3.2.1 Permalinks Rule Missing For page/2?cat=1

Reported by: soliver's profile soliver Owned by:
Milestone: Priority: normal
Severity: major Version: 3.2.1
Component: Canonical Keywords: 2nd-opinion
Focuses: Cc:



after upgrading to 3.2.1 the index.php does not rewrite ?cat=1 when added to the pagination. e.g.

Info: Custom Permalink Structore (Most Common): /%postname%.html

Normally this ( would resolve to - but it no longer does and is directly accessible.

This will cause duplicate content errors, if you do not use canonical links and is therefore a major bug and can lead to various Google problems.

Yes, I have temporarily disabled all plugins and checked this on multiple servers with the same result, but I need a 2nd opinion on this - can someone verify the problem for me?

Thank you,

I have checked various other blogs running 3.2.1 and they all have the same problem,
/page/2?cat=1 is directly accessible, generating duplicate content issues on a large scale.

This was not possible in previous Wordpress version, therefore I would consider it as a bug.
