manage_(screen_id)_columns filter-hookWP 3.0.0

Filters the column headers for a list table on a specific screen.

The dynamic portion of the hook name, $screen->id, refers to the ID of a specific screen. For example, the screen ID for the Posts list table is edit-post, so the filter for that screen would be manage_edit-post_columns.


add_filter( 'manage_(screen_id)_columns', 'wp_kama_manage_screen_id_columns_filter' );

 * Function for `manage_(screen_id)_columns` filter-hook.

function wp_kama_manage_screen_id_columns_filter( $columns ){

	// filter...
	return $columns;
