Make Default Post Listing Mode Filterable
|Reported by:||ericmann||Owned by:|
Inspired by a question on the WordPress Answers Stack Exchange.
By default, WordPress displays the post list in the admin as a list view. There's an option to switch to an excerpt view that many people use and some would like to set this as the default mode.
Unfortunately, the default is hard-coded into WordPress and is not filterable. I propose we add a basic filter to allow developers to override the default "list" setting for the view mode.
