[Wishlist] Reorganise the "Your drafts" list (3 posts)

    I have a few drafts and plan to add a few more. All draft titles are separated by commas which crowds the list.
    Here is my suggestion: Make a bulleted list with one draft title per item. Show only the 5 recently added/modified drafts and a link to view "All drafts" (for people with 10, 20 or more drafts).

    We've been talking about this or making a Manage -> Drafts wp-admin page in one of the mailing lists on and off.

    At this stage, one will need to modify edit.php in the wp-admin directory to get a handle on an abundance of drafts.

    After 2.1 I decided to whip up a DIY solution and now have my drafts sorted into three areas by category: 1) reviews, which are the bulk of my drafts, 2) everything else, and 3) archive, which contains all the leftovers I don't want cluttering up my manage posts page. Still, I like having the flexibility to get at them easily, so all posts in the "archive" section are merely invisible thanks to some very basic show/hide javascript coding... each list is sorted by post title instead of date, which also helps me find stuff.

    All this is rather easy to do when you set your mind to it... simply copying the existing "getdrafts" functions and customizing them to your liking should serve to temporarily take care of an unruly legion of drafts, as I was previously plagued with:

    But yeah, some core support for working with lots of drafts would be optimal.
