If you want to save some options(settings) from wordpress
admin side setting page to make available those options
for your plugin then you are at the right place.At first add
menu page this way -

add_action( 'admin_menu', 'plugin_settings' );

function plugin_settings() {  
   add_menu_page('plugin settings', 'my plugin', 'administrator', 'plugin_settings', 'display_settings');

function display_settings()
 if (!current_user_can( 'manage_options' ) )  {
    wp_die( __(
     'You do not have sufficient permissions to access this page.'
    ) );
 $options_follow = get_option('ms_fbwall_plugin_follow_settings');    
 if((isset($_REQUEST["msfb_active_tab"]))&&($_REQUEST["msfb_active_tab"] == "4"))
       if((isset($_REQUEST["msfb_follow_setting"]))&&($_REQUEST["msfb_follow_setting"]=="Y")) {
       $msfb_followwidth=$_REQUEST["msfb_followwidth"]; $options_follow['msfb_followwidth']= $msfb_followwidth;
       $msfb_followid=$_REQUEST["msfb_followid"]; $options_follow['msfb_followid']= $msfb_followid;       
       update_option( 'ms_fbwall_plugin_follow_settings', $options_follow );
 $msfb_followwidth= ($options_follow['msfb_followwidth'] != '') ? $options_follow['msfb_followwidth'] : '480';
 $msfb_followid= ($options_follow['msfb_followid'] != '') ? $options_follow['msfb_followid'] : 'mridulcs';
 <form method="post" name="social_options" action="" class="form-horizontal">  
      <legend>follow button settings</legend>
      <div class="control-group">  
        <label class="control-label" for="msfb_followid">follow button id</label>  
        <div class="controls">  
        <input type="text" class="input-xlarge" name="msfb_followid" value="<?php echo esc_attr_e($msfb_followid); ?>" id="msfb_followid" />
      <div class="control-group">  
        <label class="control-label" for="msfb_followwidth">follow button width</label>  
        <div class="controls">  
        <input type="text" class="input-xlarge" name="msfb_followwidth" value="<?php echo esc_attr_e($msfb_followwidth); ?>" id="msfb_followwidth" />
      </div>  <br/>                                                                                              
      <div class="form-actions">
       <input type="hidden" name="msfb_active_tab" value="4" />    
       <input type="hidden" name="msfb_follow_setting" value="Y" />                                                                                            
        <input type="submit" name="submit" class="btn btn-primary" value="Update"/>    
code details: in the above code summarization, it's apparently clear that
at first i get saved option array at $options_follow, then i check if the
options form(shown below) is submitted,if yes i again update options by
update_option. Proceeding further along the codes, i populated form values
with the saved option values.
