[resolved] Doesn't play nicely with plugins wanting to add extra options (7 posts)

    This looks like it has potential. However, it does not appear to be compatible with plugins that insert an extra column into the "Pages" display. I was using http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/simply-exclude/ which adds options there, but these no longer appear in the Advanced Page Manager display. I suppose you need to look at what those plugins are hooking into, and hook into that too to capture what they're doing.

    One other thing - with WP_DEBUG set to true in wp-config.php (recommended), APM is giving some output about use of uninitialised variables.

    Thank you. Both of you. Following your feedback, we are studying how to support custom columns. (We'll check also the WP_DEBUG thing.)

    We spent the week to study how to support extra columns in the APM Pages panel. We've looked at the WP core itself and to several plugins making use of those extra columns (as Simply Exclude or Yoast SEO for example). We found 2 things :

    • First, using the WP hook is very difficult as it expects to be on the original panel
    • Second, plugins insert themselves in many ways into the Pages panel (eg. bringing new scripts testing the current URL)

    So unfortunatly, we came to the conclusion that we won't support extra columns as it will introduce to much specific and unstable code in our plugin.
    However, we perfectly understand the importance of this feature for the users and the developpers.
    Here what we've decided at the moment :

    • We're going to give you the possibility to access to the WP original Pages panel in order to let you enjoy again the extra columns you need
    • In addition to that, we're going to add official hooks to let plugin authors adding extra columns in the APM panels

    We'll keep you posted when these features will be implemented.

    Best regards

    Hi, hooks to add extra columns are now available (since the 0.9 version). You can use following hooks to add extra columns : apm_manage_pages_columns, apm_manage_pages_custom_column and apm_load_wp_data.

    New hook apm_load_wp_data allows to preload and cache data for all pages at once (using WP cache functions).

    Hi there, first off, I really appreciate your work on this plugin -it looks fantastic. However, I cannot get it to work. I disabled the special columns from Yoast SEO, but I still have the same problem with getting the plugin to work. It simply shows a "working" loading page, but never loads anything. Could this be because I just updated to the latest version of WordPress?

    Thank you. I don't reproduce your issue with WP 3.5.1 and WordPress SEO Could you open a specific issue for your problem ? First thing to do is probably listing all your plugins in order to see if we can reproduce a bad interaction with one of them.
