Support » Plugin: Authors List » Pagination doesn’t work on a bilingual (multilingual) site

  • Hello, here is a bilingual or rather a multilingual poetry site. The language plugin I am using is Polylang. The Authors List plugin works in English all right but when I switch to Russian it stops working. It paginates or perhaps it thinks it does but no new pages are created. I am at my wits end. I’ve tried this and that, and yes I’d disabled all the other plugins just to see if some conflict prevents it from functioning properly. Mind you that it works if there is a single page (there are too many authors for a single page) but no with pagination. I realize that this could be a problem with something else but I have no idea what it is. I experimented with different numbers of authors per page, from 6 to 60. and the first page always works but not the subsequent ones.

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

    Hi @fightingships

    Thanks for reporting the issue. I’ll set up Polylang on my install and figure out what’s going on and how to resolve it.

    Thank you. Again it could be something something else -an arcane database issue? – unfortunately I do not have another site with many authors (so we could paginate) for expermination sake, but I’d be waiting for a solution.

    You’re welcome.

    The problem is in the URL generated for the pagination.

    The /page/2/ part should be /страница/2/

    I’m not getting that issue on my install because the Russian version still uses /page/2 format so it works fine.

    I’m not sure where to translate that so I can get the issue and figure out a solution. Are you using Polylang PRO or the free version?

    Thank you, you are brilliant – and very observant. Stupid me, how didn’t I see it right away? I am using the free version but I don’t think it makes any difference, the problem is with the URL and something messes it up – thank you for pointing this out. I think I am going to fix this with a redirect for the time being.

    Yes, I fixed it, I added a redirect for each page, it’s a crude fix but at least now it works.

    Thank you.

    Hi @fightingships

    You’re welcome and thank you. No worries, happens to all of us 🙂

    In my tests it didn’t switch to the Russian translation for the pagination in the URLs, it remained /page/2, I’ll try to replicate the issue so it can be solved. Thanks for reporting it.
