Do any of you know a way to check if the current page is the permalink admin page?

// 'current_screen' action fires after the current screen has been set
add_action( 'current_screen', 'my_check_current_screen' );

// $current_screen is WP_Screen object passed by the 'current_screen' action
function my_check_current_screen( $current_screen ) {

    // compare current screen ID to the string of your choice
    if( 'options-permalink' === $current_screen->id ) {
        echo 'I am on the "Permalink Settings" screen';

You can check what you can play with using the 'current_screen' action instead of global $pagenow:

add_action( 'current_screen', 'my_print_current_screen_object' );

function my_print_current_screen_object( $current_screen ) {

    echo '<pre>';
    print_r( $current_screen );
    echo '</pre>';


Try below lines into your function.

global $pagenow;
echo $pagenow; // This should give you current page of admin page

I don't know exactly what you want to do. But basically, you can use:

is_page( 'contact' ) // To see if this page is the page contact

is_singular( 'post' ) // To see if this is a spefic post type

get_permalink() // To get the permalink of a post inside the loop

global $pagenow // To get the page you are now

If you explain better what you want, it is easier to offer a better answer.
