#16840 closed enhancement (fixed)

add_rewrite_rule() should accept an array for the $redirect parameter

The most common usage of add_rewrite_rule() looks something like this:

add_rewrite_rule( 'some/path/([^/]+)/?$', 'index.php?some_var=$matches[1]&maybe_some_flag=1' );

That's not very pretty.

Here's what it could look like instead:

add_rewrite_rule( 'some/path/([^/]+)/?$', array(
  'some_var' => '$matches[1]', 
  'maybe_some_flag' => 1
) );

In the rare case when you want to use something other than 'index.php' in the front (i.e. an external rule), you can either fall back to the old form or just use add_external_rule().
