If you have troubles since the update to WordPress 4.5 please read this post before opening a new thread.
Slug names with WordPress are very sensitive and you can *not* have any duplicates for a slug you use anywhere on the site in any form for any other slug (permalink).
So if you change it to “portfolio” and have a “portfolio” page the whole thing wont work.
As for pagination, there is no way to dynamically re-name each page that gets generated as a paged result.
The topic ‘Issues with pagination and the naming of portfolio pages’ is closed to new replies.
