- If you haven’t already, login to the “Admin area / dashboard” of your website by adding /wp-login.php to the end of your domain. You’ll need to already know your Username or Email Address and Password associated with the User account that has Admin privileges. If you’ve forgotten your password, you can use the “Lost your password?” link at the bottom of the login form to reset your password.
- Using the black bar on the left-hand side of your WordPress Admin area / dashboard, navigate to Posts or Pages (or any other custom post type like Events or Products) and select the option that lists the individual posts/pages/events/products/etc. In the case of Posts, you’d click “Posts” or “All Posts”. For Pages you’d click “Pages” or “All Pages”.
- At the top right of the screen. Click the little “Screen Options” tab sticking down under the black bar at the top of the window, all the way on the upper right-hand side of the screen.
- Change “Number of items per page:” from 20 to something less infuriating like 200 or 500 or 999. Don’t forget to click the big blue “Apply” button too.
Congrats! Now you can see a deeper list as you’re working on a site without having to click through a billion pages or search for something when you can’t remember what you named it. 😉
The error looks something like…
Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 33554432 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 2348617 bytes) in /home4/xxx/public_html/wp-includes/plugin.php on line xxx
This is a common problem and occurs when you exceed your default Memory Limit.
Download the wp-config.php from the root WordPress directory.
Add the following line towards the top of the file inside the main php tag:
This increases the memory limit to 128M.
Note: If you continue to see this error after making this update, you’ll need to contact and work with your web hosting company as likely you’re hitting a threshold they’ve set on their server settings for memory usage.
