Misc useful things

I’ll gather together some potentially useful things here as I think of them…

Change post type defaults

Ok, so say you want to do something different than has been declared with the default CultureObject post type. So for example – what if you have an archive or a library and want to display something other than an “object” in the URL?

In that case you’ll want to use the register_post_type_args hook to change the default CultureObject behaviour.

Here’s an example where we change the slug to ‘archive’ (so instead of yoursiteroot.com/object/some-object-id, your record would be at yoursiteroot.com/archive/some-object-id):

// Function to amend CultureObject permalink
function thirty8_gp_cultureobject_permalink( $args, $post_type ) 

	// If not objects CPT, bail.
	if ( 'object' !== $post_type ) 
		return $args;

	// Add additional CPT options.
	$object_args = array(
		//'has_archive' => true,
		//'supports'    => array( 'title', 'editor', 'author', 'thumbnail', 'excerpt', 'custom-fields', 'page-attributes' ),
		'rewrite' => array('slug' => 'archive'),

	// Merge args together.
	return array_merge( $args, $object_args );
add_filter( 'register_post_type_args', 'thirty8_gp_cultureobject_permalink', 10, 2 );
