#20174 closed defect (bug) (fixed)

populate_network() doesn't set up rewrite rules properly

Reported by: duck_'s profile duck_ Owned by: duck_'s profile duck_
Milestone: 3.4 Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 3.0
Component: Multisite Keywords: has-patch
Focuses: Cc:


The call to flush_rewrite_rules() in populate_network() doesn't actually do much because although the lines before update the permalink_structure this doesn't actually change the value cached in the WP_Rewrite property.

This means that incorrect rewrite rules are stored for the main site when setting up a network. NB: this only occurs when the permalink structure had already been set to something before installing the network.

The fix would be to use $wp_rewrite->set_permalink_structure which updates the option and re-initializes the $wp_rewrite global to use the new structure.

In [20117]:

Use WP_Rewrite::set_permalink_structure instead of plain update_option() in populate_network(). Fixes #20174.

This has the benefit of calling WP_Rewrite::init() which correctly resets the permalink_structure
property of the $wp_rewrite global so that the rewrite rules generated on the next flush are correct.
