Filter Page by Template

Description

If your WordPress website has hundreds of pages and your theme has many page templates then sometimes you want to see the pages those are using a specific template. But by default there is no way in WordPress admin to search posts or pages associate with a template. “Filter Page by Template” plugin helps you to do this. It adds a dropdown list of page template above the post/page list. You can filter posts/pages by selecting a template from the dropdown. Also you can filter and see pages those are using missing templates. There is a new column Template in page list table. This Template column shows the name of page template that is being used for a particular page. If a template file is not exist then that will be shown in red color. On Template column you will see the template’s display name. To see the php file name mouse over on the template name.

Using this plugin you can do :

  • Filter page list according to page template
  • See which page is using which template
  • See which page template is being used by which pages
  • See which pages are using missing templates
  • Know the PHP file name of templates

I'm not sure why WordPress doesn't offer this as a built-in feature, but this plugin gets the job done!

I work as a web developer, creating web sites for various clients. Sometimes the sites are quite complicated, with several templates and custom post types, and hundreds of posts/pages. Especially once clients have created new content, it is incredibly helpful to be able to track down all instances of a template before editing it. That way I can make sure my changes aren't going to mess up existing content!
