Admin Columns


Manage and organize columns in the posts, users, comments and media lists in the WordPress admin panel. Transform the WordPress admin screens into beautiful, clear overviews.

Admin Columns Pro

The Pro version of Admin Columns will allow columns to be sorted, filtered, directly edited and its content to be exported to CSV. Admin Columns Pro offers integration with many third party plugins:

  • Advanced Custom Fields: add columns for all your custom fields
  • WooCommerce: display detailed product and order information
  • Toolset Types, Yoast SEO, and many more

Find out about additional features of Admin Columns Pro on our website.

Enhanced list tables

By default, WordPress provides list tables, giving you an overview of your content in the admin panel. These list tables are quite limited, however. For posts and custom post types, for example, not much more than the date and title of the post is displayed. Admin Columns allows you to take control over these list tables, managing the columns dislpayed in these overviews. Supporting custom fields, featured images, custom taxonomies, EXIF data for media and much, much more (Admin Columns features over 200 columns), you can create overviews that are perfectly suited for your content.


Admin Columns greatly enhances your WordPress installation. Whether you’re running a simple blog or a full-blown enterprise website, it will prove its worth within minutes. Thanks to our dedicated development and support team, you can rest assured that Admin Columns will persist to be an essential part of any WordPress installation.

To give you some insight into the great amount of possibilities Admin Columns offers to enhance your (or your client’s) WordPress admin panel, be sure to check out the screenshots or the demo video!

Sortable, filterable and editable columns & import/export

All of the new columns support sorting on all screens, and many of them support filtering. Another great feature is direct editing: it allows you to directly edit all types of data (including titles, featured images, custom fields and taxonomies) directly from the posts overview. These features are only available with Admin Columns Pro! Admin Columns Pro also allows you to import and export your column setup, and it allows you to save your columns to PHP, so you (and your clients) don’t have to worry about the admin interface!

Third party plugin integration

Admin Columns works perfectly with just about all external plugins with custom columns. Examples include Yoast SEO (SEO columns), WooCommerce, Advanced Custom Fields, Types and Pods. Not only can you reorganize the custom columns added by these plugins, you can also add custom columns provided by Admin Columns in the overview!

The Developer license of Admin Columns Pro includes Advanced Custom Fields and WooCommerce add-ons for easy integration and inline editing of data from these plugins.

Custom field column

Admin Columns allows you to display custom fields for posts (post meta) and users (user meta) for all custom fields you have. With many different custom field types supported, such as files, images, numbers and even post and user relations, you can create a beautiful overview of your custom content!

To ensure proper formatting of your custom fields, Admin Columns provides a set of custom field types, which automatically format your meta data properly.

  • Color
  • Date
  • Images
  • Number
  • Text
  • URL
  • True/False
  • [Pro] Relational: Posts, Users and Media

Does what it says.

A little non-intuitive on the back end, esp. with finding the non-Pro tab. But it works perfectly and offers a lot of choices to add to the Admin page and post screens, including the essential “ID” and Template columns so you can verify what you’re doing in the Site Editor.

Great plugin! Does just what I needed. Still playing around with all the functionality.
