Custom Content Type Manager
[resolved] .htaccess file corruption (4 posts)

    On a recent wordpress site I was doing some enhancements and added the custom content type manager plugin for a specific piece of functionality. I love this plugin! Anyway, since adding the plugin, a very odd thing has happened on the site for the first time, and only happens very sporatically. (like once a week). The .htaccess file gets completely corrupted, a jumbled mess. This error seems completely impossible to recreate... or at least I haven't figured out how to recreate it. I realize it could be any number fo factors and may have nothing to do with the plugin, but I am wondering if this plugin interacts with the .htaccess file in any way?

    Hmm... no, there's nothing in the plugin that intentionally messes with the .htaccess file. I think it's bad form that WordPress does that at all -- I'm not sure which processes cause WP to write that file, but I know that WP does try to automate the process.

    There is a global setting for the CCTM (Custom Content types --> Global Settings) for "Flush Permalink Rules"... that's the only thing I could think could be related. I don't think that forces a rewrite of the .htaccess file though, since the rules are flushed on every request, not once a week.

    That is what I thought as well. I've set the .htaccess file to read only and I sure hope that takes care of it. But, anyway, kudos on the plugin! Very powerful/flexible stuff.
