Custom Permalinks
editing parent category breaks custom permalinks for child categories (1 post)

    If you have a category A with children X,Y,Z, all of which have custom permalinks defined, then edit A, the custom permalinks break for X,Y,and Z and result in 404 errors. When you go to edit X,Y, or Z, the custom permalink shows up, and re-saving the category (without modifications), fixes the 404 error. I have modified the custom_permalinks_save_term function to prevent this. I don't think it is a great fix, but it works for now. Here is my new custom_permalinks_save_term function:

    function custom_permalinks_save_term($term, $permalink) {
      $orig_table = get_option('custom_permalink_table');
      $new_table = array();
      if ( $permalink )
        $new_table[$permalink] = array(
          'id' => $term->term_id,
          'kind' => ($term->taxonomy == 'category' ? 'category' : 'tag'),
          'slug' => $term->slug);
      foreach ($orig_table as $permalink => $info) {
        if ( $permalink )
          $new_table[$permalink] = array(
            'id' => $info['id'],
            'kind' => $info['kind'],
            'slug' => $info['slug']);
        update_option('custom_permalink_table', $new_table);
