How to Add Plugin Settings Link to Plugins List Table

Snippets by IsItWP

Are you looking for a way to add plugin settings link to plugins list table? While there’s probably a plugin for this, we have created a quick code snippet that you can use to add plugin settings link to plugins list table.

When building a plugin that has its own settings page, it’s often handy to create a link to the settings page straight from the ‘Plugins’ page in the dashboard. This saves users the time it takes to find where exactly your plugin appears in the admin menu.

Instructions:

All you have to do is add this code to your theme’s functions.php file or in a site-specific plugin:

function plugin_add_settings_link( $links ) {
    $settings_link = '<a href="options-general.php?page=plugin_name">' . __( 'Settings' ) . '</a>';
    array_push( $links, $settings_link );
  	return $links;
}
$plugin = plugin_basename( __FILE__ );
add_filter( "plugin_action_links_$plugin", 'plugin_add_settings_link' );
