add_users_page( string $page_title, string $menu_title, string $capability, string $menu_slug, callable $callback = , int $position = null ): string|false

The slug name to refer to this menu by (should be unique for this menu).
The function to be called to output the content for this page.


The position in the menu order this item should appear.



string|false The resulting page’s hook_suffix, or false if the user does not have the capability required.

More Information

  • NOTE: If you’re running into the »You do not have sufficient permissions to access this page.« message in a `wp_die() ` screen, then you’ve hooked too early. The hook you should use is `admin_menu`.
  • This function is a simple wrapper for a call to add_submenu_page() , passing the received arguments and specifying ‘users.php‘ or ‘profile.php‘ (depending upon the users’ capability) as the $parent_slug argument. This means the new page will be added as a sub-menu to the Users or Profile menu.
  • The Users menu is only available to users with the ability to edit other users. Users with capability below this level will see a Profile menu instead.


function add_users_page( $page_title, $menu_title, $capability, $menu_slug, $callback = '', $position = null ) {
	if ( current_user_can( 'edit_users' ) ) {
		$parent = 'users.php';
	} else {
		$parent = 'profile.php';
	return add_submenu_page( $parent, $page_title, $menu_title, $capability, $menu_slug, $callback, $position );

    Basic Example

    Typical usage occurs in a function registered with the ‘admin_menu‘ hook (see Adding Administration Menus):

     * Register a new page under "Users".
    function wpdocs_my_users_menu() {
    		__( 'My Plugin Users', 'textdomain' ),
    		__( 'My Plugin', 'textdomain' ),
    add_action('admin_menu', 'wpdocs_my_users_menu');
