query string to pretty permalink

  • I’m accessing a Mysql second database inside WordPress and passing values (via a drop down form) with GET within my index.php page to grab fields from this second database. I need to be able to have these queries turn into pretty permalinks.

    I’ve been able to use the WP_Rewrite api to convert pretty permalinks into a query values:


    However I now need to turn the queries into pretty permalinks. In other words I never want the visitors to see the queries in the URL.

    My code for the WP_Rewrite is:

    	function wptuts_add_rewrite_rules() {
    	add_action( 'init', 'wptuts_add_rewrite_rules' );
    		function wptuts_register_rewrite_tag() {
    		add_rewrite_tag( '%tid%', '^([0-9]+)$');
    	add_action( 'init', 'wptuts_register_rewrite_tag');
    		function wp_tuts_filter_post_link( $permalink, $post ) {
    		// Check if the %eventdate% tag is present in the url:
    		if ( false === strpos( $permalink, '%tid%' ) ){
    				return $permalink;
    			$id = get_query_var('tid');	
    			 $permalink = str_replace( '%tid%', $id , $permalink ); 
    			  return $permalink;
    	add_filter( 'post_link', 'wp_tuts_filter_post_link');
    	function wptuts2_register_rewrite_tag() {
    		add_rewrite_tag( '%type%', '([^/]+)');
    	add_action( 'init', 'wptuts2_register_rewrite_tag');
    		function wp_tuts2_filter_post_link( $permalink, $post ) {
    		// Check if the %eventdate% tag is present in the url:
    		if ( false === strpos( $permalink, '%type%' ) ){
    				return $permalink;
    			$type = get_query_var('type');	
    			 $permalink = str_replace( '%type%', $type , $permalink ); 
    			  return $permalink;
    	add_filter( 'post_link', 'wp_tuts2_filter_post_link');
