16. Oktober 2009

wet_quickopen is a plugin for Textpattern which prepends a search term input on top of the „Recent Articles“ list at the article edit screen.

The „Recent Articles“ list is filtered by matching the current search term against all articles‘ titles and bodies in descending posting date order. All you have to do is type and wait for a moment until the „Recent Articles“ list refreshes.

wet_quickopen requires a jQuery-supported browser with JavaScript enabled.


  1. Textpattern 4.7+ is required, wet_quickopen will eventually not work with any prior version.
  2. Install wet_quickopen.txt as a Textpattern plugin.
  3. Install wet_quicklink’s sidekick wet_peex.txt as a Textpattern plugin.
  4. Done. If all went well, the „content > write“ screen will be adorned by a new input box atop of the „Recent Articles“ list.
