We recently released a new free plugin called Show IDs by Echo Plugins. The plugin is hosted at WordPress.org right here. The plugin has a small footprint but many developers and publishers will find it useful.

The plugin reveals IDs on admin screens that list posts, pages, custom post types and taxonomies, and others.

You can choose to display the ID in a new ‘ID’ column and/or under each row title after the ‘Edit | Quick Edit | View’ actions.

Feature #1

Choose where to display IDs:

  • In a new ‘ID’ column
  • Under each row title beside the ‘Edit | Quick Edit | View’ actions


Feature #2

Reveal IDs in the following lists:

  • Posts
  • Pages
  • Categories
  • Tags
  • Comments
  • Custom post types
  • Custom taxonomies
  • Users
  • Media


You can either install the plugin in your WordPress by searching for “Show IDs by Echo Plugins” or download the plugin file from the plugin page:


We are happy to contribute to the WordPress community and hope you like the plugin. Please let us know if you have any questions, suggestions, or ideas.
