WordPress: Pagination on Custom Post Archives

Custom post types are a great feature that WordPress introduced in version 3.0. We use them on a regular basis for many clients sites and it gives us even more control and flexibility over websites that we create for clients.

Something that doesn’t work as you would expect is the pagination of custom post types on archive pages. A few months back we were banging our heads against the wall trying to get pagination to work. After some searching on the forums, we found the solution.

A neat little function that you add to your website’s functions.php file:

function my_disable_redirect_canonical( $redirect_url ) {
    if ( is_singular( 'custom-post-type' ) )
    $redirect_url = false;
    return $redirect_url;

Just replace ‘custom-post-type’ with the name of your custom post type.
