    Have you tried resetting your custom permalinks back to the default setting via Settings -> Permalinks? If this works, then review Using_Permalinks before setting a custom permalink structure back up again.

    Do the category pages use a custom query?

    Hi Esmi — I have this in my theme’s index.php:

    if ( is_home() ) {
    query_posts($query_string . '&cat=-18');

    I think the issue is certainly permalinks. On default, the older / newer links worked fine:


    Returning to what we normally use, %category%, causes the link to become:


    which doesn’t work.

    Thanks for the tip… any ideas on resolution?

    Thanks again,

    if ( is_home() ) {
    $paged = (get_query_var('paged')) ? get_query_var('paged') : 1;
    query_posts($query_string . '&cat=-18&paged=' .$paged);

    I’m also having a similar problem. If anyone has any ideas (I’ve read page after page on fixes, but nothing’s working), I’d appreciate it.
