Select and Edit

Description

Choose the Post or Page to edit next with less clicks & page loads–exactly 1 click and 1 page load, actually!

The Select and Edit lists appears above the Publish box, expanding on mouse hover to display the list of Posts and Pages in your WordPress Site.

Select and Edit also:

  • Displays a count of both the number of Posts and number of Pages in its “resting” state.
  • Displays the Publish Status ahead of the Title, i.e. [draft], [private], if NOT Publicly published.

Brief History

Select and Edit was created to combine the code of two plugins I developed in 2012, Jump to – Post Edit and Jump to – Page Edit, under the WP user alias of linkedbinary900. Select and Edit comes closer to being the plugin I envisioned then, and it will continue to be improved upon as additional features are explored and adopted.

To move on to the next page, simply select its corresponding link in the Select and Edit list on the right-hand side of the Edit screen.

Parent Plugin Changelogs

‘Jump to – Post Edit’ Changelog

  • 02/12/2013: Stable with WordPress v 3.5.1
  • 01/25/2012: Version 1.0.5 – Changed a bit in the CSS file, jump-to-post-edit.css which will allow for a scrolling post-list, and moves the list out of the way a bit from the UPDATE button in the post-edit screen.
  • 12/19/2012: Version 1.0.4 – Fixed conditional php statement in jump-to-post-edit.php for post_type so that this feature only appears on your Edit Post screen.
  • 12/19/2012: Version 1.0.3 – Added condition to jump-to-post-edit.php for post_type so that this feature only appears on your Edit Post screen.
  • 12/18/2012: Version 1.0.2 – Instead of creating a new custom meta box to perform this action, this plugin now adds a section to the “Publish” area of the “Edit Post” screen. ~ This update fixes the problems occurring with use of the previous versions (custom meta data and permalink information, etc. is now read/write accessible again) ~ There is now a Stylesheet file included with this plugin, jump-to-post-edit.css. Feel free to customize the color-scheme, etc. to your liking!
  • 11/28/2012: Version 1.0.1 – Updated plugin to fix problems occurring upon Posts being saved. ~ Custom Meta info was being altered. ~ My apologies. ~ “Jump to – Post Edit” will use a Custom Meta Field, jump_to_post_edit. ~ Because the selection of an option from the “Jump to – Post Edit” list does not actually require data to be saved to the current Post, the value of the Custom Meta Key ‘jump_to_post_edit’ does not need to be altered.
