John O’Nolan, a member of the WordPress Core UI Team, has released a new plugin which makes a small change to the WordPress UI by adding color-coded post statuses.
The plugin, called UI Labs, lets an admin know with a glance which phase of the editorial process a post is in.
UI Labs is released as part of an experiment O’Nolan is running with the WordPress backend. He will be running a lot of different experiments within this plugin to see if the WordPress community like the UI changes.
If you wish to try out this plugin, search for “UI Labs” in WordPress plugin installer or download from official repository at the below link.
