Reveal IDs

Mô tả

With WordPress 2.5 being released, the IDs on all admin pages have been removed as it is. Propably due to the fact that the common user dont need them. However, for advanced WordPress Users/ developers those IDs were quite interesting for some plugins or template tags.

What this plugin does is to reveal most removed entry IDs on admin pages, showing the entry IDs, as it was in versions prior to 2.5


  • Sortable columns for WP 3.1 or higher

Thank you for this plugin! Having to do quite a bit of custom code pointing at specific pages via id, it is nice to have my code in one browser window, with pages from WP Dashboard in another, so I can quickly ensure my IDs are correct! Thank you!

I am using WP Show Post which allows you a lot of control using post id's. This plugin makes life easy, adds post id to the posts lists. One of life's essential backend plugins.
