Hidden Settings Panel in WordPress


WordPress has settings throughout the admin dashboard but not all are visible.

Visible WordPress Settings

WordPress itself has settings in various places but mainly under the Settings menu and its submenus.

Then the plugins and the theme you have installed will have their own settings in their respective sections. Some of the plugin or theme settings may not be visible though since they may store values and configurations which are internal.

Hidden WordPress Options/Settings Panel

Not all settings are displayed to you in the dashboard and some may be hard to find specifically. Many of them are internal as WordPress itself, plugins and theme stores certain settings on your WordPress website.

There is a hidden settings panel where you can see all WordPress options. This hidden settings panel is called “All Settings” and contains all the settings taken from the wp_options database table. It includes everything from cron jobs, transient cache, WordPress settings, plugin settings, theme settings, rewrite rules, etc.

To see this hidden options panel, go to:



Change out “domain.com” to your own domain accordingly in the URL above.
