Main Features

Display entry data the way you want it.

Show/Hide any entry data or custom field, and change the order in which data is presented with simple drag&drop.

More powerful and flexible filtering options through rules-based entry filtering

Similar to email applications, add and remove as many filtering rules as needed to narrow down your entry search, and your entry list will refresh accordingly. For example, want entries associated with Category A and B, but not Category C? Want only closed blog entries written by yourself, that contain the letters "EE"? Filter your entry list results by category, author, status, sticky, entry date, keyword, and more! Zenbu lets you search entries for keywords in specific custom fields as well! The combinations are endless with an easy to use, flexible and powerful filering system.

Add to this a handful of search terms such as "contains", "does not contain", "starts with", "does not start with", "ends with", "does not end with", and "contains exactly", and you can imagine the power that lies within Zenbu for searching entries.

Clients and Developers alike will be thrilled by the ease of finding the entry information they're looking for, without having to visit individual web pages or entry forms. 


Save and label your entry search filters

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.


Zenbu custom and other field options

Field-specific extra options

Want to…

  • reduce the amount of characters displayed in text-type cells??
  • display HTML synthax when viewing text custom fields?
  • format (or stylize) entry/edit/expiration dates?

In addition to the above, Zenbu has a number of extra options for fieldtypes and other common entry attributes.

Saving display profiles for your or other member groups

Don't want to display all fields to a specific member group? Set up what and how data is displayed and in what order, and save these settings for your own member group, or to other member groups (depending on your access permissions).

Access settings for each member group

Control which member groups are allowed to access their display settings and the member access panel, which groups have a channel dropdown in Content => Edit, and who can save display profiles to other member groups.
