Filter Page by Template

Description

If your WordPress website has hundreds of pages and your theme has many page templates then sometimes you want to see the pages that are using a specific template. But by default, there is no way in WordPress admin to search posts or pages associated with a template. “Filter Page by Template” plugin helps you to do this. It adds a dropdown list of page templates above the post/page list. You can filter posts/pages by selecting a template from the dropdown. Also, you can filter and see pages that are using missing templates. There is a new column Template in the page list table. This Template column shows the name of the page template that is being used for a particular page. If a template file is not exist then that will be shown in red color. On the Template column you will see the template’s display name. To see the php file name mouse over on the template name.

Using this plugin you can do:

  • Filter page list according to page template.
  • See which page is using which template.
  • See which page template is being used by which pages.
  • See which pages are using missing templates.
  • Know the PHP file name of templates.
  • You can do the same things above for posts and any custom post-type posts.

I have a website where I have “internal” sites, like multisite except not. So all of my multiple personality and professional sites redirect to their own internal page of my new master project website. Why? Well, it gives me just one place to work, and all of my licensed plugins are licensed for a single site. I just retired with a single uber-project. I need time to do life stuff and it is just much easier to have a single “real” website. This plugin makes it easy to focus on an internal site as each has their own set of templates, letting each feel like their own site.
