Show Me Options

How many times have you activated a plugin and the searched hopelessly for it's options page? With new plugins it is like a trend to hide them better.

Show Me Options is a plugin designed to give you a link to the options page when you need it and where you want it.

When you activate a new plugin, Show Me Options will show you a link you can use immediately.

No more wandering around menus, just install the plugin and click options - always waiting on the same place.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does it work?

Show Me Options has two methods for determining the plugin's options page. The first is to scan through the WordPress submenu structure and try to find a match. But sometimes WordPress authors get creative and come up with some unusual names. So then is the 'die hard' method applied, comparison of multidimensional arrays of submenu before and after the plugin activation.

    this seems like a very good plugin, while it does provide a quick shortcut to the newest installed plugin on top that feature is so-so and basically useless if you activate plugins in bulk which i just tried on wp wordpress 3.0.1 blog and it dont work.

    Plugin activated.
    Proceed to plugin options (Add to Footer).
    ----------------------------------------------------

    Add to Footer
    Allows you to add absolutely anything to the footer of your WordPress theme. Configure...
    Deactivate | Edit
    Version 1.0.1 | By Ajay D'Souza | Visit plugin site

    ===============================
    Some plugins have the Configure... link next to the description in the PLUGINS page as shown above. what I would like to see is a standard calling this OPTIONS and putting it right next to the menus per each plugin (THIS SHOULD ALSO BE ABLE TO INSTALL IN BULK as I have 80+ plugins I use on 1 blog)

    Activate/Deactivate | Edit (PHP/HTML) | Delete > OPTIONS / Configure

    thank you for this great plug-in. It has allieviated some headaches. But wordpress is not for normal people. It's for the techies. Again, thanks for helping this non-techie find her options!!!

    best to you.

    Great and simple plugin. Works as advertised. Would be great if it added a link to a plugin's readme.txt file...
