#37446 closed enhancement (fixed)

Introduce a filter for `self_admin_url()`

Reported by: flixos90's profile flixos90 Owned by: flixos90's profile flixos90
Milestone: 4.9 Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 3.1
Component: Administration Keywords: has-patch has-unit-tests
Focuses: multisite Cc:


I'm currently building a plugin which includes an additional administration panel (like the network or user admin). However, the function self_admin_url() is impossible to adjust to that new functionality. I would like to be able to have it return the admin URL to my new administration panel if it is active.

Therefore I propose to introduce a new filter self_admin_url for the function. A developer could hook into that, check whether the custom administration panel is currently active and then adjust the returned URL accordingly.

+1. We should probably also pass the $scheme value to the filter for completeness.

  • Keywords has-unit-tests added
  • Milestone changed from Future Release to 4.9
  • Owner set to flixos90
  • Status changed from new to assigned

In 37446.3.diff I added a few unit tests for self_admin_url().

It's currently not possible to test the function further without hacking a lot, since there is no way to influence function outcomes from e.g. is_network_admin(), since WP_Screen is final and cannot be mocked. The few tests that are there now at least perform the most basic checks and ensure the filter works.
