Create custom add_menu_page with add_submenu_page admin panel

As per request add_menu_page and add_submenu_page snippet. This is a slimmed down version from a theme I have been working on that should get you started creating admin menus. Adding this snippet to the functions.php of your wordpress theme will create a custom admin menu with two sub menus.


( example screenshot )

 
function theme_options_panel(){
  add_menu_page('Theme page title', 'Theme menu label', 'manage_options', 'theme-options', 'wps_theme_func');
  add_submenu_page( 'theme-options', 'Settings page title', 'Settings menu label', 'manage_options', 'theme-op-settings', 'wps_theme_func_settings');
  add_submenu_page( 'theme-options', 'FAQ page title', 'FAQ menu label', 'manage_options', 'theme-op-faq', 'wps_theme_func_faq');
}
add_action('admin_menu', 'theme_options_panel');

function wps_theme_func(){
		echo '<div class="wrap"><div id="icon-options-general" class="icon32"><br></div>
		<h2>Theme</h2></div>';
}
function wps_theme_func_settings(){
		echo '<div class="wrap"><div id="icon-options-general" class="icon32"><br></div>
		<h2>Settings</h2></div>';
}
function wps_theme_func_faq(){
		echo '<div class="wrap"><div id="icon-options-general" class="icon32"><br></div>
		<h2>FAQ</h2></div>';
}

  9. Is it posible to add a top level item with current user info (avatar, username, first and last name, something like the top right user info pannel in the admin bar. I want to do this because i didnt find any solution for front end posting that fits all my needs so Ill let user post fron the backoffice but I want to make a really cool experience by adding some cool stuff in the admin area. Heres and example https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/12646264/example-user-info-pannel.jpg

    1. Hi Aeonx,

      I don’t think so as add_menu_page would only except specific parameters. The only thing I could think of would be to try and add HTML within the title. The problem is that would be placed within an anchor. The other option would be to insert something into the footer of the admin then use javascript to remove and place it into the admin menu after the fact. Keep in mind this is not something I have looked into so may be an easier way.
