Filters – An Enhanced UI for Post management


This plugin lets you use an enhanced UI for your post types search/filtering to really clean up the experience.

It is pretty basic right now, there are no options and there may be a few bugs as it’s tested across more environments.


  • An enhanced UI for search / filtering that's tucked away under a pop-up to do advanced filtering
  • The advanced filtering pop-up

Makes it easy to search/filter posts (including custom post types). Something like this should be part of the WordPress core. I hope this plug-in will be developed further...
