If you are developing a WordPress plugin, one of the first things I would suggest is adding a “Settings” link directly on the plugins page. This makes it easier for users to quickly access the plugin’s options page without having to search through the admin menu.

It is pretty simple to do, and only takes a few lines of code.

Add the following to your plugin file, within a <php> tag:

// Add settings link on plugin page
function your_plugin_settings_link($links) { 
  $settings_link = '<a href="options-general.php?page=your_plugin.php">Settings</a>'; 
  array_unshift($links, $settings_link); 
  return $links; 
$plugin = plugin_basename(__FILE__); 
add_filter("plugin_action_links_$plugin", 'your_plugin_settings_link' );

Be sure to change the your_plugin.php to the actual filename of your plugin.
