Audio Player custom post type conflict resulting in 404

Recommended Posts


Hi Aleksander,


While troubleshooting a custom post type registration issue that was resulting in 404's, we discovered that audio-player flushes rewrite rules in the post_type_setup function which is called by section_persistent. Our custom post type registration calls flush_rewrite_rules() only on plugin activation after it is registered and it appears that the call by audio-player (on every page load?) resets it resulting in 404's on our new post type.



 Here is how our post type is registered and activated ($args not included for sake of brevity)

function create_wpappdev_cpt() {
  $args = //args are added here, labels, description, rewrite, etc;

  register_post_type( 'wpappdev_cpt', $args )

add_action( 'init', 'create_wpappdev_cpt' );

function activate_wpappdev_cpt() { // register custom post type create_wpappdev_cpt(); // flush rewrite rules flush_rewrite_rules( false ); }
register_activation_hook( __FILE__, 'activate_wpappdev_cpt' );



With this setup, if audio-player is activated, our custom post results in a 404. After audio-player is disabled, and after a visit to the permalinks page to flush rewrites, our custom post type works fine.



I see the audio-player custom post type is registered with the PageLinesPostType class, which I am not familiar with. Is it possible to flush_rewrite_rules on activation and deactivation only?

Hi Justin,

In the latest version I have removed the flush_rewrite_rules() as I discovered that it actually wasnt needed.

I am not able to push any updates through the store at the moment, but I have setup my own store at http://shop.ahansson.com which features auto updates.

      Before buying Audio Player, I would like to know if it can play audio streaming.
      For exemple :

      Installed and updated the plugin and could barely use wordpress.  I did a scan and the speed was a D, I deactivated it and deleted it and now performance is better and backend loads better.  Uninstalled all other plugins til I got to that and it is what was slowing site down.  Just wanted to let you know.

      The videobackground is really usefull. But would it be possible to have it contained in a section? Like on this site. http://www.izettle.com/se/kassaregister

      Hi Alex!
      So the player still is out of order. And the one you have pushed is empty so there is no way to install the latest version. The latest in PageLine account is 100.4
