Filter Admin Published Default

Description

Enables all public post types (posts, pages, etc) in wp-admin to show the Published filter by default. This came out of a need as some clients of mine had a lot of pre-scheduled posts so a LOT of drafts are up top and I got tired of the extra click to filter by published. I tweeted out for ideas and @Norcross answered and quickly whipped up this; which we turned into a plugin for public release and here you go!

Usage

Once activated you don’t need to do anything.

Reviews

Just what I needed

Perfect, and works. I have a so many “drafts” on every site I do, so it’s nice not to have to “turn them off” each time. Exactly what I needed.
