Support » Fixing WordPress » navigation via ‘older entries’ link problem

  • I am on 2.8.3 and when I, from the front page, click the ‘older entries’ link it takes me to page 2 of my blog but when Click it again I get a blank page and instead of the URL being: (this works if manually typed in)

    it is:;http://myurl_me_uk:80/page/2/

    What’s wrong? I would like to fix it before I upgrade to 2.8.4.

    Thanx in advance for any help.

    What permalink structure are you using?

    Never seen an URL like that one. It looks like you have a permalink problem. You tried to do something like this, right? I think you must have an error in that wp-404-handler file.

    the permalinks structure I’m using is:

    The 404-handler is the same as the one at the end of your link except the line:
    $_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'] = substr($qs, strpos($qs, ':80')+3);

    I have changed it to the same as the one at the end of the link and it goes to:
    but is a blank page.

    Any ideas?

    I’ve now upgraded to 2.8.4 but it’s still doing it.


    Any one?





    I’ve got exactly the same problem. Have you managed to find a solution?

    I’ve had a search around the internet and found different suggestions (e.g. changing the htaccess file, changing bits of code, etc), but nothing has fixed the problem yet.

    I notice that if I remove permalinks and just have the custom link structure ( then the 404 error doesn’t happen and it goes to the correct page, but when having permalinks the error occurs.

    I also had the same problem on IIS after upgrading to the 2.8.x WordPress stream. apljdi’s post above actually helped solve my problem! More specifically, make sure you use the 404 code from this site:

    I still got problems. Nothing seems to do the trick.

    if the permalink structure is set to default (mysite/?=p123) the the ‘older posts’ link works fine after the second page.
