relationship – impossible to get permalink

  • Hello Guys,

    thanks for reading me.

    i’m getting troubles on my site.

    i use relationship fields to link cities to custom posts.

    so i wish to display the city & a link to the city page on different areas.

    if use code related to docs, something really easy :

    $event_cities = get_field('contact_city',$post->ID);
    foreach($event_cities as $event_city) { 
    	echo '<a href="'. get_permalink( $event_city->ID ) .'">'. get_the_title( $event_city->ID ) .'</a>'; 

    but for a reason that i can not identify :

    – title is OK
    – permalink is wrong.

    on a single.php page, the permalink display the link of the loaded page.
    on a page like homepage where i link future events & want to display the event city with a link to it, it display link of the event.

    i’m getting totaly crazy ! I readed an make hundred of tests !

    Any help will be apreciate !

  • Hello,

    after many investigation, i found what is making this trouble !

    its a custom code i used to add a .html extension to all my pages & customs posts.

    but i can not figure what in this code is creating this trouble :s

    my function

    	function custom_post_permalink ($post_link) {
    		global $post;
    		if($post) {
    			$type = get_post_type($post->ID);
    			$post_type_data = get_post_type_object( $type );
    			$post_type_slug = $post_type_data->rewrite['slug'];
    			$post_type_slug_translated = apply_filters( 'wpml_get_translated_slug', $post_type_slug, $type);
    			$translated_home_url = apply_filters( 'wpml_home_url', home_url());
    			$be_current_lang = apply_filters( 'wpml_current_language', NULL );
    				return $translated_home_url . $post_type_slug_translated . '/' . $post->post_name . '.html';
    			} else {	
    			return $translated_home_url .'/'. $post_type_slug_translated . '/' . $post->post_name . '.html';
    	add_filter('post_type_link', 'custom_post_permalink');

    Thanks in advance for your help

  • In order for this to work with your function you are going to need to use setup_postdata(). See the basic loop section of the documentation

  • Hello,

    i already use setup_postdata()

    my complete function :

    			global $wpdb,$post;
    			$results = $wpdb->get_results( "SELECT * FROM wp_posts, <code>wp_mec_dates</code> AS mecd, wp_icl_translations WHERE wp_posts.ID = mecd.post_id and post_status='publish' AND wp_icl_translations.language_code='$lang' AND dstart>'$startday' and  wp_posts.ID = wp_icl_translations.element_id ORDER BY dstart LIMIT 0,5" );
    			if (count($results)> 0){	
    				echo '<h3 class="widget-title"><span><i class="far fa-calendar-alt"></i> Les prochains événements</span></h3>';
    				foreach ($results as $post) {
    					$event_permalink = get_the_permalink();
    					$event_date = $post->dstart; 
    					$new_event_date = date("d/m", strtotime($event_date));
    					$event_edate = $post->dend;
    					$new_event_edate = date("d/m", strtotime($event_edate));
    					$event_title = get_the_title();
    					$image_url = get_the_post_thumbnail_url('','liste-etablissements');
    					$event_cities = get_field('contact_city');
    					echo '<div class="events-sidebar"><div class="events-img">'."\n";
    					echo '	  <a href="'. $event_permalink .'"><img src="'. $image_url .'" alt="" class="image"></a>'."\n";
    					echo '	</div>'."\n";
    					echo '	<div class="events-detail">'."\n";
    					echo '		<h3 class="presta-title"> <a title="" href="'.$event_permalink.'">'. substr($event_title,0,55) .'</a></h3>'."\n";
    					echo '		<div class="presta-decouvrir">'; if($new_event_edate != $new_event_date) { echo 'Du'; } else { echo 'Le'; } echo ' <b>' .$new_event_date; if($new_event_edate != $new_event_date) { echo '</b> au <b>'. $new_event_edate; }  echo '</b><br />';
    					if($event_cities) { $cities = 0; $max_cities = 1; foreach($event_cities as $event_city) { $cities++; if($cities > $max_cities) { break; } echo 'à <a href="'. get_permalink( $event_city->ID ) .'" title="">'. get_the_title( $event_city->ID ) .'</a>'; } } 
    					echo '		</div>'."\n";
    					echo '	</div></div><div style="clear:both;"></div>'."\n";					
    					//echo $new_event_date . ' - <a href="'.$event_permalink.'" title="'.$event_title.'">' . substr($event_title,0,38) .'</a><br />';

    every data works, exept the relationship permalink.
    if i deactivate my custom function in previous post, everything works well. But i don’t see in my function what is creating this trouble.

  • Also, i repeat, the get_the_title() works good.
    with exactly the same settings. ( settings is relationship ID )
    so this confirm the post data are good.

    if i add this code before header, no whories at all. Its only when this hook take action on it.

  • I would do this

    // before getting link
    remove_filter('post_type_link', 'custom_post_permalink');
    // get the link
    // after getting the link
    add_filter('post_type_link', 'custom_post_permalink');
  • Hello, thanks for your reply !

    your answear seems good but not totaly fix the issue (not tested), because i would be oblige to use it anytime i wish to display those links.

    Just got an answear on Stackexchange, my problem was that i was defining global $post in my function.

    if you want more explaination, here is the thread

  • Now I understand your custom query is also in a function, that wasn’t clear enough for me. Glad you got a solution.

  • english is not my 1st language 😀 sorry 😛

    indeed, thanks for taking time to look at this issue.
