Amazing that this issue still hasn't been fixed.

Spent ages looking for a solution, and then eventually found this plugin.

Solved it straight away.

Excellent.

This solved the issue with the custom permalink structure & pagination links like working (ex: http://www.mysite.com/category/page/2). The links are properly working now.

This plugin basically just contains two small functions. I just added these to my functions.php file in my theme folder, so no need to run an additional plugin.

ADDED:
I put this little function together that will additionally allow you to change the number of posts per page for "categories". You could change this for other types of archive pages. This simple function can be added to your theme's functions.php file.

function category_posts_per_page( $query ) {
    if ( $query->is_category() && $query->is_main_query() ) {
        $query->set( 'posts_per_page', 3 );
    }
}
add_action( 'pre_get_posts', 'category_posts_per_page' );
Wow. Still works!

Multisite. One site I wanted /%category%/%postname%/ in my permalinks and page 2 of the category page ALWAYS shows a 404 error.

This plugin fixed it! I just enabled this plugin on the one site and I'm good to go!

THANK YOU
