well, i had a ticket already opened, by was closed as dublicate.

however, it was not a duplicate..

what will WP loose, if you add this feature to core?
However, developers will have a great help...

now, i wish, that in wp-login.php, there was defined a variable like this:

so, if that constant is defined, that means i am on wp-login page..
WHY? because 10000s of users use "hide-login-page" feature (i.e. iThemes security or other plugins), so URLs are no-longer example.com/wp-login.php and pagenow=='wp-login.php' returns false!

same for ID_ADMIN()... those plugins have feature to hide-admin-url, thus, wp-admin are no longer accessible, that make is_admin() to return false..

thus, WHAT ON EARTH, if you simply put:
define("WP_ADMIN_page_executed", true);

so, everyone will have a solution, with checking those constants, instead of URL comparisons and etc..

i am exhausting to quarrel with skeptics, who always say "why that's needed"...
ok, you dont need, but we NEED, so is that hard to update that?

thanks for understanding.

Hi @tazotodua,

I appreciate your enthusiasm for this request. However, I also feel that this is not something that should be added to WordPress Core.

The is_admin() function is not based on the page's URL, so if the URLs are changed by a plugin, is_admin() should still return true. Also, as @SergeyBiryukov noted on #19898, constants are not an acceptable way to check for context. They are not filterable and are hard to verify in unit tests (see #25669).
