Small plugin for finding pages of a specific page type

Recently I’ve had an reoccurring need to find pages of a specific page type. Since the edit mode search is a bit limited to say the least and the tree structure in my particular case is huge, I created a small action window plugin.

It’s nothing fancy you can select a start page for the search and page type to search for.

The search result is just a straight list of links. The tooltip of the links contains the breadcrumb of the site.

It’s possible to limit the possibility to see the plugin through an appsetting specifying user groups that should have access.

In the enclosed rar file is the complete source and as well as a compiled version.

Just drop the bin and Logica folder in the web root and you´re good to go.

For a more permanent solution check out QuickSearchExtender over at EPiCode.

Good idea! I think many people will recognize the procedure I usually use: If unsure there are pages of the page type, create one. Then delete the page type to generate a warning with a list of the pages using it :)

In most situations it's good enoug to create a new pagetype and then delete it and that what I've done so far. Bit I think that sites and page types are getting more complex and testing is best done on already existing pages which is placed in the right context.

Especially when migrating and testing CMS 4 sites to CMS 5.

I don't understand how to use it, can you guide a lost soul?

I added the bin to my bin, and added the Logica folder to my web root - now what?
