The codex has a function called get_user_option() but it requires me to pass the name of the option. Is there a wp function to retrieve all user options? I just need to see a list of all options set for a specific user. The only other similar function I found is get_alloptions() but that has been deprecated.

You will get all the meta for the user by using get_user_meta function

$all_meta_for_user = get_user_meta( [user ID] );
echo "<pre>";
print_r( $all_meta_for_user );
  • Adding a echo "<pre">; before the print_r() can improve readability. :) Jun 18, 2015 at 13:55
  • Thanks. I failed to realize that get_user_meta would retrieve all options.
