There are a few things you can do to prevent rewrite rules in your .htaccess file from being removed by WordPress:
- Use a plugin: There are several plugins available that can help you manage your .htaccess file and prevent WordPress from overwriting it. Some popular options include WP Htaccess Control, HT Access Editor, and Easy Htaccess.
- Disable the WordPress rewrite rules: You can disable the WordPress rewrite rules by adding the following code to your wp-config.php file:
- Use a custom .htaccess file: You can create a custom .htaccess file and upload it to your server. Make sure that the custom file is not located in the root folder of your WordPress installation and it should be protected from any automatic updates or modifications.
- Use a different file name: You can change the name of your .htaccess file to something else, like .htaccess_custom and then, in the settings of your server you can configure it to use that file as the main configuration file.
- Make sure that the rewrite rules you added are not conflicting with the rules added by WordPress, this could be causing the removal of your custom rules.
