I've created my own admin page in wp-admin folder using add_theme_page() function. How to pass variables from there to my blog? I mean what's the easiest way without arrays etc.

I've tried using "globals" but failed.

Thanks a lot.

    Your question is very vague. If you're trying to implement theme settings check out get_option / update_option Jan 4, 2011 at 2:17

    Can you please give examples and use-cases for passing variables? As @Ambitious Amoeba said, your question is too vague to get a reasonable answer. Jan 4, 2011 at 2:41

Read the codex page on creating options pages, and let us know if you run into any specific issues. It has a complete copy/paste example you can monkey with.

If you're trying to avoid learning WordPress' options mechanisms in favor of a more generic custom php solution, I understand where you're coming from, but recommend learning to do it the right way. It'll be a couple hours investment, but it'll pay off over time. For reals.
