Change blog and category url ( page/2)

When I am on the blog, or category page, clicking on pagination for next page I get URL and the same for category /blog/category/page/2.

How to change that to remove “page” from URL. More to be like blog/category/2

Hello @pavlito,

Thanks for writing in! Regretfully the /page/ in the permalink is a WordPress default. You cannot remove it. It will result in an error 404 if you do so.


@ruenel Thanks.

So it means, the /page/ should remain as it is.

Can I at least translate it?

Hi @pavlito,

You can change the pagination base word by adding the following code into your child theme’s functions.php

function custom_page_url_word() 
    global $wp_rewrite;
    $wp_rewrite->pagination_base = 'strona';
    $wp_rewrite->extra_rules_top['shop/strona/([0-9]{1,})/?$'] = 'index.php?post_type=product&paged=$matches[1]';
add_action( 'init', 'custom_page_url_word' );

Please remember that the above code will work if copied as it is and don’t conflict with any existing style.
Please note that the code provided serves only as a guide to help you get started custom coding on your own if there’s no option offered in our theme or the products we bundle.

Thank you on answers.

I used the example from the StackOverflow link, and it is working fine.

Glad to hear that, @pavlito!
