Looking to update one of my plugins and need some advice. I wrote a
little plugin last year Simply Exclude http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/simply-exclude/
This plugin has sort of a sub-menu. So when you click on Settings ->
Simply Exclude there is a nav bar across the top containing sub
options: "Manage Categories", "Manage Tags", "Manage Authors" and
The changes I'm making are mostly cosmetic. Just trying to update the
sub-menu to be styled for wp 2.7. I'm looking this morning in the
Codex for guidelines for plugin authors on styling such a sub-menu.
Meaning I'd like to use some standard HTML code and let the default
admin stylesheet take over. Much like when adding a table and using
the default class="widefat". I see lots of information on coding
plugins or course but very little (mostly outdated) information on
building the plugin admin interface.
So looking for suggestions from the group or better if anyone has seen
something like this in another plugin that would be great. and of
course if there is a better suggestion for presenting sub-options to
the user I'm open to that suggestion as well.
