1 system.api.php hook_admin_paths()

Define administrative paths.

Modules may specify whether or not the paths they define in hook_menu() are to be considered administrative. Other modules may use this information to display those pages differently (e.g. in a different theme).

To change the administrative status of menu items defined in another module's hook_menu(), modules should implement hook_admin_paths_alter().

Return value

An associative array. For each item, the key is the path in question, in: a format acceptable to backdrop_match_path(). The value for each item should be TRUE (for paths considered administrative) or FALSE (for non- administrative paths).
