I'm creating an options panel for a theme on my localhost that's stored within the options.php file. My options panel will have two main loops. The first is to list the different sections and the second will create those sections. I just wrote the first loop and it doesn't display anything upon running. The code for this loop with some surrounding html is:

<aside>
    <nav>
        <ul>
        <?php
        foreach ($options as $value){
            switch ( $value['type'] ){
                case 'section':
                    echo '<li><a>'.$value['name'].'</li></a>';
                    break;
            }
        }
        ?>
        </ul>
    </nav>
</aside>

I don't see anything wrong with this though. This brings me to believe that something is wrong with a different part of my code so here's the entire options.php file:

<?php

//theme vars
$themename = "Fuckin Round";
$shortname = "fuckinround";
$options = array();

function theme_options(){
    global $themename, $shortname, $options;

    $options = array (

        array("name" => "General Settings",
            "type" => "section"),
        array("type" => "open"),

        array("name" => "Type of Logo",
            "desc" => "Select your logo type ( Image or Text )",

I've read through this code multiple times and can't find anything that would cause the loop not to work properly. I'd appreciate it very much if you guys could give it a look and let me know if you find anything. Thanks in advance. Sorry about the immature theme name btw.

Your closing tags are juxtaposed here: echo '<li><a>'.$value['name'].'</li></a>'; but obviously that isn't the issue. I haven't been through all of your code, but have you debugged? What does var_dump($options) display if placed immediately inside foreach ($options as $value){? –  vancoder Jun 28 '13 at 17:00
    
When it's placed inside or outside the foreach nothing outputs so I must have done something wrong with declaring my options then. I just can't seem to find what I did wrong still. –  Connor Jun 28 '13 at 17:42

I don't see your theme_options function being called anywhere.

Ugh for whatever reason I thought I put in add_action('init', 'theme_options'); and kept missing it. Thank you. –  Connor Jun 28 '13 at 18:21
