WordPress Admin Notepad is a plugin for wordpress 3.0+ that allows selected user group to view or edit notes as long as they are logged into admin panel.
WordPress Admin Notepad automatically creates a show/hide notepad toggle at top right corner (beside log out link) so that users can access their notes at anywhere.
WordPress Admin Notepad supports ONLY WordPress 3.0 and above, that is after wordpress added Roles & Capability.

This happened to me without reason and I haven’t figure out why. However the fix is here. Use the Emergency Rescue feature at the plugin option page. It will delete the notes’ option row from your wordpress database like a fresh install.
