My dashboard( It is multisite Installation ) section for pages and posts conflicts with options when there are morethan 5 data fields . For example : I have these things under my Posts section in dashbpard :

Title Author Categories Tags Comments Date Forum-Linked Featured

Because of these many fields these options conflicts each other like shown in the screen shot : Edit | Quick Edit | Trash | Preview | Purge from Page Cache

It is because of the increased fields like forum-linked ,featured etc. Some times when I install any other related plugins .The number of data fields increases and it becomes more ugly with the editing options .

Could any one suggest me a good Idea to fix this ?

Columns can be hidden from view using the screen options tab.

On the upper right hand side of the dashboard click screen options

Un check any of the columns you want to hide.

Normally the edit options are displayed as horizontal text. A plugin or other function has changed this.

Thanks ! It worked .The problem is causing because of the additional columns like forum linked,featured ,Id etc. Is there any way to fix the column width for Title column and reduce the column width for other columns( which uses less space actually) to entire Multi-site installation ?So that one need not use the screen options every time they edit. – Name-AK Sep 27 '10 at 9:38
@user402 Find the css the plugin uses to manipulate the columns and change the width. – Chris_O Sep 27 '10 at 16:19
