I have spent a whole day trying to resolve in issue. I'm trying to retrieve a custom varaible which is added by my plugin. I have tried testing the regex using the rewrite analyzer, which recognizes the regex is correct but when I use it I do not get the expected result


should return a var of property_id = 2, but this is nowhere to be found in var_dump($wp_query->query_vars);

Any Ideas?

public function __construct()
            // register actions
          add_action('admin_init', array(&$this, 'admin_init'));
        } // END public function __construct
public function admin_init()
$pholderid = 4;
add_rewrite_tag('%property_id%', '([^&]+)');
          add_rewrite_tag('%psearchparam%', '([^&]+)');
          $pholderid = get_option( 'vvpp_post_id' );            
          if (isset($pholderid)){
          //use placeholder to identify property details as post
          //might be needed


You're adding the rewrite tag on admin_init, so it doesn't exist on front end requests. Add your rewrite stuff on init instead.
