Added the plugin Filter Admin Published which filters the view of posts and pages to the default view of “Published” as opposed to “All”. It’s small convenience to be able to see just the list of published posts as the default setting, especially if you have a lot of drafts in the queue. This plugin hasn’t been updated in over 2 years, but since it only does this one thing, i don’t foresee any breakage or conflict. I may, however, wish to fork this into a required plugin for future admin setups. Or simply included the code in theme setup function.
