WordPress – Plugin Screen Options

Video Tutorial

Script & Screenshots

In this video I’m going to show you how to edit your Plugins Screen Options.

The Screen Options pull down tab is located in the upper right corner.  These options allow the you to decide what fields or modules are displayed.  Your screen may have different options depending on what plugins or theme you have installed.  It contains check boxes to show and hide different sections.  It may also contain the option to choose the number of items to display.  The reason behind having screen options is to give the user, (you) as much control as possible.  I go into more detail of the plugins in other videos in this series.  In this video I’ll give you a brief description of the options that might show up on your Plugins page.  These options are very simple.

Click on the Screen Options button.

Here it allows you to show or hide the Description and you can choose how many plugins you want to be shown per page.  I changed mine to 999 so that all my plugins will appear on the same page.  If you change this option, you need to click Apply to save your changes.

That’s it for this video.  I’ll see you in the next video.
