I have been searching high and low and cannot seem to find a plugin/implementation for wordpress which allows for site wide values to be set and used (in places such as header/footer).

Any help much appreciated


Sorry I might not have been clear enough. What I am wanting to do is have fields which can be set in the backend and displayed site wide such as a phone number in the footer. Thanks

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

Finding a plugin is not a programming question, off topic for this site. wordpress.stackexchange.com – Dan Grossman Feb 11 '11 at 15:29
You can use text widgets for this, which would be both in one: You enter the text into the widget on your widgets screen in the backend and it will be displayed where you placed it. Is that an option for you? – hakre Feb 13 '11 at 10:59

Just throw the values in your theme's functions.php file and use them in your other templates. This is a little too simple to warrant writing a plugin.
