There might be some value in my sloppy keyboarding skills beyond humorous typos and misplaced punctuation that drives Sandy Brown Jensen batty. I just mistyped a WordPress URL and cracked a lid on something.
I even forget know why I was looking at the WordPress Settings on a project site, maybe I was checking something I was looking into coding. But anyhow, I typed a URL that never appears via any link/button on the wordpress dashboard. You can do the same on your own site, just append to your blog URL wp-admin/options.php and rather than the usual set of things neatly displayed in a normal Settings screen, you can see (and possibly dangerously edit) ANY option ever set on your site
Mine scrolls down for like 90 feet.
I even found settings for the PodPress plugin which I stopped using in 2007:
This has no specific use I recommend, I am just a little tickled at finding something that’s like a backdoor into the wizard’s room. There is a function you can use if coding in WordPress.
Just for fun, I was curious if I used this URL to see what happens on my laboratory site on WordPress.com
And this makes me smile because someone put a bit of humor into an error message. Reason number 466 why I love WordPress.
