I would like to know the location of allValue.php file.

    In a plugin, probably. Or it might just be a slug registered in add_menu_page that looks like a PHP filename. You'll have to look at your plugins - it's not from core.

    @abuabu It sounds like you're trying to create an admin page in the WordPress dashboard. Is that right? If so, can you provide a bit more context as to what you're trying to accomplish? Here's the codex for creating admin pages: codex.wordpress.org/Adding_Administration_Menus Mar 26 '19 at 15:58

    @abuabu are you asking where an existing admin page is located? Or are you asking how to add an admin page to WP Admin? allValue.php doesn't mean there's a file named allValue.php, it's just a coincidence, it's just an identifier, not a filename, e.g. /wp-admin/admin.php?page=jetpack is valid

I would like to know the location of allValue.php file.

That's not how it works. The value of page doesn't tell WP which file to load, it's just a name, an identifier ( the menu_slug to be specific ).

For example, we can use this code to add a top level menu page to WP Admin:

 * Register a custom menu page.
function registerAbusAdminMenu() {
        'Abus Menu',
        'Abus menu',
add_action( 'admin_menu', 'registerAbusAdminMenu' );

function helloAbu() {
    echo "<p>Hello Abu!</p>";

Notice that the menu slug parameter I chose was abu. Some people don't like picking a menu slug though, they use the name of the file the code is in, but that's just coincidence. WP doesn't use that value to load a file ( that would be a security vulnerability ), it's the 5th argument to the function that controls what gets displayed/loaded, not a filename.

See the docs here for other functions to add submenus, options pages, etc, each function will have explanations and examples

    I was just putting a similar answer together. Mine also started with "That's not how it works." 😄 Mar 27 '19 at 14:38
  • @MikeNGarrett feel free to post your own answer, different perspectives on the solution can help understanding, and you might write a better answer :p
