I have recently been adding theme options to a WordPress theme. It didn’t take long for me to get confused about the three main WordPress functions for adding menu options in the admin of WordPress: add_options_page(), add_menu_page(), and add_submenu_page().
The basic gist is this:
- add_options_page puts a menu/link in the “Settings” menu
- add_menu_page puts a menu/link at the same level as “Dashboard”, “Posts”, “Media”, etc.
- add_submenu_page puts a menu/link as a child underneath “Dashboard”, “Posts”, “Media”, etc.
I hope this helps ease some confusion.
