#20902 new defect (bug)

redirect_canonical() on using permalink: Not all $_GET being redirected

Severity: normal Version: 3.4

Using permalink, I suppose that all query_var entered manually on URL or using $_GET will be redirected to proper permalink. Apparently not all being redirected at all. AFAIC:

  1. /?post_format=image : should be redirected to /type/image/
  2. /?pagename=blog : should be redirected to /blog/
  3. /?author_name=admin : should be redirected to /author/admin/

Unfortunately, they are not.

It can be done by filtering redirect_canonical() but it will be better if it's being done by default as we can see that /?category_name=cat will be redirected to /category/cat/

20920.diff fixes all three scenarios, mainly by adding logic to canonical.php. As for the post format canonical redirects, the current tax query redirects seems to handle tags, categories and custom taxonomy well, but the extra post_type query argument added in _post_format_request prevented it from doing so.

I feel weird that categories, tags and custom post types won't append the post_type argument, even if added to other object types with register_taxonomy_for_object_type, so I don't understand the reason why it's there for post formats, since post formats is a taxonomy, just like everything else, except that it has a custom admin interface. Would like feedback on this from Andrew and/or Mark, see [17249].

@davejesch, @jdangl, and I tested this at the ocwp meetup on 4.1-alpha-30299 and the patch didn't apply. We updated the patch and applied it. As @kovshenin said, it fixes all three scenarios.

The patch still looks like it's the right direction to go in, although we should also add some unit tests for these new redirections, covering both has-posts and no-posts for authors.
