Views Bulk Operations Main Admin Content Screen

Published October 21, 2009

One of the most actively used administration pages on any drupal site is the main content administration page (admin/content/node). From this page, the site administrator can quickly get a list of all the nodes on their site as well as filter and sort the list in a variety of ways.

However useful you may find this, you may not be aware that the Views Bulk Operations module provides an even more useful main content administration page with the often requested "search by title" filter.

After enabling the Views Bulk Operations module, you can go to admin/build/views and check out how the "admin_content" view is built and give it a test drive by going to admin/content/node2. The great thing about this view is that you can customize it to fit your site's exact needs.

When you're ready to dump Drupal's default main content administration page and replace it with the "admin_content" view, all you have to do is change the "path" under "Page settings" in the "Page" display of the view to admin/content/node - it will override Drupal's default behavior and you'll never look back!


Change the path to admin/content/node, not to admin/build/node.

How would I replicate the category dropdown field that exists in the core screen (showing all taxonomies including terms in the dropdown)?
