network_admin_url() WP 3.0.0

Retrieves the URL to the admin panel for the network — many sites management (not for a single blog of the network): /wp-admin/network.

If call this function on single site instalation (not Multisite) the admin_url() function will be called.

Works based on: network_site_url()
Hooks from the function

String. Admin URL link with optional path appended.


network_admin_url( $path, $scheme );
The path to a specific page of the admin. Will be added to the URL.
Default: ''

The Protocol to be used. Can be:

  • http
  • https
  • relative - returns a relative URL (without domain).

Function uses get_site_url(), therefore it also understands all its parameter values.

Default: 'admin', which obeys force_ssl_admin() and is_ssl()


#1 Get the URL to the admin area for the network

$url = network_admin_url();

The result:


Or if SSL is used:


#2 Get the URL to the specific page of the network admin area

This example demonstrates how to add a path and specify the protocol and what the function will return.

In this example we want to get the URL to the «Users - Add new» page, and specify the protocol (scheme) to https.

$url = network_admin_url( 'user-new.php', 'https' );
//> https://example.com/wp-admin/network/user-new.php


Since 3.0.0 Introduced.

Code of network_admin_url() WP 5.7.2

function network_admin_url( $path = '', $scheme = 'admin' ) {
	if ( ! is_multisite() ) {
		return admin_url( $path, $scheme );

	$url = network_site_url( 'wp-admin/network/', $scheme );

	if ( $path && is_string( $path ) ) {
		$url .= ltrim( $path, '/' );

	 * Filters the network admin URL.
	 * @since 3.0.0
