I've got an issue, writing a correct rewrite rule.

Basically, here are the examples of the url I want :


Then the same with pagination

Then, the basic page, with 2 params, no pagination

Then, the one with 2 parameters and the pagination

More or less, i have it working with differents rules for each case, but if I put them in a row, nothing works.

Here are the rules I wrote :

    'top' );

    'top' );

    'top' );

Your first two rewrite rules do not end with $, which indicates that the URL should stop there. So myPage/mySuPage/param1/param2/page/3 would still be matched by the first pattern, because it can just ignored the /page/3 part at the end. The next rewrite rules will then never be used.

With my Rewrite analyzer plugin I was able to simplify your rewrite rules to these two: one without params and just optional paging, and one with params and optional paging. Combining these two into one did not work because the optional params woud "eat" the paging part.

Wahou, thank you very much Jan. It works perfectly now. I didn't knew about the "optional". I'm using your plugin, but i guess this was too "complex" for me. – Ludo May 30 '11 at 10:01

is there a reason paged has an 's' on the end of it? – Manny Fleurmond Aug 18 '12 at 13:18
@MannyFleurmond: I think I just took the original rules from the question, and did not check the parameters. It is possible that pageds is a parameter that is handled by his own code. – Jan Fabry Aug 18 '12 at 20:00
