Simple Draft List


This is a very useful way to display the titles of your drafts posts and pages – maybe as a «coming soon» teaser for

To display the list on your site you will need to insert the following code, where appropriate, into your theme…

<?php simple_draft_list('parameters'); ?>

Where parameters is an optional list of parameters, each seperated by an ampersand (&)

These are as follows…

limit= : The maximum number of draft items to display. The default is 0, which is unlimited. A limit of just 1 will cause the <li> tags not to be used, allowing you to embed the result in a sentence.

type= : This allows you to limit the results to either posts or pages. The default is both.

order= : This is the sequence that you’d like to order the results in. It consists of 2 codes – the first is either t or d to represent the title or date and the second is a or d for ascending or descending. Therefore order=td will display the results in descending title sequence. The default is descending date.

The plugin will then display the list as an HTML list (i.e. with <li> and </li> around each entry).

An example would be…

<?php simple_draft_list('limit=5&type=posts&order=da'); ?>

This would display a list of up to 5 draft posts in ascending date sequence.

The following is an example of how it could be used in the sidebar, with a function_exists check so that it doesn’t cause problems if the plugin is not active…

<?php if (function_exists('simple_draft_list')) : ?>
<h2>Coming Soon</h2>
<ul><?php simple_draft_list('limit=5&type=posts&order=da'); ?></ul>
<?php endif; ?>

If you wish to omit a page or post from the list then you can do this by simply giving the post/page a title beginning with an exlamation mark. You can then remove this before publishing the page/post.



  1. Upload the entire simple-draft-list folder to your wp-content/plugins/ directory.
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress.
  3. There is no options screen – configuration is done in your code.

I have several post types and the plugin seemed to handle them as either published or draft (not published). So I could never get it to perform well for my needs. It was totally reliable, just not up to my demands.

After install all i had to do was add the widget and i had the initial feature i wanted out of the box. after seeing some of the additional features i wanted to know more and all the documentation was easy to find in the Other Notes tab right here on wordpress. need to make some changes to description/search ability, this did not show up under a search for Upcoming Posts, this definitely qualifies as its exactly what i wanted. Thank you for the simple plugin!
