I am using $wp_rewrite->non_wp_rules

I have the following code that works:

'name/(.*)' => 'index.php?post_type=post';

Im able to use a url like http://mysite.com/custom_name/post_name

using $wp_rewrite->non_wp_rules, how can I make pages work the same way.

This is just an example:

'anothername/(.*)' => 'index.php?post_type=page'; //for all pages

'anothername/(.*)' => 'page/pagename' //for one specific page

Is there a way I can have a page look like this:


The two examples above just redirects me to:

http://mysite/page_name  //without the slug
  • is there a reason why you're using non wp rules and not adding them to the internal rewrites? – Milo Apr 5 '14 at 3:26
  • I need it to be masked, and still be able to access the url I'm reference to. – Alex Pena Apr 5 '14 at 3:54
  • are you not using pretty permalinks? that's what the internal rewrites do if you've enabled pretty permalinks. – Milo Apr 5 '14 at 3:58
  • Yes, im using pretty permalinks, i have no problem rewriting for posts, just on pages. In posts I can do so something like sitedomain/slug/postname and still access it by going to sitedomain/postname. I want to be able to do the same but with page names instead of posts. Being able to access both urls, the one with base-slug and without. – Alex Pena Apr 5 '14 at 4:07

I've not tried external rules, but you can achieve that with an internal rewrite and pagename:

function wpd_page_rewrite(){
add_action( 'init', 'wpd_page_rewrite' );

For parent/child pages you have to set pagename to the parent/child path, page/pagename, or you can also use page_id and use the page's ID.

EDIT - note that you have to flush rewrite rules after adding new ones. a quick way to do this during testing is to visit the permalinks settings page.

  • It didn't work for the external rules, but this answer worked for what I was trying to do. So I'll stick with this one. Thanks! – Alex Pena Apr 5 '14 at 4:54
