For example i've domain.com/about?project=1 but i've permalinks enabled and i'm using thins to generate the pagination paginate_links. The proble is that the links generated are like this domain.com/about?project=1/page/1 and it breaks everything because the project is taken as 1/page/1

There is a way to get domain.com/about/project/1/page/1 in the paginations links? I'm submitting that from a form using get to display the project.

To add arguments to the links in paginate posts, use the 'add_args' argument in the function. You have to pass the arguments as an associative array. So, to add project=1 to the end of all your links, you would do this:

global $wp_query;
paginate_links(array(
  'total' => $wp_query->max_num_pages,
  'current' => (get_query_var('paged') ? get_query_var('paged') : 1),
  'base' => 'http://domain.com/about/%_%',
  'format' => 'page/%#%',
  'add_args' => array( 'project' => 1 /* or whatever the project number is*/ ),
));

Hope that helped!

EDIT

To get domain.com/about/projects/1/page/1, you can add a custom permastruct. I'm going to assume about is a page.

function wpse21802_init(){
  add_rewrite_rule( '([^/]+)/projects/([^/])/?$', 'index.php?pagename=$matches[1]&project=$matches[2]', 'top' );
  add_rewrite_rule( '([^/]+)/projects/([^/])/page/(/d+)/?$', 'index.php?pagename=$matches[1]&project=$matches[2]&paged=$matches[3]', 'top' );
}
add_action( 'init', 'wpse21802_init' );

After adding that code, flush the rewrite rules by going to Settings -> Permalinks.

But that generates domain.com/about/page/1?project=1 –  Sein Oxygen Jul 2 '11 at 20:38
    
"I'm submitting that from a form using get to display the project." Project is a $_GET variable in that link, no? 'add_args' => array( 'project' => absint($_GET['project']) –  John P Bloch Jul 2 '11 at 21:18
    
Yes, but again read the main question: There is a way to get domain.com/about/project/1/page/1 in the paginations links? I'm submitting that from a form using get to display the project. –  Sein Oxygen Jul 3 '11 at 2:29
    
I updated my answer, but I'd also like to point out that WordPress already supports that url structure just from using page hierarchy. –  John P Bloch Jul 3 '11 at 12:43
