#50677 new defect (bug)

Manually saving permalinks, possibly twice, should not be necessary

Description

This is a bug:

https://wordpress.org/support/topic/1-you-must-save-your-permalinks-structure-twice-permalinks-settings-opens-a-n/

It is a right PITA and needs to be addressed, the sooner the better.

You cannot continue to explain this away as "documented behaviour" - that is unacceptable, because it is not an acceptable way for software to behave.

I think most users and plugin/theme developers would much rather you focused on fixing this than implementing new features. Don't you?

Hi there, thanks for the ticket.

That support topic is for the All-in-One WP Migration plugin. It's up to the plugin author to automatically flush the rewrite rules after the migration so that no manual action is needed.

As far as I know, WordPress core already provides all the necessary hooks for that to happen, so this currently looks like an issue with the plugin rather than WordPress itself.
