Cobwebs in the WordPress admin
🎃 Make it easier to access and sort data in the WordPress admin.

In this series, Lee looks at a range of WordPress tools that can add value to both the development process and client interactions. For each episode, Lee will define a problem, discuss his agency’s solution, and share a use case.

The problem

Post lists for post types in WordPress are very basic, and in order to add all the custom fields you’ve created, you have to roll up your sleeves and get coding.

The solution

We use admin columns pro to add columns, filtering, inline editing, and export features. This allows our clients access to their data in a meaningful way that they can interact with.

Use cases

  • We use this on a multisite network to ensure all sites have the same column interfaces.
  • We use this for agenda management for inline editing of times.
