had this idea a while ago but was reminded by this post

what it does

this plugin lets you browse your articles/images/files in admin backend by dropdowns of categories/sections applicable to that area…sort of(see caveats).

basically it just lists your relevant categories(and section for articles) and when you press go, it will use the built-in search for that particular category/section. saves you time from manually searching for what you need as well as gives you a reference in case you forget a certain category/section name.


the obvious problem with this is if you have two article categories that go by the names “test” and “test2”, then selecting “test” will also bring up articles in the “test2” category (as that is how the search function would pull up as well).

but hey better than nothing!

Hey Steve, maybe I’m a little OT but… The admin theme shwon in the picture is beautiful. Do you know if it is possibile to download it somewhere?

yep, you can download the theme from my site here


hi steve, is your admin theme still available for download?? can’t find it on your website.


Hi Steve, up to the version 4.3 the plugin worked well, but in Textpattern 4.4.1 is not working. Any idea for help? Maybe a new version of the plugin?

sorry i have no idea. i haven’t used textpattern in a long time now.
