Before I start, I am developing my own theme, this problem is in relation to that, not to a theme I purchased or downloaded.
I was creating an options table, and assigning all my options to:
$option = get_option('aisis_core');
and then I decided to add in something like:
thinking that, that would be my reset, well it seems that now when I do a var dump on option, I get
Now I know that delete_option() will delete the option from "options table", so I assumed add_option() would fix the issue, so after I deleted aisis_core I added it back, still the same issue.
Now my options wont save, that is, if I click a check box that before would stay clicked after a page refresh from hitting submit - it wont stay checked. mostly cause there's no where to save it to.
I have tried:
deleting the table for this dev install and re creating it (essentially reinstalling WordPress), I have tried add_option('aisis_core'), and I have tried switching themes, to no avail.
