wp_resolve_numeric_slug_conflicts( array $query_vars = array() )

Resolve numeric slugs that collide with date permalinks.


Description Description

Permalinks of posts with numeric slugs can sometimes look to WP_Query::parse_query() like a date archive, as when your permalink structure is /%year%/%postname%/ and a post with post_name ’05’ has the URL /2015/05/.

This function detects conflicts of this type and resolves them in favor of the post permalink.

Note that, since 4.3.0, wp_unique_post_slug() prevents the creation of post slugs that would result in a date archive conflict. The resolution performed in this function is primarily for legacy content, as well as cases when the admin has changed the site’s permalink structure in a way that introduces URL conflicts.


Parameters Parameters

$query_vars

(array) (Optional) Query variables for setting up the loop, as determined in WP::parse_request().

Default value: array()
