#31957 new defect (bug)

query fails, when post is queried under specific name

Reported by: selnomeria Owned by:

Severity: normal Version: 4.1.1
Component: Query Keywords:
Focuses: Cc:


i.e., i have custom post type, named "CARS",
and when i have standard category, named "CARS"..

when i publish standard post under "cars" category:

worpdress thinks, that it is under custom-post types, and 404 page is displayed..

to fix that, i have made this function:

//example URL:    yoursite.com/cars/subcat/TORNADOO
add_action( 'pre_get_posts', 'myf' ); function myf( $query ) {
    if ( $query->is_main_query() ) {			
	//when the PERMALINK was not found, then 404 maybe triggered.. But wait! maybe it is a standard post, under the standard category(which's name is i.e. "cars")
	if (!url_to_postid(currentURL__MLSS)){
			$k=array_filter($link_array);	//remove empty values
			$k=array_values($k);			//reset hierarchy
			$all_nmb = count($k);
		//if post exists with the found slug("TORNADOO"), lets check, if their parents are categories
		$post=get_page_by_path(basename('TORNADOO'), OBJECT, 'post');
		if ($post){
			for($i=0; $i<$all_nmb-1; $i++){
				$cat = get_term_by('slug', $k[$i], 'category'); 
				if(!(in_category($cat->term_id,$post->ID) || post_is_in_descendant_category(array($cat->term_id),$post->ID))){
					$failed=true; break;
			if (!$failed){
				//new query
				$query->parse_query(   array('post_type' =>'post')  ) ;	
				$query->is_home = false;
				$query->is_single = true;
				$query->is_singular = true;
				$query->is_page = false;
				$query->queried_object_id = $post->ID; 
				$query->set( 'page_id', $post->ID );
	//if page exists with the that link, then query will be made correctly..
	//$page=get_page_by_path(...., ..., 'page');

if ( ! function_exists( 'post_is_in_descendant_category' ) ) { function post_is_in_descendant_category( $cats, $_post = null ) {
		foreach ( (array) $cats as $cat ) {	$descendants = get_term_children( (int) $cat, 'category' );
			if ( $descendants && in_category( $descendants, $_post ) ) {return true;}				
		}return false;

Also, if i access:

then it should not try to find, if a standard category exists under that slug (instead of showing 404, as it think that it's custom post type page)

sorry, same problem for 'pages' ,not only posts.. so, the same custom query is needed---

//PAGE exists... with the found slug("TORNADOO"), lets check if it's a really page..
$page=get_page_by_path('cars/subcat/TORNADOO', OBJECT, 'page');
if ($page){
	//new query
	$query->parse_query(   array('post_type' =>'page')  ) ;	
	$query->is_home = false;
	$query->is_single = false;
	$query->is_singular = true;
	$query->is_page = true;
	$query->queried_object_id = $page->ID; 
	$query->set( 'page_id', $page->ID );
