#20905 closed enhancement (fixed)

Allow rewrite endpoints to specify a different query variable name

Reported by: johnbillion Owned by: johnbillion
Milestone: 3.9 Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version:
Component: Rewrite Rules Keywords: needs-codex

Using add_rewrite_endpoint() we can add an endpoint such as /foo/bar/ which maps to foo=bar. I'd like to be able to map an endpoint to a query variable of a different name. Currently the query variable name always matches the endpoint name.

Example: I'd like to use /p/{number} as a nice short endpoint for some custom functionality, but the 'p' query variable is used by core. I'd like to be able to map /p/3/ to my_query_var=3.
