WordPress How to Build a WordPress Plugin Building a WordPress Plugin Settings Page Admin Area Forms in WordPress

After the if statement, require a file named "page-wrapper.php", located inside of the includes folder

Totally lost on what this question requires

plugin.php
<?php

function my_plugin_options_page() {

    if (!current_user_can('manage_options')) {
        wp_die('You do not have sufficient permissions to access this page.');
    }
 if (!current_user_can('manage_options')) { wp_die('You do not have sufficient permissions to access this page.'); } // the absence of this closing tag is causing the problems! if( isset( $POST['my_plugin_hidden_field']) ) { $my_plugin_username = esc_html( $_POST['myplugin_username'] ); require( 'includes/page-wrapper.php' ); }





?>

Hi Tinashe,

<?php

function my_plugin_options_page() {

    if (!current_user_can('manage_options')) {
        wp_die('You do not have sufficient permissions to access this page.');
    }
    require('includes/page-wrapper.php');
}

?>

Looked like there was some additional code in your example but I believe this is what you are looking for :)

Basically what they are asking you to is "after the check has happened (to see if they are actually allowed to access this page) add the file we are going to use to display what they are allowed to see" :)

Cheers Liam
