A simple WordPress admin tool for inspecting rewrite rules. View a listing of all your rewrite rules, see which rewrite rules match a given URL (and the priorites they match in), or filter by different sources of rewrite rules. Perform a soft flush of your rewrite rules to regenerate them.
Originally developed for clients hosted at WordPress VIP, we thought it would be useful for development environments, etc. too. Feel free to fork the plugin in GitHub — pull requests are always welcome. Hit us with feedback, questions, bug reports, and feature requests in the GitHub issues.
Install the plugin from within WordPress
Visit the Plugins page from your WordPress dashboard and click “Add New” at the top of the page.
Search for “rewrite-rules-inspector” using the search bar on the right side.
Click “Install Now” to install the plugin.
After it’s installed, click “Activate” to activate the plugin on your site.
Whenever you change a custom post type, you must flush the rewrite rules. This plugin does in in a single click. Additionally it enables you to check your rewrite rules against your URLs to make sure everything is working as it should. This is one of my essential plugins.
Love the plugin but noticed today, whilst debugging a new plugin I'm writting, that the plugin still uses the depreciated functions: screen_icon() and get_screen_icon().
Both have gone depreciated since 3.8.0 so I reckon a minor update to avoid these errors from popping up in the debug mode is worth the effort 🙂
The fix - with backwards compatibility (do we need that?) - would be to change:
<?php screen_icon( 'tools' ); ?>
<?php if ( function_exists('screen_icon') ) screen_icon( 'tools' ); ?>
(!) Notice: screen_icon is deprecated since version 3.8.0 with no alternative available.
(!) Notice: get_screen_icon is deprecated since version 3.8.0 with no alternative available.
