I am working on a website that is a customised WordPress installation running WP 5.2.4.

There are a number of categories, as follows:

  • main_category (id 71)
  • other_cat_1
  • other_cat_2
  • etc.

The post archives have been customised to display as follows:

When you go to… domain.com/category/main_category/ …everything is fine. It is using the default pagination settings, shows the default 10 posts per page as set in ‘Settings > Reading’ in the admin portal, has pagination links at the bottom. All fine.

If you look at any other category though e.g. … domain.com/category/other_cat/ …it shows 5 posts per page, and no pagination.

If you manually navigate to what would be page later pages, e.g. … domain.com/category/other_cat/page/2/ … it shows the same content as page 1.

I want to undo all this, and have all categories simply use the default pagination, number of post per page from ‘Reading’ settings, pagination links etc.

This is the archive.php code (I assume all changes will be here). I can see bits related to the problem here, e.g. “if($main_id==71)” which is the correctly working category. For the life of me though I can’t figure out how to get all the categories to work the same.

Thanks in advance for the help folks.
