    UPDATED. MADE A MISTAKE. PLEASE SEE MY REPLY BELOW BEFORE RESPONDING. THANKS.

    Hi there,
    I notice that when I click the Screen Options button whilst viewing the list of Pages or Posts on my site, that very few options display. I recalled there used to be many more than I see. I looked this up in the WordPress documentation and see that there should be more. Here: http://en.support.wordpress.com/screen-options/

    For instance, it says I should see the following options for:

    • Post – Post Tags, Categories, Excerpt, Send Trackbacks, Discussion, Comments, Post Slug, Post Author, Post Revisions
    • Page – Attributes, Discussion, Page Slug, Page Author, Page Revisions

    What I get is this:

    • Post – Author, Categories, Tags, Comments, Date
    • Page – Author, Comments, Date

    I thought perhaps it was my admin theme (Fluency Admin) but when I turn that off it does not resolve the issue.

    Is this normal or is my site doing something odd?
    I would like to get the display of this pertinent info back.
    Any help greatly appreciated.

    With thanks,

    Jonathan

    Hmmm....
    I have reread that support page, and realised I misunderstood it. I confused the info it gave on Modules that can be hidden and columns that can be hidden. Correct?

    So... well, that's a bit of a bummer as it means there is nothing to fix and make it the way I want!!

    I have one question... is there a plugin that will add more columns?
    Specifically, I want a column that will show me the slug because I am currently fine tuning the slugs and I have having to open every post and page one-by-one in order to see what fine tuning they require, if any.

    Much thanks,

    Jonathan

    The slug (renamed permalink) is immediately below your Post/Page title.
