Zenbu* for Craft is a powerful and customizable entry manager that allows users to view entries’ custom fields, ID, title, URL slug, categories, authors, statuses, post date, and more, all in one list! Search criteria can also be saved for later for easier retrieval.
Show/Hide any entry data or custom field, and change the order in which data is presented with simple drag & drop.
Some fields have additional options:
Y.m.d(uses Twig date filter, so even displaying something like
Opens on 2015-07-01is possible)
Add and remove search filters to narrow down your entry listing search. For example, looking for
Such searches are possible with Zenbu. The combinations are endless with an easy to use, flexible and powerful filering system.
Clients and Developers alike will love the ease of finding the entry information they’re looking for, without having to visit individual web pages or entry forms.
The search filters used to narrow down your entry searches can be saved for future use so that you don’t have to recreate your search filters every time. Searches can be added and removed, and can be labeled for easy reference.
Each user can have their own display profiles, enabling users to customize what entry data they want to see in Zenbu.
Need to tweak the display of entry data further? Need to add support for a third-party fieldtype? Zenbu allows you to use your own Craft/Twig code to customize entry display beyond what Zenbu offers.
No need to setup display settings individually for each user or user group: Zenbu allows you to apply your display settings to other user groups, speeding up Zenbu display setup for your client user groups.
Not a fan of infinite scrolling? Want to know how many entries are in a section? Zenbu displays paginated results (with control over the number of results per page), as well as the total entries found.
Zenbu can filter your entries based on locale, as well as display entry data in that selected locale.
Once installed, Craft will display the Zenbu plugin sections in its sidebar. You can change mentions of Zenbu in the interface to the label of your choice, eg. “Fancy Entry Listing”.
Zenbu can be installed or uninstalled without the worry of affecting your entry data or setup. You’re not “locked in” using Zenbu once installed.
Although Craft offers display and reordeing of entry custom fields in its native entry listing, options may sometimes be limited. With Zenbu, you can apply Zenbu’s display settings in Craft’s native entry listing.
Here are some examples:
Any plans for Zenbu for Craft 3? Yes, Zenbu is planned to be available for Craft 3. However, there is no ETA for release at this time.
As of this writing, Zenbu is currently compatible with native Craft fields. Simple third-party fieldtypes may display the content as stored in the database, whereas more complex fieldtypes will provide raw data in a modal window. You can also customize the display of your third-party fieldtype by using the Custom Display Template feature in Zenbu’s Display Settings (Zenbu 1.2.0+).
* Zenbu comes from the Japanese word “全部”, which means “everything”.
