where do the option group name stored in database .

The option group (1st param to register_setting()) is not stored anywhere. The only use for option groups is to output a couple of hidden fields and a nonce, via a call to settings_fields().


The options which you store by using the function register_setting is saved in table wp_options.

  • I Had searched the Wp_options but found nothing is does it create a column

Look for the add_setting('Y-sidebar-options'…); call. Settings go into the wp_options table and can be either under a field by it's own name or else a theme_mod (default).
