I use Custom Post Types. I try this:

functions.php

add_action( 'admin_init', 'flush_rewrite_rules' );

Now I’d like to remove this again. I try this:

remove_action( 'admin_init', 'flush_rewrite_rules' );

I’m not sure if it works right. How can I test if the rewrite rules really not flushed anymore?

  • Can´t test it really, I just try this, too because I get on all my pages 404 errors. I have issues with permalinks and the .htaccess file and I don´t know exactly whats the main bug is. You can see also my other question iyou like:link

To see if the option 'rewrite_rules' was reset – that’s what flush_rewrite_rules() does internally – hook into the option actions and log what happens.

The following small plugin does that. It will tell you what code flushed the rewrite rules and how the rules looked before and after the flush. If no flush happened it just says nothing logged. :)

<?php
/* Plugin Name: Debug rewrite rule flushing */

add_action( 'plugins_loaded', 'wpse_67368_debug_rewrite_flushes' );

function wpse_67368_debug_rewrite_flushes()
{
    static $log = array ();

    if ( 'plugins_loaded' === current_filter() )
    {
        $hooks = array (
            'added_option',
            'updated_option',
            'deleted_option',
            'shutdown'
        );
        foreach ( $hooks as $hook )
        {
            add_action( $hook, __FUNCTION__, 10, 3 );
        }

        return;
    }

    if ( 'shutdown' === current_filter() )
    {
        empty ( $log ) and $log = 'nothing logged';
        printf( '<pre>%s</pre>', var_export( $log, TRUE ) );
        return;
    }

    $args = func_get_args();
    $option = array_shift( $args );

    if ( 'rewrite_rules' === $option )
    {
        $log[] = array (
            'filter'    => current_filter(),
            'option'    => $option,
            'args'      => $args,
            'backtrace' => debug_backtrace()
        );
    }
}
