I don't need my plugin running through wp-admin, including wp-login. How could I prevent it? is_admin works fine but i don't know how to ignore everything related to wp-admin (like wp-login.php). Thanks.

    What is your Plugin doing, and what hooks are you using to hook your Plugin into WordPress? Sep 26, 2011 at 13:34

1 Answer 1


Check the requested URI:

 && strpos($_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'], 'wp-login.php') === false 
 && strpos($_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'], 'wp-signup.php') === false) { ... }

But it's probably better to use a white-list style:

if(is_front_page() || is_singular() || is_archive()) { ... }

These 3 tags should cover pretty much all of the front-end...

    FYI: You can check $pagenow to find out the page, it'll look a little nicer than the $_SERVER checks..

    It totally depends on what the Plugin is actually doing. The query conditionals may or may not be available at the execution point at which the Plugin operates. Sep 26, 2011 at 13:36
