[Plugin: Advanced Permalinks] 2.8 - Plugin Now Causes Infinite Redirect Loop (2 posts)

    Hey there folks. So, I was having an issue since upgrading to 2.8 whereby I was getting an infinite redirect loop upon previewing any posts. I determined that this plugin, though it used to be fine, is now causing that problem. When deactivated, the redirect loop goes away and I can preview everything just fine. Wondering if anyone knows of another solution whereby you can create a separate permalink for posts at a certain time frame. EG> I am using it currently as I wanted to create new permalinks structures for my new posts, without loosing those that were already published with a different permalink. Short of this plugin, Im not sure how to create such functionality, so at the moment, I still need the plugin but the redirect loop is causing issues in creating and then previewing posts before publishing. Any thoughts?

    For some reason, when I have this plugin along with redirection plugins activated, and only since upgrading to 2.8, I am unable to preview posts without an infinite redirect error. IE, if I am in a post draft and it is saved as a draft - for example siteDOTcom/this-is-great/11948/, wordpress lets me preview the draft at siteDOTcom/?p=11948 or /?p=POSTID. When trying to go to this URL, I get an infinite redirect loop that immediately goes away if I deactivate advanced permalinks. Additionally, so that you know, I have tried deactivating all plugins one at a time and this was absolutely the one causing the infinite redirect loop as it was the only one that solved the issue upon deactivation.

    I have advanced permalinks set up to have newer posts (after a certain post ID) set up as the current permalink, which is /postname/postid/. Older posts are set up with permalink of /postname/, which is my older permalink choice

    Please let me know if there is more background that I can provide. Thanks again in advance.
