a very simple question regarding the Wordpress backend. I would like to hardcode the link of "view post" in the post section.

enter image description here

does anyone of you know which part I find it?


  • What precisely do you mean by hardcode? Where would it lead if not to the post's permalink, which is used in maaany places around admin?

You'll have to implement your version of the

$messages['post'] array

which's originally found in edit-form-advanced.php.

  • thanks found it. Can I just replace esc_url('http://www.whatever.com'); and remove the $post_ID
