So on my website I have tag pages to show a list of posts using that category or tag. For example: https://www.dansenseienglish.com/vocabulary/
However, if you try to click the page 2 button, or the next button you get 404’d even though there are more posts in the list. How can I fix this?October 19, 2021 at 9:35 am #43951
Thank you for your question and thanks for using BoldGrid Post and Page Builder for WordPress!
So when you see this type of 404 error the good thing is you know that your actual content still resides on the site somewhere. I think the issue may be tied to your permalinks. Sometimes when making changes, especially to your blog post structure (categories, tags), you’ll need a simple permalinks refresh to rebuild the database.
To refresh permalinks from your dashboard navigate to Settings<<Permalinks and simply click Save Changes. You should also flush any cache associated with the site after doing so.
I hope this helps. Please reach back out to us if you need assistance with anything else!October 20, 2021 at 8:50 am #43973Dan HewittGuest
I did as you suggested and I am still having the same issue. The first page of all my category or tag lists are fine but the second pages for each one don’t work. Do you have any other ideas?

Hi Dan, sorry to hear your still having the issue. I reviewed your site and I don’t see that you have a page setup to display your archive post. Try creating a blank page simply titled “Blog” and then navigate to Appearance<<Customize<<Design<<Homepage and change the “Post page“.
After you do that go back into your Permalinks give it another refresh and flush cache again.
Please let us know if this works for you.October 21, 2021 at 8:22 am #44026Dan HewittGuest
Would that change the homepage? I already have the pages set up for categories such as http://www.dansenseienglish.com/vocabulary http://www.dansenseienglish.com/grammar and so on but only the first page works for each category.
If I make a blank page called blog – will that fix the second page issue?October 21, 2021 at 9:00 am #44034
No you wouldn’t be making any changes to the homepage at all. The “Post page” option just resides within the Design<<Homapage tab below the option to set a the actual homepage itself.
I’m asking you to do this because we want to try to force archive functionality on your website (which I don’t see at all). Once this is set all of your blog post will be accessible through https://www.dansenseienglish.com/blog. And it should add pagination to the rest of your archive pages as well.
The first step is to create the “Blog” page itself, then make sure you set the “Post Page” from Customize<<Design<<Homapage to the Blog page you just created.
Still be sure to refresh perms and flush cache after you complete these steps.October 22, 2021 at 11:22 am #44056Dan HewittGuest
Hi again Brandon,
thanks for the clarification. I did as you asked.
The functionality works correctly on the new blog page, but not for the category or tag pages. Any other ideas?
Thanks in advance.October 22, 2021 at 1:20 pm #44087
Sorry to hear this is still giving you trouble. Another possibility is that one of your plugins is interfering with pagination. It could be something like an SEO plugin interfering with permalinks. Try temporarily disabling your plugins one by one, starting with any SEO plugins you’re running, to see if you can identify a conflict.
