people.
