I want a create a simple HTML page (not Wordpress Page) programmatically by using the permalink structure of another already existing post.

E.g. Already existing post is www.example.com/this-is-example-post

I want to create 3 more pages viz.


These URLs need not be real pages. I just need three different pages to store different Facebook meta. I'm building a plugin. Please guide. How can I achieve it?

Am I thinking twisted? I'm going crazy thinking about it. :( Please help.


After working on suggestions from Rahil, here's where I'm now

add_action( 'init', 'xx_add_endpoint' );

function xx_add_endpoint()
    add_rewrite_endpoint( 'index', EP_PERMALINK );

add_action( 'template_redirect', 'xx_render_endpoint' );

function xx_render_endpoint()
    if ( ! is_singular() or ! get_query_var( 'index' ) )

    // Do somthing here

add_filter( 'request', 'xx_set_endpoint_var' );

function xx_set_endpoint_var( $vars )
    isset( $vars['index'] ) and $vars['index'] = true;
    return $vars;


But I'm trying to understand how I can pass variables to this request e.g. www.example.com/this-is-example-post/index/20/1, www.example.com/this-is-example-post/index/20/2, www.example.com/this-is-example-post/index/20/3 and so on.

p.s. I intend to pass two values viz. /index/a/b where a,b are the two values to be sent and handled under xx_render_endpoint function.

Please guide.
