What is the definite hook which identifies links.php page (add, edit, delete, etc. Blogroll Links), and only this page?

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks, cadeyrn


Sorry, I forgot to mention, I need this hook in the admin area. I have a plugin, that brakes an other one, because both are triggered by the admin_menu add_action. Therefore I need an add_action point that is only valid for the admin menu's link edit/add/delete part.

OK, I made an awful, but working solution: the hook is admin_menu, than, in the called function, I added

if( strstr($_SERVER['PHP_SELF'],'link.php')

in the begining.

If there's a better solution, please someone send it.


Inside the (public) wp template hierarchy there's no links.php file expected. Links are a built in taxonomy, so I (guess) it's if ( is_archive( 'link_category' ) ) /* do stuff */.

Or are you talking about admin pages?

  • The only hook i know is the admin_menu hook itself. From a brief look at /wp-root/wp-admin/link-manager.php i couldn't find any hooks, so i guess you'll have to rely on those mentioned in the action API/reference: codex.wordpress.org/Plugin_API/Action_Reference

  • Oh, and you could still use priority with the hook to avoid collisions: add_action( 'admin_menu', 'some_action', 30 ).

Hook for what exactly?

And in any case it is easy to use any hook and check if you are at the right page. For example by comparing global $hook_suffix variable to link-manager.php (there is no links.php by the way). There is also block of dynamic hooks that rely on this variable in admin-header.php.
