Modify admin help dropdown

Each WordPress admin screen has a Help button. This area drop downs and contains text that helps the user understand the features of the specific page. When creating a custom site for your clients or a plugin, then you may find a need to modify the Help Dropdown text.

Adding this code to the functions.php of your wordpress theme will allow you to modify the help menu dropdown.

 

 

add_action('load-page-new.php','add_custom_help_page');
add_action('load-page.php','add_custom_help_page');
function add_custom_help_page() {
//the contextual help filter
add_filter('contextual_help','custom_page_help');
}
function custom_page_help($help) {
//keep the existing help copy
echo $help;
//add some new copy
echo "<h5>Custom Features</h5>";
echo "<p>Content placed above the more divider will appear in column 1. Content placed below the divider will appear in column 2.</p>";
}
