I am using the Options Framework.

In my theme's options.php, I have the following code:

function optionsframework_options() {

    $options = array();

    $options[] = array(
        'name' => __('Footer Navigation', 'options_framework_theme'),
        'type' => 'heading');

    $options[] = array(
        'name' => __('Button 1 URL', 'options_framework_theme'),
        'desc' => __('Enter the URL clicking on the button takes you to.', 'options_framework_theme'),
        'id' => 'footer-nav1_URL',
        'std' => '',
        'type' => 'text');

    $options[] = array(
        'name' => __('Button 1 Text', 'options_framework_theme'),
        'desc' => __('Enter the text you see underneath the button.', 'options_framework_theme'),
        'id' => 'footer-nav1_text',
        'std' => '',
        'type' => 'text');

In my theme's footer.php, I have the following code:

<?php if (of_get_option('footer-nav1_URL', '') !== '') { ?>
    <a href="<?php echo of_get_option('footer-nav1_URL', '');?>">
        <span id="icon1" class="index2"></span>
        <span class="iconshadow index1"></span>
        <span class="name"><?php echo of_get_option('footer-nav1_text', '');?></span>
<?php }?>

Those options are not being output in the footer. The footer is working normally otherwise.

Other options called in front-page.php are working okay.

Why won't these options work?


I think the problem is that you are using uppercase letters in the options id:


Try instead:


In general you should avoid using uppercase letters in options names in WordPress.
