Extended Options

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


Access the Extended Options menu from Dashboard > Settings > Extended to set the plugin options. To use this plugin, you do not need to edit any theme files or WordPress core files.

Everything this plugin does happens based on settings in the Extended menu. Extended Options does require, however, the following hooks/actions to be present in the certain files of your active theme.

  • wp_head() should be present in your header.php theme file.
  • wp_footer() should be present in your footer.php theme file.
  • do_action( 'comment_form', $post->ID ) should be present in your comments.php theme file.

If your theme files are missing these, please contact the theme author and ask him or her nicely to correct these omissions.
