    Hi. I want the pagination pages to link to the root category.

    For example, I want the /shop/page/2/ page to have the canonical /shop/.

    Is there any way to do that?

  • Hello,

    Thank you for contacting Rank Math for help setting the main category page as canonical for paginated category listings.

    To set the canonical pagination page, please add the following function to your (child) theme functions.php file:

    
    add_filter( 'rank_math/frontend/canonical', function( $canonical ) {
    	if ( is_paged() ) {
    			$link = $_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'];
    			$arr = explode('/p/', $link,);
    			$canonical = home_url($arr[0]. '/');
    		}
    		return $canonical;
    });
    

    Hope that helps. Please let us know if you have questions.

    Unfortunately, this code does not work.

    It just adds an extra / :

    With code:
    URL /shop/page/2/.
    Canonical /shop/page/2//.

    What’s needed is:
    URL /shop/page/2/.
    Canonical /shop/

    Hello,

    Please replace the previous code with the below one and see if it helps:

    add_filter( 'rank_math/frontend/canonical', function( $canonical ) {
    	if ( is_paged() ) {
    		$link = 'https://' . $_SERVER['HTTP_HOST'] . $_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'];
    		$arr = explode('/page/', $link);
    		$canonical = $arr[0] . '/';
    	}
    	return $canonical;
    });

    Let us know how that goes.

    Thank you.

    Yes, this code works correctly. Thank you very much!
