Top-level menu duplicated as submenu in admin section plugin

  • I’ve seen a couple of posts about this, but none of the fixes seem to be working for me. I’m trying to create a menu for a plugin which has two submenus, but the top-level title keeps being duplicated as a submenu.

    The following are variations I’ve tried to get this working:

    add_menu_page("Manage News", "Manage News", 1, "manage_news_admin", "include_core");
    add_submenu_page(basename(__FILE__), 'Edit', 'Edit', 10, basename(__FILE__), 'section_edit');
    add_menu_page("Manage News", "Manage News", 1, "manage_news_admin", "include_core");
    add_submenu_page(basename(__FILE__), 'Edit', 'Edit', 10, basename(__FILE__), 'section_edit');
    add_menu_page("Manage News", "Manage News", 1, "manage_news_admin", "include_core");
    add_submenu_page(__FILE__, 'Edit', 'Edit', 10, 'section-edit', 'section_edit');
    add_menu_page("Manage News", "Manage News", 1, "manage_news_admin", "include_core");
    add_submenu_page('section_edit', 'section_edit', 'section_edit', 10, 'section-edit', 'section_edit');

    And the full code for the plugin file is:

    function configure_menu(){
    add_menu_page("Manage News", "Manage News", 1, "manage_news_admin", "include_core");
    [code for removing duplicate goes here];
    }
    
    function include_core(){
    include('aggregator/aggregator_core.php');
    }
    
    function feed_list_admin() {
    include('aggregator/feed_management.php');
    }
    
    function feed_tags_admin() {
    include('aggregator/feed_tag_management.php');
    }
    
    function feed_list_actions() {
    add_submenu_page("manage_news_admin", "Feed List", "Feed List", 1, "aggregator/feed_management.php", "feed_list_admin");
    }
    
    function feed_tags_actions() {
    add_submenu_page("manage_news_admin", "Feed Keywords", "Feed Keywords", 1, "aggregator/feed_tag_management.php", "feed_tags_admin");
    }
    
    add_action('admin_menu', 'configure_menu');
    
    add_action('admin_menu', 'feed_list_actions');
    
    add_action('admin_menu', 'feed_tags_actions');

    If anyone has any advice on how to get this working I would really appreciate it, as this is pretty much the only bit left to get working.

  • Should work.

    add_menu_page("Manage News", "Manage News", "manage_news_admin", "include_core");
    add_submenu_page("manage_news_admin", "News", "Manage", "manage_news_admin", "include_core");

    Don’t show in menu.

    add_submenu_page("manage_news_admin", "News", "", "manage_news_admin", "include_core");

    Thanks for the help, but that doesn’t seem to work for me. If I remove the number from the add_menu_page function as you’ve got in that first code segment the entire menu disappears rather than just the sub-menu which duplicates the top-level menu. Keeping the number and using the same second lines you wrote don’t seem to work either.

    EDIT: I don’t know if this’ll make any difference, but It’s probably worth mentioning that I’m running this on XAMPP just in case this is what’s causing the problem

    Frustrating as hell eh?

    This finally did it for me (in WP 3.0.1):

    add_menu_page('page_title','menu_title','manage_options','menu_slug','function');
    add_submenu_page('menu_slug','','','manage_options','menu_slug','function');
    add_submenu_page('menu_slug','1st Real Submenu','1st Real Submenu','manage_options','1st_real_submenu_slug','function');

    What results from this setup is that the 3rd line (the 2nd submenu page we’re adding) will be the first submenu that displays.

    Your last fix worked for me!

    I inserted your second line AFTER my add_menu_page line and inserted my custom ‘menu_slug” in both places, left everything else along and the duplicate disappeared.

    It’s because of you I have a couple of hairs left on my head…
