Allow plugins to specify how their settings page looks using the Settings API
|Reported by:||ptahdunbar||Owned by:|
The settings API is great, but it would be even greater if the API gave plugins the ability to control how their settings are displayed on their pages instead of them being shoehorned into a table.
To fix this, we'll need to patch the following two functions:
Attached is a simple patch that allows plugins to filter the default display of sections and fields on a per page basis. It does this by adding a filter which specifies a callback function to handle the display of each section and field.
I'd love to get some feedback on this. I believe this enhancement would greatly improve the adoption rate of the settings API in plugins as it removes the contrains on how their settings get displayed thus making it more useable for complex/custom admin pages.
