#42960 new enhancement

get_page_permastruct call causes 500 error.

This was discussed in #7589. I can't seem to find the plugin that is causing this problem. Obviously somebody is making the call to get_page_permastruct before $wp_rewrite is being initialized; in my case it's on logout and trying to redirect to the logout page.

It would be a help to wrap the call to $wp_rewrite->get_page_permastruct() on line 356, with an if statement that tests for null $wp_rewrite. The rest of the code functions if that approach is taken.

if (!empty($wp_rewrite)) {

$link = $wp_rewrite->get_page_permastruct();

Before we consider changing this, we'd need to know what/where is calling the function.

You may wish to add logging into the function on your site to detect it:

if ( empty($wp_rewrite) ) {
    trigger_error( __FUNCTION__ . " Called too early by " . wp_debug_backtrace_summary(), E_USER_ERROR );

However, In general, we wouldn't change this as in this case, a PHP fatal error is the correct result. Fix the plugin/theme/other code which is calling the function too early instead.
Unless the error is being generated by a use-case which is significantly common, we're not going to change it.
