I'm trying to set up theme options so they save with AJAX, I found this tutorial http://return-true.com/2010/01/using-ajax-in-your-wordpress-theme-admin/
$options = get_option('test_theme');
but I don't understand what that is returning. it calls this right before the form, presumably to loop through the options? the data is actually getting saved, it's just not being represented when the page is refreshed.
