Manual Usage

If you would like to filter the contents of the quicklink box, you can add a custom action for each post type you would like to filter:

add_action('wp_admin_quicknav_options_post', 'filter_post_quicknav');
function filter_post_quicknav($options=array())
  $params = array("post_type"=>'post',

  $posts = get_posts($params);

  if (count($posts) > 0)
    foreach($posts as $post)
      $options[$post->post_title] = $post->ID;

  return $options;

You can style the quicknav combo box with css using its custom idenitifier:

#wp_admin_quicknav {
  margin-left: 10px;


Will this work with my custom post types?

Yes. It will work with all posts, pages, and custom post types.
