A module to recreate the back-end content administration pages where it changes admin/content and adds admin/content/% and admin/content/%/% wildcards for content types and taxonomy terms. This module creates a content admin interface in the form of a menu tree with the use of views and VBO for a dynamic table of content based on the position in the menu tree.
This module effectively brings more of a visual experience that means content authors and administrators can go through a hierarchical menu of data and still know where they are due to the menu's trail. This is focused on mostly more complicated sites with multiple types under a content type.
For instance if a site is being built for product information (Not E-commerce) then there will be a Product content type. Then this has it's direct children in the form of taxonomy terms such as boilers, underfloor heating, wind turbines and spare parts. Then boilers will have biomass boilers, boiler flue systems and combi boilers. Underfloor heating and wind turbines wouldn't have children. Spare parts would then have Filters, feed pipes and so on. From talking to various content administrators in this situation I found what they said most Content Management Systems were lacking was a visual tree where they can click links for each category and sub category to manage content from the back-end as oppose to the obvious solutions out their like taxonomy menu for the front end. You could argue that you can add edit buttons on the front end but the back end needs to provide that easy usability as well.
You can configure which content types to be displayed in the configuration form for the module which is found at admin/config/content/content_admin_tree.
Dependencies for the module are:
Views Bulk Operations
Context admin serves the purpose of allowing you to create custom content administration pages. It focuses on adding content admin pages to nodes as menu items. Content Admin Tree servers a different purpose as it focuses on the back-end content navigation. Potentially a feature that could be added to this module would be integration with Context Admin.
