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 it’s 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.
It is useful to see and edit all WordPress settings in one place.
WordPress All Settings Plugin
To make it easier, you can simply install a WordPress plugin to display Settings > All Settings.
There are several plugins available for this but the one I would recommend is Show Al Settings in Menu.
