i would like my WP URLs to be fully in my language so instead of:


i would like to have:

site.com/pagina/2/ (in spanish)

how can i accomplish this? i tried to do simple str_replace on default rules but when accessing site.com/pagina/2/ WP redirects me to site.com/pagina/2/page/2/

any ideas what could be wrong ?

A bit late but maybe usefull for someone else… code goes to functions.php. You have to flush your rewrite rules.


    // Set custom pagination_base
    function mytheme_pagination_base() {
        global $wp_rewrite;

        $wp_rewrite->pagination_base = 'pagina';

    add_action( 'init', 'mytheme_pagination_base' );
