Pages 'Home' Icon

    In the 'All Pages' admin view, sometimes it can be difficult to quickly identify the 'home' page if the title has been named something other than 'Home' for SEO or other reasons.

    Would it make sense to somehow highlight that page for easy/quick identification? Row background color change, icon, something? Surely needs to be something subtle, but effective.

    this should be pretty easy with a small plugin... may or may not be core territory. might write this up today: if so, will publish link to code here.

    please note, there may be a simpler way of doing this, but this definitely works. i provide it as-is; feel free to modify and make changes and expand as you see fit for your own personal needs. also, please be free to adjust and re-post your modifications.

    p.s. you can either save the code as a plugin, and upload to plugins directory, or add to your theme's functions.php.

  5. Looks great - I think the only comment would be to possibly have the option of placing the icon directly after (or before) the page title rather than in it's own column. Adding a new column might be annoying for some users since it only applies to 1 page.

    Thoughts?

    If All Pages is enhanced with this then I agree with kylewhenderson, however, one could always go to Settings >Reading to find out. Or consider haiving the first page shown in All Pages is the home (assuming of course that it is unlikely a child page is selected as home).

    Its a good idea, but it a pretty simple problem to overcome.

    This is a great idea although I'm not sure it causes too many problems with users?

  9. This has actually been addressed in the latest release with the "Front Page" and "Posts Page" labels beside their corresponding title in the main Page view. Doubt the change was due to my suggestion, but a welcome update nonetheless.

    It was and it wasn't :) We've all agreed we need to make things more obvious :D

    Thank you for the suggestion! You were one of many voices that helped it happen.
