#9426 closed defect (bug) (worksforme)

Submenu Output does not recorgnize Selection properly if the parameter does not end with .php

Reported by: hakre Owned by: ryan
Milestone: Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version:
Component: Menus Keywords:
Focuses: Cc:


Adding a submenu (API: add_submenu_page() ) needs the $file parameter to be a string ending with '.php'. If not, highlighting the current submenu selection in the Backend will fail.

Additionally it came to my attention that the functions docblock is missing (wp-admin/includes/plugin.php ~648).

Because of this, it is unclear where the bug is located. In the API function (documentation) or in the output function for that menu (currently unknown where that is located for me).

can you confirm this in trunk? I haven't noticed this with any of my plugins that add submenus without a .php extension.

just an update of the testcase. better naming, better linking, whatever. might come in handy to test regressions.
