I have come across a theme that has a way of having multiple options in the option_value field.For instance,in the theme,one can perform the Create,Read,Uodate and Delete functionalities on such fields as

-image url

-link url


The wp_options has the following fields:

option_id / blog_id / option_name / option_value / autoload

How is this being done?.

I found a way to do that. This is how to Consolidate Options with Arrays described in this article
