Fix WordPress pagination issue by Facebook plugin


Some time ago, several of our users complained that pagination on our themes is not working properly. Actually, we have found out that this is not theme related issue and it was caused only if Facebook WordPress plugin was installed and activated on their websites.

Since we were a bit worried about this because it is well known plugin, we have found out that many users or theme authors had the similar problem. And then we came up to solution with handy snippet which will prevent the issue.

When does pagination issue by Facebook WordPress plugin appears?

  • Only on homepage
  • If you are using “Post name” option in Permalink Settings
  • If you are using “Static” homepage option in your Reading Settings¬†which means you are using some custom page template to display your posts in a default loop
