Organizing Content

The primary purpose of OrganizeWP is to provide an interface for your site content that has context and makes content management more straightforward.

By default, WordPress will include Custom Post Types in the Admin Menu. This is fine to an extent, but also in the Admin Menu are entries to manage Users, Appearance, Plugins, Settings, and more! Not to mention all of the plugins that add top level Admin Menu entries as a form of advertising.

OrganizeWP aims to group all of your site content into a unified interface on a single screen.

OrganizeWP post type actions

At the top you’ll find a global search field that instantly searches all of the Post Types recognized by OrganizeWP.

Below that is a column of links that allow you to instantly toggle between those Post Types. For each Post Type you can quickly access all associated taxonomies and bulk add content.

To the right of the Post Type is a list of all entries for that post type. If the post type is not hierarchical, entries will be listed by their publish date in descending order. If the post type is hierarchical a drag-and-droppable, collapsible, tree view is provided.

By default this is the only information shown for entries of a Post Type. This is a stark difference when compared to the default list tables in the WordPress Admin, but that’s the point of OrganizeWP; to make the editing experience as streamlined and as fast as possible.

One of the goals of OrganizeWP is to facilitate customization of the editing experience based on the needs of the current site. Given that, OrganizeWP does have the capability of adding information columns for entries to make for easier scanning.

Finally, we have Groups and Smart Groups which act as manual and automated ‘buckets’ for entries designed to facilitate both organization of and quick access to content.
