I create shortcode like this

function test_func( $atts ) {   

    return $_GET['myvar'];
add_shortcode( 'test', 'test_func' );

and one page with this name myparameters

so this is the final url


if I try this works perfect


But i like have pretty url or friendly url like this


But show page not found.

I try some tutorial like this LINK but nothing happen

  • @Milo well, i investigate a litle more, if use global $wp; $view = $wp->query_vars['myvar']; to get the parameter and now work fine with add_rewrite_rule and return $view in shortcode function, I'll leave the complete example when ready. – metalbox Feb 28 '17 at 2:16

You're forming a GET request, i.e. ?var=1&var2=2 but you've sent it as a POST request, you need to send the request as a GET request so that the variables are displayed in the url bar as you expect them to be displayed.

  • the @milo Link example is the answers only we need use global $wp; to get the value like this $wp->query_vars['myvar']; – metalbox Feb 28 '17 at 2:19
  • I misunderstood your question that you wanted to know why you were getting one format vs. another format in the url bar. Good that you found a solution to your issue. – Matt G Feb 28 '17 at 2:24

This is the full example, it works very well with one parameter, just change the id to that of your page.

function bartag_func( $atts ) { 
    global $wp;
    $view = $wp->query_vars['jp_stn'];
    return $view;
add_shortcode( 'bartag', 'bartag_func' );

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

function cdl_query_vars( $query_vars ){
    $query_vars[] = 'jp_stn';
    return $query_vars;
add_filter( 'query_vars', 'cdl_query_vars' );
