Support » Fixing WordPress » Author permalink paging problem

  • Hi there,

    We’ve been using a custom permalink structure on our site to place the Author’s name at the beginning or our URL. The structure is /%author%/%category%/%postname%/ and the URL is

    This works great for all posts and the first page of the above URL. However, if you try to go to you will see that it redirects to another post on blog. Another developer and I have tried a lot of different paging fixes that other people on these forums have suggested. However, we’re still having the same problem. I’ve regenerated the .htaccess, still no luck.

    Any ideas on what could be causing this?

    # Make sure to end your structure with either %post_id% or %postname% (e.g. /%year%/%monthnum%/%day%/%postname%/) so that each permalink points to an individual post.
    # For performance reasons, it is not a good idea to start your permalink structure with the category, tag, author, or postname fields. The reason is that these are text fields, and using them at the beginning of your permalink structure it takes more time for WordPress to distinguish your Post URLs from Page URLs (which always use the text “page slug” as the URL), and to compensate, WordPress stores a lot of extra information in its database (so much that sites with lots of Pages have experienced difficulties). So, it is best to start your permalink structure with a numeric field, such as the year or post ID
