More Information

  • This function is a simple wrapper for a call to add_submenu_page(), passing the received arguments and specifying ‘edit.php‘ as the $parent_slug argument. This means the new page will be added as a sub menu to the Posts menu.
  • The $capability parameter is used to determine whether or not the page is included in the menu based on the Roles and Capabilities) of the current user.
  • The function handling the output of the options page should also verify the user’s capabilities.
  • If you’re running into the »You do not have sufficient permissions to access this page.« message in a `wp_die()` screen, then you’ve hooked too early. The hook, you should use is `admin_menu`.

Sample Usage

Example

Typical usage occurs in a function registered with the ‘admin_menu‘ hook (see Adding Administration Menus):

/**
 * Adds a submenu item to the "Posts" menu in the admin.
 */
function wpdocs_my_plugin_menu() {
    add_posts_page(
        __( 'My Plugin Posts Page', 'textdomain' ),
        __( 'My Plugin', 'textdomain' ),
        'read',
        'my-unique-identifier',
        'wpdocs_my_plugin_function'
    );
}
add_action( 'admin_menu', 'wpdocs_my_plugin_menu');
