When you’re working in a publishing environment, the most used part of WordPress will be viewing your draft posts. After all, this is your current, active work. Once done, it’s over to an editor to publish. Yet, draft posts are a few too many clicks than they really need to be.
The following code, added to your theme’s
functions.php file will add new sub-menu options under the “Post” menu.
If any drafts exist, you’ll see a sub-menu named “All drafts”. If you, personally, have any drafts then you’ll see a second sub-menu named “My drafts”. Alongside each, too, is a counter of how many drafts there are.
If you think of any improvements to this, please let me know.
