[resolved] Broken Pagination Links (5 posts)

    Hey guys I'm very new to wordpress and have been able to get most of my website up due to reading tons of articles and tutorials but I seem to mess up my pagination linking on my portfolio section.

    Heres my problem:

    When you are there, it shows my latest portfolio projects. But when you scroll down to the paginated links to go to the next page of projects:
    It doesn't work. A 404 error occurs. It has something to do with a broken link but I can't figure it out. Before this error occurred, I was changing the links around on the pages but was unable to undo the problem. I tried deleting all the pages and started all over and still the error occurs. Is there anything I can do to reset something? The theme is bizz and if there is anywhere I can go look to fix this I will greatly appreciate it.

    Is the custom post type slug also called 'portfolio'? This can break things on pagination. To test, try to change the listing page slug to something else, like portfolio-items, and see if it works then?

    It works! Simple as that. I changed the slug but I would like the name to be 'portfolio.' Is there any I can get around that? If not its cool. Thanks a lot pal!

    the only way around it would be to rename the post type slug instead. However, I reckon that doing that would mean having to reenter your post data, as WordPress would regard the new post type slug as a new post type... plus you'd then have to modify all queries that referenced the old 'portfolio' post type.

    Before I tried deleting everything (the portfolio page and posts) and then re-adding my portfolio projects to see if would work but it didn't. I wouldn't know how to modify the queries and all that since I'm still a beginner at this. All I do is make graphics ;D Thanks a lot for the input!
