Hi there,

At the moment I’m developing a new WordPress theme, and recently checked the code using the Theme Check plugin and it says I shouldn’t use the tag ‘add_menu_page’ to add admin pages. It says that I should use the ‘add_theme_page()’ tag instead.

The problem is that my theme options include subpages, and the ‘add_theme_page’ tag, doesn’t support them.

What should I do? Maintain the ‘add_menu_page’ tag or replace it with the suggested tag?

Thanks,

No, add_menu_page is fine. I think most authors use it as it allows for more flexibility and doesn’t make the Appearance submenu cluttered
