As the question states, I want to create a link that sends a user to the entries page only showing the pending entries.

I tried using the cpUrl function but can't seem to get it directly to the pending entries status, just the entries page.

This is now possible in Craft 4. More specifically, it's now possible to ping a URL similar to this one...


Depending on where you want the link, you may still need a tool to add a link in the Control Panel. As pointed out by @iamkeir in the comments, the CP Nav plugin is a good choice for adding a link to the main CP navigation.


The short answer is "no, this isn't currently possible".

With any luck, it will be added to the upcoming Craft 4.

It seems like a simple enough feature request, I'd be surprised if it hasn't been asked before. If you don't see a ticket on the Github repo, feel free to open a new issue. This discussion seems close, but is weirdly underrecognized.

  • ah too bad, would be nice if it does get added in Craft 4. Will create a ticket for it if I don't find any similar one. 👍 Thanks for the reply.

  • Anyone know if this was added to Craft 4? Been looking at verbb.io/craft-plugins/cp-nav in meantime

    @iamkeir I believe it is now possible in Craft 4, you should be able to ping a URL similar to this: /admin/entries/yourSection&status=pending. You may still need the CP Nav plugin to create an actual link for it.
