This is a tool to understand your rewrite rules (“Pretty Permalinks”). It is indispensable if you are adding or modifying rules and want to understand how they work (or why they don’t work).
It is only an analyzer, it does not change any rules for you. It parses the rules down to their components and shows the connection with the resulting query variables. It allows you to try out different URLs to see which rules will match and what the value of the different query variables will be (see screenshots).
This plugin is really useful for specific needs.
But unfortunately not maintained anymore... =/
If someone need and update version of this check this out :
- Nice and clean interface
- Remove all PHP warning / notices
- Update code structure
- Compatible with latest WP Version
- Light / Old / Dark UI
Still an incredibly useful plugin after all these years. Confirming it works on 5.4.2 with blocks enabled also! I needed it to help make sense of some complex rewrites critical to our AWS load balancer distribution, this plugin was integral in my troubleshooting. It also helped me identify ways to simplify and get rid of superfluous rules being added from all over (manual rules, Redirection, other plugins etc).
I'd like to see the owner update this so more people will know it's safe to use. Or if it's abandoned, someone take it over! This is a great developer resource that's probably being overlooked.
Confirmed to still work 8 years later in 2019! - WordPress 5.04
A super handy little tool to test the custom permalinks mess that can be created when adding custom rewrite rules.
Really handy if you are generating dynamic (virtual) pages and URLs on the fly!
