In my application, i have one form. Now if user is in front end i want to display the title but if he is in back end i do not want to display it.

I do not want to check it based on user role.


Use is_admin(). It checks if you're viewing an Admin page, means the backend.

  • will it work for other user like subscriber ?

  • Yep. It works for all roles. Mar 13 '12 at 5:42
  • How about loading a script on a specific admin page?

  • The action hook admin_print_scripts is meant to do that. Dec 27 '12 at 5:09

    Of note, an ajax request will make this return TRUE. Also, right in the documentation it says that this is not meant to be used as a security check. Dec 12 '17 at 16:54

Use is_admin() to check if the the current page is an administration page. Despite its name this is not a user role check. It returns always FALSE on front end, no matter what role the user has.
