I was scratching my head on how to get the variable from WordPress rewrite rules. In one of Stackoverflow post, it was mentioned we could use $_GET and in some posts proposed to use get_query_var() but when I tried both were emptied.
echo'my var '.$_GET['myvariablename'];
//return empty value
The Correct Way To get Get Variable from Rewrite Rules
But some conditions must be fulfilled. Please read on.
If Using get_query_var is still Empty means you use non standard variable name
Here is the list of standard query vars that you can use.
Register Your Variable Name
If you use your custom variable, you must add the variable as below.
Recently my toilet always overflow. I suspected it was due to the water inlet kept pumping in water.
My methods to Verify the Water Overflow
1. I adjust the water inlet lower.
2. If #1 fail, check whether there was water coming out from the water inlet hose
Adjust the Water Inlet
My water inlet can adjust its float. So I thought at first due to long time the float move by itself. So I lowered down the float.
Outcome: Still overflow
Check Whether Water Coming in from Water Inlet Hose
So I put the water inlet hose near the toilet body overnight. If it was wet then I know the water inlet needs to be replaced.
Outcome: Still overflow but the hose was dried.
For me there was only one conclusion because which was the water inlet that caused the water overflow. The water inlet was the only part that allows water to come in.
My Solution – Replace to new Water Inlet
At first I wanted to buy from Shopee which cost only around RM10, but after reading bad review. I decided to buy from a shop that cost me RM22. The quality is good and still works till now. I wanted to buy Techplas but it costs RM33 and at that time, I wasn’t really sure whether the overflow was really due to water inlet or other problems.
Outcome: No more overflow
I noticed after 8 years I have to change my toilet water inlet. I started to use the toilet in 2013. Now both my toilet water inlets have been replaced to new ones.
I bought IKEA PAX wardrobe at IKEA Damansara on 29th August 2021 and got it delivered on 31st August 2021. We had 50% discount for delivery thanks to Merdeka day. So we just paid RM35 for delivery.
We bought 2 sets of Ikea Pax Wardrobe with 150 cm (width) x 60 (depth) cm x 236 cm (height).

Why We Chose Ikea Wardrobe?
Guarantee of 10 years
We had good experience with Ikea kitchen cabinet when we had issue with it, Ikea replaced our whole kitchen cabinet for free as it was still under guarantee.
You can change the shelves or add new shelf or drawer easily.
Why We decided To Install Ourselves the Wardrobe?
Actually we didn’t at first. But due to MCO Covid-19, Ikea didn’t do any installation until further notice.
When we received our Ikea wardrobe boxes, the delivery guy said they can do installation at 10% of total price.
We agreed to the price but they could only do it the next day.
Because we couldn’t wait and were too excited. We decided to install it ourselves.
What Are Tools Required?
Screwdrivers – 2 sets
Most of the time you just need one. But to join 2 frames together easily you need to use 2 screwdrivers.
Ikea gave one female and one male screw to join those 2 frames. So one screwdriver hold one screw while other turn to tighten the other screw.
Cordless screwdriver cum cordless wood drill
Cordless screwdriver uses for closing gap of shelf supports plug and to screw L shape shelf to the frame.
Wood drill bit
You need 2 sizes, the smallest one for the door handle drill and bigger one to make a whole for screw that will be used to join 2 frames.
We used water ruler to ensure door handles were aligned horizontally.
Hammer was used to nail the plywood at the back of the wardrobe.
F clamp – 2 sets
F clamp is used to join 2 frames together. IKEA instruction shows that we have to use 2 F clamps but I managed to do it with one F clamp because I only got one.
How Easy it is to do it yourself the Ikea Wardrobe Installation?
Relatively it was easy but it was tiring. It took us nearly 12 hours to complete the whole wardrobe.
The hard part was installing the handle of the door. We made mistakes on it but the mistakes wasn’t that obvious.
What mistakes did we make during the installation?
Wood scar on the door handle
If drill from inside the door create wood scar on the exterior of the door. So the right way was to drill from exterior so the wood scar was only visible from the inside.
The L shape shelf
We wrongly assembled the L shape shelf. We had to disassembled and carefully read the IKEA instructions.
Secondly, we didn’t properly screw the L shape shelf to the frame until there was gap between the shelf and the frame body. When this happened, the drawer was stuck, it couldn’t be opened. We had to unscrew and screw it again.
One person drill the screw at the bottom of L shape shelf while the other push it to the side to avoid it from making a gap with the frame.
What tips we can give for anyone wants to do themselves?
Shelf Supports Plug
Use your cordless screwdriver to screw the supports plug to ensure there is no gap between the supports plug and the wardrobe frame.
At first, we tried to screw it manually but there was always a gap and hard to properly put the shelf on top of the supports plug.
The Door Handle Wood Scar Due to Drilling
Use another unused wood at the other side of drilling section to avoid any wood scar as shown in the below videos.
Would we do it by ourselves again?
Yes. Even though it was tiring but we were excited and felt fulfilled when it was successfully assembled.
