Trying to find the location of a rewrite of the URL query
After my original question was deleted, I’ll try this another way.
Here’s the problem.
If I update my WordPress from 5.4 to 5.5, some pages are missing some information. I have a folder-like structure of pages (not posts) with parents and children. The site is about appartments and houses. So I have an URL like:
These are the pages in order of their parents:
- WP_ROOT (like example.com)
- objects (is a page, parent of rent)
- rent (is a page, parent of object_details)
- object_details (is a page)
- 12345 is not a page! It’s just an ID (int) by which I can pull the corresponding data of the house or flat or whatever into the template.
So, in the template of
object_details, I read the object_id like this:
<?php $id = str_replace( array("/objects/rent/object_details/", "/"), "", $_SERVER["SCRIPT_URI"] ); ?>
So far so good. In WP 5.4 this works like a charm. In WP 5.5 it doesn’t! The object_id gets erased, so that $id in the script above becomes NULL, or "". And in the browser I find myself in
WP_ROOT/objects/rent/object_details/, so I’m redirected via 301.
Since I already got deleted once, because this `is obviously not a problem with WP but a custom tweak,´ so I’ll ask it the other way around:
How would I go about accomplishing such a thing in WP?
Maybe that way I can find out, what happened here…
