I would like to create a plugin that is able to inject some html on admin-pages, no matter if these are post, pages, settings or any option page for a plugin.

So I am searching for a suitable hook, so that I could run code like this (pseudo-code):

function plugin_inject_html()
    if( preg_match( '<regexp to parse the url>', $_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'] ) > 0 )
        echo 'my html here';
add_action( '<the hook I am searching for', 'plugin_inject_html' );

So my question is:

Which action or filter would be suitable to hook in, so that the result of the echo would arrive in the right location of the overall admin-page (inside the div.wpbody-content)?


If you check out the source of the /wp-admin/admin-header.php page you find the following actions:

Inside div#wpbody:

  • in_admin_header,

Inside div.wpbody-content:

  • network_admin_notices
  • user_admin_notices
  • admin_notices
  • all_admin_notices

I'm not sure what you mean by the right location, but I guess the all_admin_notices action would be the most suitable one for you?

  • thank you, that seems pretty much to be what I am looking for! Thanks!!! – philipp Oct 14 '13 at 11:09
