More Listing Framework Columns ?

Movable Type’s Listing Framework is a fantastic way to get an overview and review content — it’s responsible for the “Manage” screens. The column sorting and filtering options are very powerful!

You may have noticed, however, that not all content is visible on the Listing Framework screens. This plugin adds more columns to the Listing Framework, including Custom Fields!

By default, user-created Listing Framework filters are available to only the user that created them. Any user can access them through System Overview > Listing Filters, however this is less convenient than simply having them available on the screen they are for. So, this plugin will also make any user-created filter available to all users, making it easy to share filters with all users.
