Improve Your Content Management Efficiency In WordPress With One Simple Trick

By: ,

If you’re responsible for managing content inside a WordPress platform, you know that mass editing pages or posts isn’t always easy due to those admin panels only listing 20 items before the pagination kicks in (the breaking point for the next/prev links). But did you know it only takes three clicks to change that value to whatever you need?

Step 1
1) Select the “Screen Options” tab located in the top, right-hand corner of the admin panel.
Steps 2 & 3
2) Enter the higher value.
3) Select the “Apply” button and the page will automatically reload with the settings.

Tip: don’t go hog wild; the higher the number, the more server resources you’ll consume. A safe range is anywhere from 50-100 but you can go to a much higher value for a one-off mass edit task so long as you remember to reset the value lower afterward.

This should help your regular content management tasks by providing a more comprehensive bird’s eye view along with making it much easier to apply mass edits.

About Drew McManus

In addition to my consulting business, I'm also the Principal of Venture Industries Online but don’t let that title fool you into thinking I'm just a tech geek. I bring 20+ years of global broad-based arts consulting experience to the table to help clients break the cycle of choosing one-size-fits-none solutions and instead, deliver options allowing them to get ahead of the tech curve instead of trying to catch up by going slower.

With the vision of legacy support strategy and the delights of creative insights, my mission is to deliver a sophisticated next generation technology designed especially for the field of performing arts. The first step in that journey began in 2010 when The Venture Platform was released, a purpose-designed managed website development solution designed especially for arts organizations and artists.

For fun, I write a daily blog about the orchestra business, provide a platform for arts insiders to speak their mind, lead a team of intrepid arts pros to hack the arts, lead an arts business incubator, and love a good coffee drink.
