[resolved] Own options page (6 posts)

    The more options the greater the plugin. Meanwhile, the number of options grew twice from v1.0 to v1.1.2.

    It would be more useful to find them in an own options page instead at the end of the general settings page.

    i agree, you can reuse a WordPress options page if you add 1 or 2 fields related to one of the present ones, but avoid to add all yours.
    Please, create a page thank you.

    At this time I have no plans to add a separate options page.

    I thought one of the cool things about plugin was placement :) Is a "core" plugin in its own little way = make sense to put in general settings.

    Hide/Show toggle thingy could be compromise.

    That's what I'm kicking around right now: a show/hide toggle for "advanced" options.

    Adding my appreciation for the plugin - it does what it is supposed to do, and no extra clutter.

    A few thoughts on the UI (in Settings>General)

    1. I, along with other posters, think a separate page would be useful. My feeling is that it would be easier for a user to locate the plugin settings. It wouldn't need any more info than what is currently in the Settings>General area. You could locate it in either Settings, Plugins, or possibly Tools.

    2. When selecting 'No updates', the 'Advanced' option 'grays out'. This is confusing (at first, I thought I could not perform settings). Suggest that this NOT be grayed out at any time.

    3. 'Advanced' again: suggest you leave 'Advanced' Visible at all times. It is not a large section, and always displaying it reminds the user of those options.

    Great work - I can't imagine running any client 'production' sites without disabling automatic updating.
