[Plugin: WordPress SEO by Yoast] title and desc display columns screen options (7 posts)

    I'd like to add SEO title and SEO desc columns to my all posts and all pages lists so that I can easily see them at a glance.

    Thanks for a great plugin.

    That's pretty hard to do in such a way that no-one goes mad... Do you have an idea of how to do this from an interface perspective?

    My idea would be to include a column like in this screen shot
    much like your robots meta plugin does a column.

    I don't think the whole desc needs to display but the first 40 characters or so would at least let me see whether or not a post or page has a desc.

    some of my sites don't have titles and descs and I'm going back through and correcting this. adding this functionality would assist greatly.

    Hmm and just a "checked" mark for both? Would that work?

    I think a check would serve the basic utilitarian function.

    I updated the link above to show what I see currently with a competing plugin. It shows the whole desc which I think is bulky since it pushes all my posts that much further apart.
    In the example shown, having title display "Deck Railing Designs for ..." and desc display "Consider many deck railing ..." would take up the minimal amount of space while still displaying useful and relevant info.

    Also, being able to sort by title and desc would be helpful.

    (Maybe you know how to enable a sort by categories while we're at it :)

    ((BTW, your plugin rocks. I migrated a client to it and was able to delete about 5 other plugins, mainly having to do with category archive pages and it saved me from having to set up other plugins. my only quibble, probably due to a lack of understanding, is that the sitemap is not 'sitemap.xml' and I'm using another plugin to make an image sitemap.))

    You don't need to make an image sitemap using another plugin, my plugin adds images to the XML sitemap already.
