What does it do?
Post Descriptions lets you add descriptions to posts and pages, which lets you do things like add small to-do’s or don’t-forget’s for your team members or yourself.
How does it work?
Adding post descriptions
Post descriptions can be added from two places:
1. The Edit screen
2. The Quick Edit screen
Checking Post Descriptions
You can check your post descriptions in two places:
1. In the column from your posts or pages admin overview
2. As a post state (the bold text next to your page or post title)
Enabling/disabling Post States
When you add longer descriptions, your admin might get a bit cluttered. In those cases you could disable showing post descriptions in post states with a simple checkbox.
After installing the plugin, you will only see a column added on the posts and pages admin screens. If you go to Settings > Post Descriptions, or click Settings on the Plugins page, you’ll find a single option to turn on Post States. When you enable them, you’ll see the description in bold after the page or post title.
