#13530 closed enhancement (duplicate)

Should switch_to_blog() call $wp_rewrite->init(); ?

This is more of a question than a report, because I am still not quite sure what the intended outcome or procedure is when using switch_to_blog().

My current usage is, get_blog_list()
Loop through the list calling switch_to_blog(), and then restore_current_blog() for each iteration.

This is the way I used to do things with MU, now I am getting weird outcomes having to do with permalink structures for post taxonomies.

These all seem to disappear when I call $wp_rewrite->init() along with the previous calls. So I was wondering what am I doing wrong? Or should this call be included in switch_to_blog() ?

Re-initializing rewrite after switch_to_blog() has always been rather undefined. To do it properly would require unloading and reloading all plugins.

Initializing rewrite in switch_to_blog() probably wouldn't hurt though.

Could you document the weird outcomes so we can see if there are underlying causes we need to address beyond doing an init().

init() is pretty expensive so it probably won't be added to switch_to_blog(). Are you using custom posts or taxonomies? If so, are they being defined for all blogs (the entire site) or only certain blogs.
