Better Post Management
Man, does Manage –> Posts suck or what? You’ve got a search box [which is nice], and a month-by-month listing, and … that’s it. This is disappointing! I was hoping WP2.0 would bring some love to the Manage Posts page, but unfortunately, it didn’t.
How could this be better?
- Filtering by categories. If you’re like me, you stick posts you imported into their own category, then filter away as you have time. There’s no way to do filter by category with WP out-of-the-box.
- Filtering by authors. Not all WP installs are single-author Weblogs! Perversely, you can filter by author by going to Users –> Authors & Users and clicking on the post count of any user, but … that’s convoluted.
- Filtering by most-recently-commented. If someone dredges up an old post and gives you some feedback on it—feedback you have to act on—you have to hope that you have email notification running or are grabbing your comment feed, because that’s the only way you’re going to be able to start digging up the entry.
