admin_init

This action is documented in wp-admin/admin.php.

Description

do_action( 'admin_init' ); 

Note, this does not just run on user-facing admin screens. It runs on admin-ajax.php and admin-post.php as well.

This is roughly analogous to the more general init hook, which fires earlier.


Usage

To run the hook, copy the example below.
  1. // run the action 
  2. do_action( 'admin_init' ); 
The following example is for adding a hook callback.
  1. // define the admin_init callback 
  2. function action_admin_init( ) { 
  3. // make action magic happen here... 
  4. }; 
  5.  
  6. // add the action 
  7. add_action( 'admin_init', 'action_admin_init', 10, 0 ); 
To remove a hook callback, use the example below.
  1. // remove the action 
  2. remove_action( 'admin_init', 'action_admin_init', 10, 0 );
