WooCommerce: Add Custom Page @ WordPress Admin Dashboard

If you’re developing custom WooCommerce documentation, reporting or functionalities for your clients, you probably also need to add a new “page” and a new “sidebar link” to the WordPress Admin Dashboard.

This is a very interesting topic and in the same way you can hide elements such as metaboxes, you can also add new ones. In my case, I had to implement a custom, admin-only form to enable product recommendations. Enjoy ๐Ÿ™‚

Add a new WordPress Admin Dashboard page under “Products”

add_action( 'admin_menu', 'bbloomer_wp_dashboard_products_new_page', 9999 );

function bbloomer_wp_dashboard_products_new_page() {
	add_submenu_page( 'edit.php?post_type=product', 'New Page Title', 'New Page Menu Title', 'edit_products', 'new_page_slug', 'bbloomer_wp_dashboard_products_new_page_callback', 9999 );
}

function bbloomer_wp_dashboard_products_new_page_callback() {
	echo '<div class="wrap"><h1 class="">New Page Title</h1>';
	// add your your HTML, PHP, CSS, jQUERY here
	echo '</div>';
}

Where to add custom code?

You should place custom PHP in functions.php and custom CSS in style.css of your child theme: where to place WooCommerce customization?

This code still works, unless you report otherwise. To exclude conflicts, temporarily switch to the Storefront theme, disable all plugins except WooCommerce, and test the snippet again: WooCommerce troubleshooting 101

  1. Is it possible to add a page to DASHBOARD > WOOCOMMERCE instead of PRODUCT?
    And if so how to achieve this?

    1. Hi Peter, thanks so much for your comment! Yes, this is definitely possible, but I’m afraid it’s custom work. If you’d like to get a quote, feel free to contact me here. Thanks a lot for your understanding!

  2. Have taken this one step further… converted to a plugin with an included page containing a ( css only ) tabbed interface *so it doesnt interfere with other codes.

    I have previously created a plugin for clients tom refer to when they are adding products.posts, pages etc. I use it a a teaching terminal right in the admin area.

    With a few little mods, its a tut area for clients, right in the products menu.

    Can post it here, if the need for it is voiced.

    1. Nice one Roberta! Sure, feel free to share ๐Ÿ™‚
