How To Create Custom WordPress Admin Page

Last Updated on July 5 2022 by dhimaskirana

In this tutorial, I will share about how to create a custom WordPress Admin page.

Create Top Level Menu

First, we need to create a top-level menu using the add_menu_page function and place it on the admin_menu action.

// Create Menu
add_action('admin_menu', function () {
    add_menu_page('Title Page', 'Title on Menu', 'manage_options', 'your-slug-page', 'page_callback', 'dashicons-grid-view', 90);

Create Page Callback

Next, we need to create page content. On add_menu_page, we define the page_callback function to output the menu. Let’s create the page output.

// Create Page Content
function page_callback() { ?>
    <div class="wrap">
        <h1><?php echo esc_html(get_admin_page_title()); ?></h1>
        <p>Hi, this is a custom WordPress Admin page.</p>
<?php }

If your HTML content is too long, I suggest you make a separate file for the page content. And then load it to your callback.

// Create Page Content
function page_callback() {
    include(plugin_dir_path(__FILE__) . 'custom-page-admin.php');

Good luck.
