 When I click yes to the confirmation, it just redirects me to a blank page
 with "wp-admin/admin.php" in the URL. Going back to the WPG2 plugin page
 indeed shows that nothing was actually saved or done.

 I've tried adding a nonce action to the urls using wp_nonce_url() and
 adding that nonce action to the call to check_admin_referer() but I still
 get the confirmation page. There is a _wpnonce= in the URL though.
