Screen Option Settings in WordPress


Written by tim on October 2, 2013

What are WordPress Screen Options?

In WordPress once you log into your dashboard of your site you will see a dark menu bar at the top of the screen.  Just below this bar on the right hand side you will see a grey tab with the title of “Screen Options” with a small grey drop down arrow.

By clicking the Screen Options Tab you can set check boxes for two types of settings that impact your use of the dashboard.  These two categories of the Screen Options settings are “Show on Screen” and “Screen layout”.

*Please note your Screen Options for the Show on Screen section is based on what modules you have installed and may look slightly different then the example below.

By default certain modules are in the Show on Screen section are unchecked or hidden such as Posts.  In order to enable Posts you simply check the box by the name and it will be shown on your dashboard.

These guys are amazing! Gabe knew exactly where to go in the code and want to fix and had all our issues repaired in minutes! As a previous owner of a software company I would give them the highest rating possible!

Had some updating issues with our website and Gabe provided an expedited response to our situation so we could keep the site up and running smoothly. Additionally, he tweaked a few things he noticed weren't correct so the site would have better SEO. Thanks so much!

Gabe at Gecko helped me not only with my business site, but also with my business in general, helping me imagine and re-imagine the user-experience. He sat with me for an hour, two different times, as I talked through what I wanted my site to be capable of, and then pointed me in a direction of how to make it happen. I am not entirely tech-savvy, and he gave me the tools I needed to take the next steps...and I always know I can call on Gecko if I get stuck or need a second look at what I've created. I highly recommend Gecko!
