WordPress Pagination Breaks when Custom Posts are Included in the Query

I’ve been using All-in-One Event Calender for a recent client project. They would like to show both recent blog posts and ai1ec_event (custom) posts in one blog feed style page.

If I disable pagination (increase the limit) they all display fine, but as soon as I enable pagination I see 404 when I try to access page 3, sometimes I can get page 2 to work. You would think if pagination was not working it would 404 on page 2 every time.

Here is the query I was trying.

After a few days of persistent searching, I found a similar solution for custom post types. It turned out to be a WordPress 3.4 bug.

The below code needs to be added to your functions.php if you are experiencing this bug. What triggered me to believe it isn’t the plugin, was that pagination worked fine in the search result output.

Hopefully this helps a few people.

Change Default Tracks in MKV Files

Matroska (.mkv) is a container format with multiple audio and subtitle tracks. It depends on your language preferences as to what tracks are selected by default. I figured out a way to batch process whole directories to change the default tracks. MKVPropEdit is the command line tool required. You can download it as part of the MKVToolNix package.

Batch Processing

Run mmg.exe or use MKVInfo with the command line to find out your track numbers. Enter the settings you desire into a batch.bat file like the below example. Run the script and watch the magic happen. It’s best to run tests on a small directory to make sure it works properly. Nothing beats watching a computer do the work for you!
