If you’ve ever managed a WordPress website before, you know how ragey sifting through tons of content in the admin panel can make you. There are lots of useful tools like filters and search, but there’s one thing that’s always been a little annoying for me. In my experience, post titles don’t always make a lot of sense when working within the admin dashboard. It’s usually only a minor annoyance, but when you work with WordPress every day, even small things can become a pretty big pain in the neck over time.
Uh, Okay? What’s the Big Deal?
Let me give you an example. Let’s say you’ve got a great post about Bluehost reviews. It doesn’t make a whole lot of sense to title your post “Bluehost review” because that would look spammy and uninteresting to your readers, so you name it something a bit more juicy. Now, the title you picked out might be great for reader engagement and your improving your blog’s SEO, but it’s probably not going to jump right out at you when you’re combing through 100’s of posts in the WordPress admin panel.
Plus, this isn’t just an issue with blog posts. Think about your “About Us” page or your “Contact” page. You’re not going to title them “About Us” and “Contact”, are you? That’s gonna make your website feel pretty stuffy and uninteresting to your visitors. No bueno. On the flip side, try remembering what the heck “We’re Here to Help” or “Support from Real People” means when you’re looking at a huge list of pages without any context. Are you feeling the rage yet? 😀
OMG I’M SO ANGRY NOW!! MAKE IT STOP!
Woah. That’s a little too much rage. Maybe calm down a bit. Anyway, what if you could have a nice, dry, obvious title for your content within the admin panel and still keep your actual title descriptive and engaging? With Admin Content Labels, now you can! All you need to do is install the plugin from your WordPress dashboard by visiting the “Add New” plugin screen and searching for “Admin Content Labels”.
Just install it, activate it, and start labeling your content for an easier, more coherent WordPress administration experience. 🙂
