Manage column profile in WordPress bulk post editing plugin can help you to take the most advantages of our plugin. In fact, the main purpose of providing a post table in this plugin was to enable the store managers to see as many columns as they need related to each post / custom post in the main page and then bulk edit any of them.
To help more and make it more convenient for the store manager, we designed a special tab called “Column Manager” and we’re going to show you how easy it is adding any columns to your post table in this tutorial.
