getting a variable from a function

 11:53 am on Aug 23, 2012 (gmt 0)

Need some help here in getting a variable from a function.

Inside the functions.php file, there is a bunch of URL rewrite stuff inside an array for this Wordpress theme, and I need to create a page id based on the pages to be used in another part of the theme.

For example:

'all-blog-posts/?$' => 'index.php?special_page=blog&my_custom_page_type=all-blog-posts&paged=1',
'all-blog-posts/page/?([0-9]{1,})/?$' => 'index.php?special_page=blog&my_custom_page_type=all-blog-posts&paged='.$wp_rewrite->preg_index(1),

That is a part of the array, containing 2 array thingymigigs (whatever the official name is).

And after that array, there is this line. The array is called $new_rules
The function is called

function websiteTheme_rewrite_rules( $wp_rewrite )

$wp_rewrite->rules = $new_rules + $wp_rewrite->rules;

How do I give that all-blog-posts a page id, of the same name for example?

I read this a few times trying to wrap my head around the question. I don't understand how you can use $new_rules in that function when it has not yet been declared?

A blast from the not quite so far reaching past but still a few months ago...I cant even remember what I was asking about now, dont think even I get what I was asking either :)

Fair to say that whatever it was, I either found a solution to this or gave up and found something else.

You are correct, I was trying to go through and catch orphan threads today as I had a few minutes this afternoon. Just wanted to see if you were still tangling with this one, surrealillusions :)
