Where did the screen options menu go? I can't seem to find it anywhere in the new admin interface.

I'm using 3.3-beta1

It's under the Help tab.

Replying to SergeyBiryukov:

It's under the Help tab.

Oh. But it's not a "help" topic, it's a primary function on the page. Without it, there are a lot of options that can't be accessed.

Maybe this is a discussion for a different ticket, but if the "help" menu item isn't dedicated to "help" items, of which there appear to be no actual help items, then shouldn't it be renamed?

I’m slightly confused by this too. Settings and help are two very different things. Now it looks like they are put together just to save space.

Agreed with dangayle and toscho. Screen options aren't remotely related to help.

This change was made as part of #18197 by the way.

+1. I'm all for consolidating these options into a tab-able interface, but the "Help" label needs to change to something more general.

Ryan, any hint what was invalid with dangayle’s issue?

The question of where it went was answered.

There are already tickets and threads debating the relocation of screen options.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
