By default drupal 7 find content page comes with filter by type and status. I wanted to give one more filter, where user can type the few letters from the title they are looking for so that they can find the article/page with ease even when theres 100's of content in the site.

I did something similar using views and exposing title as a filter. But it would be great to add this field and search to the default filters we find in the drupal 7 find content page.


Try the Administration Views module:

Replaces administrative overview/listing pages with actual views for superior usability.

It will let you replace the standard content admin page with a view, to which you can add as many filters as you need.

Use Find Content, simpler and newer than Administration Views.

Adds a search box to the Find Content screen

Requires: Node (enabled), Field (enabled), Field SQL storage (enabled)

  • I tried this but found it lacking because it doesn't support pagination properly. If you search for Contact and in page 1 of your default list you have a page called Contact Us and on page 2 of those results you have a page called Contacts it won't show Contacts until you navigate to the still showing pagination. Not helpful. – evanmcd Jan 29 '14 at 0:20

I think it's admin accessible area and instead of modifying it why don't you try search module with Search Autocomplete module

hope it will help you :)
