Ideas is an extremely simple way to manage ideas in your WordPress admin.
I used to just use WordPress’ default “Draft” feature to manage post ideas, plugin ideas, etc. But I was always afraid I’d accidenally publish a draft, and the drafts are included right within the rest of the posts.
It’s a messy solution, and far from ideal.
“Ideas” is a step in the right direction, a super simple post type I’ve been using for a while to keep my ideas separate from my content and media.
I made a plugin for myself so I didn’t have to re-write the post type every time I set up a new site, and also so that my Ideas post type was theme-agnostic.
This is that plugin, and I’ve got lots of plans to make it better!
Extract the zip file and upload the contents to the
wp-content/plugins/ directory of your WordPress installation, and then activate the plugin from plugins page.
- I wish the most recent ideas would display first, not the oldest ones.
Just click the “Date” column header to change the order of the ideas based on time.
- Are the ideas public?
The ideas you create will only be visible in your WordPress admin, unless you specifically edit plugin code or add a query somewhere for the “ideas” post type.
- Can it do [insert feature name here]?
Ideas is meant to be very, very simple, so there aren’t many features / capabilities. It’s just a custom post type I use on almost every WordPress site of mine.
- Why isn’t it working?
trueand see what errors pop up. If that doesn’t help, see the plugin info for how to get support.
