wordpress 3.8.1 category page 2 error 404 not found / custom post type


Staff member
first the problem, then the tries.


The problem is that i get a 404 NOT FOUND error if i visit another page than the first category page.
On the category page i have a normal pagination. The first site works. (<a href="http://mypage.com/category/properties" rel="nofollow noreferrer">http://mypage.com/category/properties</a>)

After i click on the "Next page" button I'm on the page <a href="http://mypage.com/category/properties/page/2" rel="nofollow noreferrer">http://mypage.com/category/properties/page/2</a> and got the error 404 NOT FOUND.

<strong>But why?</strong>


First I tried this Question <a href="https://stackoverflow.com/questions/8269713/custom-post-type-and-taxonomy-pagination-404-error">Custom Post Type and Taxonomy pagination 404 error</a>, but the
and the queries below doesnt work.

I tried this, too. <a href="http://wordpress.org/support/topic/one-again-page-not-found-on-second-and-further-pages" rel="nofollow noreferrer">http://wordpress.org/support/topic/one-again-page-not-found-on-second-and-further-pages</a>
But the query_posts try has the same result as the WP_Query try.

The event with the pre query i tried, too. But the problem is the same -.-
