Admin Posts List Tag Filter


Ever wonder why you can filter your posts in the admin screen by date and category but not tags?

Well I don’t know why it’s not include by default, but you can now add it with this simple plugin. Just install and active and a drop down will appear beside the categories filter and you can filter by tag to your hearts content!

This code is released under the GPL v2, see license.txt for details.


  • None at this time!


  • Post list without tag filter.
  • Post list with tag filter.


  1. Extract the archive file into your plugins directory in the admin-posts-list-tag-filter folder.
  2. Activate the plugin in the Plugin options.
  3. Done!


Are there any options for this plugin

No, everything is taken care of automatically. If you have custom post types that don’t support tags, or have enabled tags on post types that by default don’t support them (like pages), the plugin automatically detects this and acts accordingly.

Been looking for a plugin that does exactly this for the last 30 minutes. I’ve just used this on a site with almost 40k tags and 44k posts and works great for me, took about 4 seconds to render the dropdown but that’s to be expected with so many tags (and yes, you can type to search like any other drop down input)

The plugin does exactly what it says. Adds a select field dropdown to the post list that let’s you filter the posts or cpts by post_tag. 👍

It’s working perfectly fine for me on WordPress 6.4.2. Simple but super useful plugin!
