When WP_CONTENT_DIR and WP_CONTENT_URL is employed to use an alternate content directory while giving WordPress its own directory (https://codex.wordpress.org/Giving_WordPress_Its_Own_Directory) some views related styles and scripts result in 404s in admin.

example.dev folder structure :

|-- app
|     |-- plugins
|     |    |-- wp-views
|     |
|     |-- themes
|     |    |-- twentyfifteen
|     |
|     |-- uploads
|-- wp (wordpress files)
|-- .htaccess
|-- index.php

define the following in wp-config.php:

define( 'WP_CONTENT_DIR', $_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT'] . '/app' );
define( 'WP_CONTENT_URL', '<em><u>hidden link</u></em>'.$_SERVER['HTTP_HOST']. '/app');

navigate to the plugins admin url:
hidden link

css/js expected paths:
hidden link
hidden link

css/js actual paths (non existant):
hidden link
hidden link

Thank you for providing the details. This issue is already in some consideration by our Dev Team. However, I have forwarded this one too. I hope they will come up with a suggestion or a solution.

I or one of the team member will update you, as soon as there's a progress.

Thank you for your patience and cooperation.

I just wanted to update you that the said issue is under the development, and most probably be fixed in the next release. However, there's not an ETA provided so far.

I apologize the delay here

We are currently working on a major refactor of all the code located inside the toolset-common directories in each Toolset plugin.

It involves reorganization of files, new and shared utilities, a common loader to avoid comaptibility and release issues and some cleaning - included the removal of this wp-pointer.php file and all its assets.

When exactly our developers will release a Update including the required Fix is not up-to us Supporters to determine.
Each issue reported in, whether a bug or a new feature request, is taken seriously into consideration.
It is given a high or low priority based on a number of factors.
Factors which those with the overview of all things related are in the best position to determine.
I apologize any inconvenience this may cause.

Please do not hesitate to open a new thread if other issues or problems arise

Thank you for your patience.
