Support » Plugins » Hacks » Custom permalinks disappear when another plugin activates

  • Hi,

    I’m trying to rewrite author permalinks to something else like “member”

    this does the trick:
    $wp_rewrite->author_base = 'atletes';
    $wp_rewrite->flush_rules();

    I’m calling this code upon plugin activation: register_activation_hook

    But when another plugin,doesn’t matter which one activates, this gets broken, and I have to deactivate and activate plugin again to change permalink again

    is this normal?

  • Does this happen when you explicitly call wp_rewrite globally?

    //Ensure the $wp_rewrite global is loaded
    global $wp_rewrite;
    // rewrite
    $wp_rewrite->author_base = 'atletes';
    //regenerate the cache as a method of the $wp_rewrite object
    $wp_rewrite->flush_rules();

    yep.
