Basically, I thinking how i could get a mini wp-admin/edit.php view inside the wp-admin/post.php page. does this even make sense to anyone?

Steve, I suggest adding more information to clarify your question. It might even be helpful to include a screenshot to show what you're trying to accomplish, and anything you might have already tried to accomplish it. – tnorthcutt Apr 17 '11 at 15:16
I'm sorry, I expected this. Ok maybe if i slow down it will help. So if you click on pages in the admin section you'll get a list of all your pages right? right. you'll also have access to the quick-edit functions. Now imagine if that exactly list with all its functionality was viewable while editing a pages content. hopefully this helps. – Steve Fischer Apr 18 '11 at 17:06

Try the CMS Tree Page View plugin (my favorite) or the Easily navigate pages on dashboard plugin. Both allow you to have a list of your pages on the Dashboard.

Then you should be able to add that panel using this reference: add_meta_box to integrate the box that appears on the Dashboard (see wp_add_dashboard_widget in functions.php of CMS Tree Page View)

ok awesome. now I guess i just need to find the hooks that call...umm the template box and add the tree view page function to the hook? right? – Steve Fischer Apr 19 '11 at 15:12
Yes - see my edits. – GavinR Apr 19 '11 at 15:44
wow this is great. I really appreciate all the help. – Steve Fischer Apr 20 '11 at 14:22

Also take a look at Admin Menu Tree Page View. It's like the above mentioned CMS Tree Page View, but always visible in the left admin menu. I think it sounds more like what you're looking for.

The plugin looks like this: screenshots.
