I'm using the Monkeyman Rewrite Analyzer plugin (http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/monkeyman-rewrite-analyzer/) I want to write a rule that will be take a URL (that is specified in the user's accnt on a video encoding service as a callback URL) and then run the .php at the end of the callback URL.

In short, the video encoding service will send a callback once a file has been encoded. I need to catch that notification and then act on it.

btw, I also looked at WP Router (https://github.com/jbrinley/WP-Router) but it feels like overkill to me. I've used the Monkeyman plugin before with much success. I just can't seem to zero in on this particular add_rewrite_rule so I can process the callback request.

  • @chrisguitarguy - I'd LOVE to, but that's kinda the point. I can't find a working example. There's one similar question in the WP.org forums with no answer and it's closed. Certainly WP can field/catch a callback to a particular (read: specified) URL/myfile/php, correct? The question I'm asking is...how? :) Thx. Sep 27, 2012 at 17:24
