What is wrong wiht my code????

<?php

function my_plugin_menu() {

// Page Title: My Plugin Settings Page
// Menu Title: My Plugin
// Slug: Same as menu name, but with hyphens instead of spaces
// Make sure user has ability to manage plugin options
// my_plugin_options_page() is the function for what displays on the options page
add_options_page(
'My Plugin Settings Page',
'My Plugin',
'my-plugin',
'manage_options',
'my_plugin_options_page'
)

} add_action('admin_menu', 'my_plugin_options_page');

add_options_page( $page_title, $menu_title, $capability, $menu_slug, $function);

"manage_options" should be third before menu_slug

Also, are you sure about cuttent_user_can ? The double t? ;-)
