Support » Fixing WordPress » How to add custom permalink structures?

  • Up until WordPress 3, we have been running some code in one of our plugins which changes how WordPress reads tag URL’s. Instead of the standard /tags/oranges/ type structure, we’ve been using something along the lines of /s/37/tags/oranges/ which allowed us to split the site into multiple sections. (for example, the above might show different posts than say /s/25/tags/oranges/)

    The code we were using seemed to be working fine up until WordPress 3.0. I have included it below. It is an adapted form of the example found near the bottom of this page of Ryan Boren’s Feed Director plugin:

    The code we’ve been using:

    add_action('generate_rewrite_rules', 'sectioncats_add_rewrite_rules');
    function sectioncats_add_rewrite_rules( $wp_rewrite )
    	$new_rules = array(
    		'[Ss]/([0-9]+)/tags/([^/]+)/?$' => 'index.php?' .
    			'tag=' . $wp_rewrite->preg_index(2) .
    			'&section_id=' . $wp_rewrite->preg_index(1),
    		'[Ss]/([0-9]+)/tags/([^/]+)/page/?([0-9]{1,})/?$' => 'index.php?' .
    			'tag=' . $wp_rewrite->preg_index(2) .
    			'&paged=' . $wp_rewrite->preg_index(3) .
    			'&section_id=' . $wp_rewrite->preg_index(1),
    	$wp_rewrite->rules = $new_rules + $wp_rewrite->rules;

    As of WordPress 3, this no longer works. Well… it sorta works in that it keeps the proper section but redirects the browser to /tags/oranges/ (ie back to the default WP structure)

    So, my question is, What’s the *right* way to do this? I’ve tried switching to use simple add_rewrite_rule commands, but those don’t yield any better results.

    Thanks in advance for any help.
