    I have the menu setup but I help with creating the admin page. I get includes errors with this...

    <?php
    
        //must check that the user has the required capability
        if (!current_user_can('manage_options'))
        {
          wp_die( __('You do not have sufficient permissions to access this page.') );
        }
    
        // variables for the field and option names
        $opt_name = mysql_real_escape_string($_POST['name']);
        $hidden_field_name = 'mt_submit_hidden';
        $data_field_name = 'name';
    
        // See if the user has posted us some information
        // If they did, this hidden field will be set to 'Y'
        if( isset($_POST[ $hidden_field_name ]) && $_POST[ $hidden_field_name ] == 'Y' ) {
            // Read their posted value
            $opt_val = $_POST[ $data_field_name ];
    
            // Save the posted value in the database
    
            // Put an settings updated message on the screen
    
    ?>
    	<div class="updated"><p><strong><?php _e('settings saved.', 'menu-test' ); ?></strong></p></div>
    <?php
    
        }
    
        // Now display the settings editing screen
    
        echo '<div class="wrap">';
    
        // settings form
    
        ?>
    
        <form name="form1" method="post" action="">
        <input type="hidden" name="<?php echo $hidden_field_name; ?>" value="Y">
    
        <p>
        <input type="text" name="<?php echo $data_field_name; ?>" value="<?php echo $opt_val; ?>" size="50">
        </p><hr />
    
        <p class="submit">
        <input type="submit" name="Submit" class="button-primary" value="<?php esc_attr_e('Save Changes') ?>" />
        </p>
    
        </form>
        </div>

    Using Admin Menu Editor for this purpose is probably the wrong approach. If you're making a plugin or theme and need to add an admin page, please use the administration menu functions instead.

    Also, the Hacks forum would be a better place for your plugin development questions.

    Then what exactly is the point of admin-menu-plugin ?

    It's not to create a menu that links to new admin pages?

    Most often, people use this plugin to:

    • Hide/show menus for specific roles.
    • Customize existing menu items - change their name, URL, position, and so on.
    • Re-order and organize the admin menu to better fit the users' needs.
    • Create menu items that link to external pages, such as tutorials.

    Hi bkcohen

    Could this help?
    http://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-help/

    It allows me to create help documents and install them in the Admin menu.

    Hope this helps.

    Janis, thanks again for such professional work.
