Reviews

Simple and powerful

Bought a plugin that works great… but only if you turn on a certain setting in the Screen Options. I needed it to work for every user, and this FV Clone Screen Options saved the day… quickly.

This is the best thing ever

Screen options are great to remove unnecessary clutter from your WordPress Admin. Some themes and plugins just generate crazy amounts of meta boxes to confuse your users. Previously I’d hidden these metaboxes for my own user accounts and then been surprised when users came to me confused what fields to fill in. Now I can set my screen options nicely, and clone them to all the other users! Awesome! Instead of hiding them with Adminimize (which often doesn’t work with custom meta boxes) just using the core screen options is so much better because its super easy to find and turn them back on as required. Get this plugin! Clone all the Screen Options!

Excellent

I just wish I had found this plugin sooner. If you need to have default screen options this is your solution.
