Tweak Hidden Options


Tweak Hidden Options is a way to modify various WordPress options that WordPress doesn’t link to from the standard WordPress interface.

All options are provided in safe select-down options, without any user-input data, so that it is perfectly safe for any user to use.

We plan on adding many more options to be edited — if you have any other suggestions, please let us know! You can contact us via
