#26277 closed defect (bug) (invalid)

Codex entry on "register post type" has incorrect information

The Codex entry on the "register_post_type" function contains inaccurate information about the "rewrite" argument.
In the entry, the fields are named 'feeds' and 'pages', whereas the correct parameters to the function "add_permastruct" that gets called eventually are 'feed' and 'paged'.

Are you talking about the rewrite section on this Codex entry http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/register_post_type? If so, you can edit the page (as with any Codex page) at its edit link which, for this page, can be found here.

Oh, I didn't know it was user-editable. Fixed it. Thanks!

  • Keywords needs-codex added

That article documents the parameters for register_post_type(), not for add_permastruct().

For register_post_type(), the parameters were correct.

As documented in the inline docs, it's feeds and pages there, not feed and paged:

In line 1316, feeds is mapped to feed (see [24830] for #23302):

Not sure why pages is not mapped, but it appears to be handled above. Probably worth investigating further.

I've reverted the Codex change since it's incorrect.

Oops. I was looking at 3.6.1, and there is no such mapping there. But I see it is fixed now. Thanks!

I tested this with 3.7.1, and here's what I got:
If register_post_type for a custom post type named "deposits" with 'pages'=>false, the following two rules are created (among others):



However, if I call it with 'paged'=>false, the first rule is not created.

Is this the correct behaviour?
