Extended Options

Extended Options keeps meta data and certain WordPress tweaks persistent regardless of the active theme without editing any theme files.

Extended Options manages certain meta data and content add-ins from within the WordPress dashboard. This plugin adds the capacity for meta data and content added to the footer and head areas to be kept consistent regardless of a theme change or upgrade.

Extended Options is for WordPress 2.6.x and, more specifically, manages following meta links and tweaks:

  • Archive meta links
  • Relationship meta links
  • Favicon meta links (blog and dashboard)
  • OpenID meta links
  • MicroID meta links
  • Geo tag meta links
  • Robots meta links
  • Enabling/disabling author archives
  • Enabling/disabling 404 headers
  • Enforcing www. preference
  • Protocol discovery meta links (Atom, RSD, WLW)
  • Enabling/disabled generator meta link
  • General meta add-in content
  • General comment form add-in content
  • General footer add-in content

While this collection of meta data and tweaks appear random, these are specific modifications I grew tired of making whenever I activated a different theme or upgraded an old one. I needed a plugin to manage these needs that didn't overlap significantly with other plugins I used.

Special thanks to some awesome code integrated (and possibly modified) with Extended Options.

Thanks to those fellows for providing excellent plugins to the community.
