This module adds an easier way for administrators to filter the content on a Drupal site for administration purposes.

CMF is an alternative to the Administer >> Content management >> Content tool with these additional options:

  • Show nodes, comments or both
  • Filter by author (select from drop-down list)
  • Filter by author (enter username in AJAX search field)
  • Filter by user role (shows nodes authored by any user in the selected role)
  • Filter by user status (active or blocked)
  • Filter by title or body substring
  • Filter by node created date (before/after)
  • Filter by node language
  • Displays a column in the content list with node creation time
  • Sort content list by any column: Title, Type, Author, Status, Time

CMF also optionally adds a User Content tab to the My Account page that brings up CMF with a list of nodes authored by the current user.

Significant improvements sponsored by MomsTeam.

Very useful -- Drupal's built-in Content tool was sorely missing the sort and filter-by-author features. I was also pleased that I could enable CMF so users can manage content without having to grant full "Administer nodes" permission. ("Administer nodes" permission is required to have the default Content tool to appear and it grants users full access to create/edit all content.)

For those who like to add a bit of color to their pages, there is an optional section in the CSS file to add color to the buttons.

Version Status

With the increasing adoption of Drupal 6 and the maturing of D7, we feel the time has come to place our 5.x version into “maintenance only” mode. From now until we release a 7.x version there will be no new development on the 5.x version; we will, however, provide a best effort to fix bugs.

Drupal 7

Keep an eye on #1115460: Improved Admin: similar modules, deprecate and #1236002: similar modules, deprecate. The astute observer will notice that there is a 7.x branch started. It is not useable; download it only if you want to create patches.


Note: Translation projects have been moved and are now actively maintained at

How can you get involved?

  • Write a review for this module on
  • Report any bugs, feature requests, etc. in the issue tracker
  • Review and comment on the issue queue. We value all adopter input in charting the course of this module.


As with all contributed modules, when considering submitting an issue:

  1. Read the documentation (two or three times is better). Don't forget the handbook pages.
  2. Review the existing issues list. (Don't forget to select "<all>" for the "Status" field.)
  3. Gather all the appropriate information. This may include (but is not limited to):
  • Drupal version.
  • Browser type and version.
  • Database type and version.
  • Error messages, if any.
  • Module settings.
  • Submit the issue. If other modules are involved, you may need to submit the issue to those modules as well.
  • PHP prior 5.2.5 and MySql 4

    Due to end-of-life on PHP4 and MySql4, we no longer actively support either of those products. If a problem arises, we will make an effort to work around it, but will not make a guarantee. Drupal 7 will require PHP 5.2.5 or higher and MySql 5 (or Postgres 8); if your host is not at these levels yet, please encourage them to get there ASAP.


    As with all modules, please make sure you run update.php after updating this module, even if no updates are identified.

    Development version status

    The development versions (-dev) are where the newest stuff is, including any bug fixes and new features. We try to make sure it is tested before we commit anything, but occasionally a bug will get by us. Your help on testing this code is greatly appreciated. The translation templates may not always be up-to-date in the dev releases.
