Debug Bar Rewrite Rules


Debug Bar Rewrite Rules adds information about Rewrite Rules (changed via filters) to a new panel in the Debug Bar. This plugin is an extension for Debug Bar, but it is also can work in standalone mode (as admin tools page). Note: this plugin not able to track add_rewrite_rule function calls, for a reason this function is untraceable.

Once installed, you will have access to the following information:

  • Number of existing rewrite rules
  • List of rewrite rules
  • List of available filter hooks that can affect rewrite rules.
  • List of filters that affects rewrite rules.
  • Ability to search in rules with highlighting matches.
  • Ability to test url and see what rules can be applied to it.
  • Ability to flush rules directly from debug bar panel/tools page.


  • Testing url for matches - show matched rules and actual matches.
  • Searching in rules list alongside with filtering and highlighting occurrences.
  • Interface of Rewrite Rules Inspector without Debug Bar.
