Backend only WordPress 03

I start testing the redirection to a friendly WordPress backend.

Getting to the admin

In my earlier post I’ve expressed the wish to allow accessing the WordPress admin area in a friendly way mapping it to the /admin path and not the /wp/wp-admin/ one. I will add a first test in the tests/acceptance/BackendRedirectionCest.php to prove the concept

<?php use \AcceptanceTester; class BackendRedirectionCest { public function _before( AcceptanceTester $I ) { } public function _after( AcceptanceTester $I ) { } // other tests... /** * @test * it should redirect to the admin area when accessing /admin with rights */ public function it_should_redirect_to_the_admin_area_when_accessing_admin_with_rights(AcceptanceTester $I) { $I->wantTo( "go to the wp admin area using the /admin path" ); $I->amOnPage( '/admin' ); $I->seeElement( 'body.wp-admin' ); } } 

but this test will fail
backend redirection fail
To make sure that’s not a false failure I manually browse to the /admin path and, after some redirection magic, end at the /wp/wp-admin path: the test should pass.
It’s a silly mistake: I need some access rights to get to the WordPress admin area and, specifically, will try to access as administrator; I change the test to use one of WP Browser sugar methods

/** * @test * it should redirect to the admin area when accessing /admin with rights */ public function it_should_redirect_to_the_admin_area_when_accessing_admin_with_rights(AcceptanceTester $I) { $I->wantTo( "go to the wp admin area using the /admin path" ); // this will set a session cookie that will be read... $I->loginAsAdmin(); // ...here $I->amOnPage( '/admin' ); $I->seeElement( 'body.wp-admin' ); } 

To make sure that what’s happening is what I think I test that a user with no auth cookies set will be redirected to the WordPress login screen

/** * @test * it should redirect to WordPress login screen when trying to access admin w/o rights */ public function it_should_redirect_to_word_press_login_screen_when_trying_to_access_admin_w_o_rights(AcceptanceTester $I) { $I->wantTo( "be redirected to the WordPress login when trying to access /admin w/o rights" ); $I->amOnPage( '/admin' ); $I->seeElement( 'body.login' ); } 

Both the tests will pass confirming my idea. So far so good.
backend redirection success

Next

I will test the /login path and begin some routing work.
