Support » Plugins » My First Plugin With Options Page

  • I’m creating my first plugin and creating an admin options page. It almost works, or should I say, it did on my development site.

    I copied the code to my live site, and only part of it works.

    Any ideas why it is not doing the select properly, or updating all of the options instead of just the last?

    add_option("n1t1", 'Enter your first testimonial', '', 'no');
    add_option("n1t2", 'Enter your second testimonial', '', 'no');

  • Note: I was wrong in my assessment of my test site. I was trying to figure out what changed when I discovered the test site is also only saving one option.

    So, correct question is, what did I do wrong, and how can I fix it?
