Where do plug-ins store their data? (4 posts)

    I am trying to troubleshoot a plug-in but can't figure out where the heck it is storing the data entered in the admin area? Is there a place in the database where this is stored or ... ?

    Thanks in advance!

    That depends on the plugin. Some just write to an existing directory, others create a new directory and yet others use the database. Do you have a specific plugin in mind?

    It stores in wp_options table under a row with option name called "google_news"
