How can an admin display more than 20 items under "ALL posts" ( or on other pages )?

1 Answer 1


Go to Screen Options at the top, and change the number to something like 200. I don't think it will survive much more than that.

    I would add that setting a high number seems especially problematic for hierarchical post types.

  • Does not affect other users nor is it a programmatic solution. Screen options is not available and cannot be made available in certain cases/for certain user roles. Commented Mar 14, 2019 at 4:21
