- Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress.
- Which post titles does this affect?
Posts with titles and slugs made entirely of numbers seem to be considered pagination by WordPress. Instead of getting paginated summary pages or “post not found” errors, this plug-in allows for the correct posts to be shown.
- What about WordPress 3.6?
WordPress seems to have addressed this issue internally, so this plug-in is no longer required.
