#30190 closed enhancement (fixed)

Denote Front and Posts Pages (in list view)

Right now, if you set custom pages for "front page" and "posts page" in settings, there are no markings on the page list view that denotes you these as special pages.

I've seen other systems add small text to the title to denote that it is currently set as "front page". I believe it would make for a better UX if WordPress did something similar.

I've also thought about this.

Maybe having it permanently sticked as the very first page (regardless of ordering) in the admin list view with some form of some indication would be something to consider. I hate having to hunt around for the homepage within the pagination as it's typically the very first page I create.

Having it permanently set as the first page also adds a sense of hierarchy.

30190.diff accomplishes this - others want to weigh in on UI/wording perhaps

We could also toss it into _post_states() since that's already fired and has a filter - see 30190.2.diff. The loosey type comparison is necessary, with apologies. Looks like this, using existing strings:

Can a page be both?

Replying to nacin:

Can a page be both?

The UI lets you set it and save it that way, with just a warning on the Reading Settings screen. A page probably shouldn't be, though.
