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 those are using a specific template. But by default there is no way in WordPress admin to search posts or pages associate with a template. โ€œFilter Page by Templateโ€ plugin helps you to do this. It adds a dropdown list of page template above the post/page list. You can filter posts/pages by selecting a template from the dropdown. Also you can filter and see pages those are using missing templates. There is a new column Template in page list table. This Template column shows the name of 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 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.

Works well for me with over 500 pages using multiple templates. I'm running WordPress 6.1.1 so it would be nice if it was tested by the author up to that level. Thanks for providing the plugin.

I;m in the process of swapping themes for an old site. It used page templates and this plugin has saved me a ton of time sorting through all the content to see what pages are using what template.

Could possibly do with confirming it still works with latest WP version (which at 5.9 it does seem to do)
