Everything's easy when you know how. I had found that clicking links at the end of my blog, to get to page 2 or 3, was landing users with an error 404, "page not found". This was annoying, to say the least. I did a lot of trawling through the net, where this error is in abundance.
I didn't find the answer there, though it may be there.
The answer is very simple; to rename one's blog. Calling the blog "blog", sends the site in all sorts of loops, as I have a category called blog, a page called blog and the blog is called blog. Now, my blog is called myblog, and everything works as it should.
Easy. When you know how.
