    Hi, it should be located at the bottom of the Symposium menu. You may try to access it through
    wp-admin/admin.php?page=wp-symposium-blogpost/wp-symposium-blogpost_admin.php
    However, chances are high that you run into a permissions error...?

    Which versions of WP and WPS are you running?

    I will come back to you tomorrow, "my" tomorrow - I'm in France. I need a couple of tests.
    For my understanding, how long has it been that you don't see this options page?

    from the start :-( Maybe I'm just stupid. Do you have a screenshot from the menu item?

    The last screenshot here has the options page, but I cut the dashboard sidebar to keep the 'useful parts' so to speak. This won't help you with regards to the menu item. Plus, this screenshot is no longer up to date, following the recent addition of posts excerpts, further to your suggestion ;)

    If you like, you may download the developement version here, and give it a try. The only differences are a few tests on top of main file, and the way this page is registrered...

    is there a positioning for the menu item somewhere in the plugin php? Sometimes it works be deleting the line that tells where to position the menu item. I encountered this issue before with another plugin.

    The page is registrered with add_submenu_page, under WP Symposium, so there's no risk it gets overwritten as this could be the case with add_menu_page...

    As I wrote in my previous post, I have changed a little something in the way the page is registrered, that might explain why some don't see it and some do see it. Would you mind giving a try to the development version here and let me know if this is better for you? If so I would then release it. Thanks in advance!

    Hallo Thomas
    Could you please tell me if the latest updates have solved your issue, or if it still needs to be investigated ?
    Thanks

    issue returned. our developer suggests

    to change the capability from edit_themes to manage_options

    That makes sense, moreover this cap is already used for the wp_die on top of the page... But I admit I had missed that one until now.
    Thanks for the feedback, very useful!
