    I’m trying to figure this one out too. I’ve seen lots of instances of people making their own message div echo out before the options form, but this doesn’t seem like an elegant solution, and it means you have to process the posted form data yourself.

    I wonder if there is a way to check if options.php updated successfully, and if so, slide an update message in for display?

    Have you managed to find anything further wsqws?

    On your options page, you can have something like this at the top:

    <?php if ( ! isset( $_REQUEST['updated'] ) )
    		$_REQUEST['updated'] = false;
    	<div class="wrap">
        <?php screen_icon( 'themes' ); ?>
    	<h2>Theme Options</h2>
        <?php if ( false !== $_REQUEST['updated'] ) : ?>
    		<div id="message" class="updated fade"><p><strong><?php _e( 'Options saved' ); ?></strong></p></div>
    	<?php endif; ?>
