Add per-user options page to dashboard.

  • Hello. I cannot seem to find instructions for this in the Codex or on the forums…

    What I want to do is add an options page to the dashboard, that is visible to all users.

    This, I have succeeded in doing, using the settings API.

    However, I do not want the saved settings to be stored in wp_options in the way that an administrator’s control panel would. I want the settings to be stored in usermeta, on a per-user basis.

    For example, if the settings page has the following two checkboxes:

    [ ] Likes Cats
    [ ] Likes Dogs

    I want a successful save of the settings on that page to write the data to usermeta, so that each user can have their own cat/dog preferences.

    I cannot seem to find anything telling me how to make the Setting API do this.

    In short, How do I use the Setting API to save settings to usermeta for the current user?

    Thank you for your time 🙂
