If you use the Restrict Content Pro addon that allows drip content and you want to have more control over how often each CTP entry is released you may want to add a new custom column that displays it in the WordPress admin.

Snippet to show Restrict Content Pro Drip Content addon data
Add the following code snippet to your functionality plugin:
In this code you use the
manage_course_posts_custom_column filters to add the header and column content respectively. The text displayed in the header is “Drip” but you can modify it.
To get the values, you access the information in the
rcp_drip_schedules table which is where the addon stores the data about the content drip (separated in units and period).
This code is intended to be displayed on the page where all the courses are listed in the WordPress backend. If you want it to be displayed in another Custom Post Type you have to modify the name of the filters. You have to replace “course” with the name under which the CPT is registered. That is, the name of the filters has to follow the following format:
With the snippet you also add some CSS so that the column occupies an appropriate width, in this case 60 pixels, but you can adjust it to your liking.
