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.

Gecko brings an immense amount of talent and expertise to any project, adding value and saving us time at every step of the process. We've been blown away by their balance of creative capability (across strategy, ideation, design and execution) with impeccable execution, on time and on budget every time. Can't recommend them highly enough.

Gecko exceeded our expectations in every way with their efficiency, creativity and professionalism...our non-profit hasn't had a fully functional site that we are proud of in years, and not only did Gabe, Grace & the staff at Gecko completely turn this around, they helped us learn along the way. Thank you!
