Fast Page Switch

Save time switching between posts of any post-type in wp-admin.

This plugin adds a metabox to the edit screen for any post type. The metabox lets you quickly switch between all available posts using the Select2 jQuery plugin. No need to visit "All Posts“ first. You can use the settings page to determine for which post types (e.g. Pages, Posts, etc.) the metabox should be available.

Please do not use the rating system for your support requests. Simply leave a message in the plugin support forum and I will get back to you right away.

If this plugin saves you time, please consider supporting it with a good rating. Thanks.
