Filter Page by Template


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.

Simple and effective

Discovered this plugin within the past few months and it is slowly but surely getting installed on almost all builds I manage.

Lots of little use cases for it, but I most often use it on builds where I’m the developer, but not the content author/manager. Also when taking over development of an existing build. Gives quick insight into how authors are using the site.

  • I can use it to quickly discover what templates are getting little to no use, so I can remove jank
  • I can use it to quickly get a sense what pages will be affected by my template edits

It’s one of those handy little tools that I don’t want to do without anymore. Useful for both devs and authors alike, especially on sites with lots of pages and templates.
