Wordpress 2.7 causes 404s for some plugin admin pages
|Reported by:||mark8barnes||Owned by:||ryan|
I have a plugin which has worked fine in all previous recent versions of WP. The plugin creates a top-level menu with several sub-menus. In WP2.7, sub-menus have the wrong URL on certain menus.
That is, if I am on (e.g.) the "write" page, the URL for my submenu is
But if I am on the dashboard, the URL for my submenu is
This gives a 404. The comments page does the same. Neither dashboard or comments have a submenu of their own - perhaps that makes the difference.
The code my plugin uses to create the submenus can be seen here: (lines 61f).
I understand how to fix this in my plugin, but wanted to create the ticket to (1) Prompt documentation for other developers or (2) Fix the core to prevent this happening.
