Thank you so much 🙏🏼💜 This plugin is very much needed. I can’t believe when I want to change author on a post I have to scroll to endless 500+ list of users. Just what I needed straight and simple.

This plugin is very useful…I have developed when you have multiple categories or tags. While filtering a post it is really time-consuming with simple select box. So the solution to this is Select2 box. You can see example of Select2 here.
