Show All Settings in Menu


This plugin adds an “All Settings” option in your Settings administration panel, as shown in the screenshots tab.

This same panel can be reached by navigating to []/wp-admin/options.php.


This plugin was created and tested using WordPress 3.9.1. No guarantee provided – please use the All Settings panel with caution. If you experience any issues, please let the developer know. You should only install this plugin if you\’re confident in your abilities with options.php.


  • Menu item is visible in Settings tab.


  1. Download the plugin & install it to your wp-content/plugins folder (or use the Plugins menu through the WordPress Administration section)
  2. Activate the plugin
  3. Navigate to Settings > All Settings


Q: Why? Why are you doing this!?

A: Because developers could often have need for this panel. It’s a very handy and very underused feature that I’m hoping to bring to the forefront.

Q: Who would use this?

A: Plugin or Theme developers who frequently need access to these settings, but don’t want to crack open the database.

Q: If I’m a regular user, do I need this plugin?

A: Probably not – because it contains important settings, you run the risk of accidentally changing something that could cause problems. Only install this plugin if you also like to live dangerously.

Q: Isn’t this the same thing as just going to `[]/wp-admin/options.php`?

A: Yep, pretty much! This just makes that feature more accessible.

Q: I was messing around with the settings page and now my site is broken!?

A: Sorry about that, but there’s not much I can do 🙁 Install from a backup or look into changing the value back through mySQL. You should only install this plugin if you’re confident in your abilities with options.php.
