Can’t see ANY plugin options

  • I wonder what’s the problem, I can’t see any options in the OPTIONS page, other than the default ones. No plugin shows any options. IT’s frustrating to add/try plugins when I can’t see their options…

  • What account are you logged in with, and what is its user level. I believe a user account must be level 8 or above for the Plugins admin page to become available.

    Not all plugins have options. In fact, most don’t.

    I login in as admin, level 10, and at least those plugins that I have tried claims to have options page, and spam karma should at least? still nothing.

    This might be the result of a bug, which was fixed here:


    Can anyone tell me any simple plugins which have options? I have never seen any in my options pane, but I would like to rewrite a not-so-pluginnish plugin (it breaks the page when deactivated) into a genuine plugin, but I want to find out how to give it options. So a simple plugin with options as an example would be helpful.

    Okay, I tried with unmodified strayhorn install to another site, and it showed those plugin-options. Damn, I need to log my hacks from now on.. especially if I am going to start all over with a clean install on my main blog…. bugger..

    I am having this same problem and I am running WP 1.5.2. The two plugins whose options I can’t see are Subscribe2 and WP-ContactForm. I have used them successfully elsewhere. I am a level 8 user on this blog.

    Any clues?

    In case anyone’s curious, my problem was caused by user-level permissions. Both plug-ins wanted me to be at least a level 9, so I modified the code to allow me to use them as an 8 (at the suggestion of plugin author Skippy).

    I am struggling with the same problem, trying to get Popup Image Gallery working.
    I can see activated but the features that should appear in the ‘Manage’ section of the admin pane are not showing.
    I am logon as administrator and run WP 1.5.2 that I recently updated.
    I tried other plugin and that’s the same…
    Any help would be really appreciate!
