So, with my standard wp setup, using pretty urls, my paginated links for ‘more’ items on the home and archive pages have the urls like /page/1/ , /page/2/, /page/3/…
If I use GenerateBlocks pagination, they are like /?query-7edb629a-page=2, /?query-7edb629a-page=3…
I hate that. Both from a pretty standpoint, but also that Google has all of my /page/2/ type links indexed and crawls them regularly and I’m breaking them by using GenerateBlocks.
I contacted GenerateBlocks support, they said the solution is to not use GenerateBlocks. But I have reason to use GenerateBlocks, which is why I got it.
It seems like there should be a solution to this. I would expect it would be a pretty big issue for many sites.
I hate to make my site any more complex than it is, but maybe something in htaccess that would display the /?query-7edb629a-page=2 page when the entered url is /page/2/ ?
Then I would also need to do something so that the incrementing anchor link in GenerateBlocks is formatted as /page/2/
Thoughts on this and coding examples would be appreciated!
