[resolved] redirect to other "view" of same post (3 posts)

    Suppose a single post (single.php) has an URL example.com/post-x/
    On this page there is a link which is example.com/post-x/print/
    In other words, the same URL but with an added /print/ slug.
    When I click on that link I want to show the same post, but with a different layout (coupon).

    I suppose I need to use template_redirect so what I have so far is this:

    add_action("template_redirect",  "couponRedirect");
    function couponRedirect() {
    	global $wp_query;
    	if ('print' == $wp_query->query_vars['name']) {
          if ($wp_query->is_404) {
             $wp_query->is_404 = false;
          header("HTTP/1.1 200 OK");
          include (TEMPLATEPATH . '/coupon.php');

    But this does not display anything (empty page). Now I am guessing I need to include a query? Can someone point me in the right direction as to how to do this?

    You might look into the Rewrite API. You basically want to send the query variables of any URL with '/print' to your coupon.php template. Your template then uses these variables to properly reconstruct the original post in a manner suitable for your needs.

    Thanks, I was unaware of this possibility.
