function wpds_plugin_links($links, $file) {
               $base = plugin_basename(__FILE__);
               if ($file == $base) {
                       $links[] = '<a href="admin.php?page=plugin_settings">' . __('Settings') . '</a>';
                       $links[] = '<a href="">' . __('Documentation') . '</a>';
                       $links[] = '<a href="">' . __('Report Bug') . '</a>';
               return $links;

function wpds_plugin_link_actions( $links ) {
	return array_merge(array('settings' => '<a href="admin.php?page=plugin_settings">' . __( 'Settings', 'domain' ) . '</a>'), $links);
