    I see similar threads but I couldn’t find the solution

    Permalinks are working and also pagination in archives is working, only on blog home (using masonry layout) pagination bring to a 404 page

    We are for the moment on a Windows server and we have already the code below in web.config
    <rule name=”Main Rule” stopProcessing=”true”>
    <match url=”.*” />
    <conditions logicalGrouping=”MatchAll”>
    <add input=”{REQUEST_FILENAME}” matchType=”IsFile” negate=”true” />
    <add input=”{REQUEST_FILENAME}” matchType=”IsDirectory” negate=”true” />
    <action type=”Rewrite” url=”index.php” />

    Thank you


    Hey profumopuntoit,

    Here is an article that might help you:

    Best regards,


    Please do not invite your client to add the code in the suggested link because it is incorrect in xml syntax and will certainly return 500 error and break all the website
    Better to suggest
    And that code we have already in our web.config, as me mentioned before.
    Our permalinks are working correctly.
    It is only the blog home pagination which return a 404 error, category archive pagination is working ok as we mentioned in the private data link

    Thank you Mauro


    Hi Mauro,

    Can you give us temporary admin access to your website in the private content box below, so that we can have a closer look.

    Best regards,


    Yes sure thank you


    Hi profumopuntoit,

    I wrote to my colleagues. They might have more knowledge and experience on the issue.

    Best regards,

    It should be fixed now. I have replaced permalinks from:




    Hope this helps :)

    Best regards,


    Now all posts return a 404 error!
    Please do not change our permalinks structure because we have hondreds of inbound links


    I have reset the permalinks as before



    Are you having some problem yet?

    Best regards,

    Best regards,

    thank you


    Yesterday I passed from pagination (as it was before) to “Load more” and it was working, but today it is not working again.
    It is not the first time that happen like this



    Where are you hosting the site? The admin-ajax.php file are inaccessible or block by the server.

    Request URL:
    Request Method:POST
    Status Code:403 Forbidden
    Remote Address:
    Referrer Policy:no-referrer-when-downgrade

    Please contact your hosting provider.

    Best regards,


    Server support says file permission is ok
    I updated wordpress and plugins and “Load more” issue is not there anymore (at the moment, but it comes and goes), but if I use pagination still I receive a 404 error.
    I am leaving with “Load more” but feel free to change and test
    Thank you


    Quite strange is that file type is seen as “xhr”



    It’s probably being blocked by your server after some time. You should ask them if this is the case. Is the site hosted on GoDaddy?

    Best regards,


    maybe but why pagination is not working?
    No is a Windows dedicated server on one Italian provider, Serverplan



    maybe but why pagination is not working?

    The “load more” button requires the admin-ajax.php file so it’s not going to work without the script. Please ask your hosting provider why the admin-ajax.php file is being blocked by the server. However, I’m not sure why the pagination is not working.

    Best regards,


    I have the same problem. – Working – Not Working

    I cannot say if ajax-admin is working properly.
    So anybody can help me?

    Here is a thread for you to consider

    Hi, Victoria. Sorry I just saw now your reply.

    I already tried that, but I didn’t have any results with it. The problem persists.

    Could you have any light in this dark tunnel?
