Pagination for Category does not work
I am trying to implement pagination for category items listing archive.php page. But this does not work. Below is the code that I am using.
$cat = single_cat_title("", false); $cat_ID = get_cat_ID ($cat); $args = array( 'posts_per_page' => '2', 'post_type' => 'mathematics', 'cat' => $cat_ID, 'paged' => get_query_var('paged',1) ); $posts = new WP_Query($args);
echo paginate_links(array( 'base' => '%_%', 'format' => '?paged=%#%', 'total' => $posts->max_num_pages, ));
When the page is loaded, it displays the pagination links but when I click on next it gives 404 error.
main page link: http://mk.local/category/mathematics/average/
when next is clicked : http://mk.local/category/mathematics/average/?paged=2
I have already tried updating permalinks
