Once again, mblackburn helped fix a bunch of my errors to get this working. I must have broken this thing in 5 different places, all of which he found and fixed in just minutes.
The best part about this is there is nothing to install, restart, break, bend, boil... Just a simple copy and paste into a default resource, functioning exactly as it was meant to function.
ESTIMATED TIME TO INSTALL/PERFORM MODIFICATION:<5 Minutes
DIFFICULTY LEVEL: 1-Youngling

This mod was performed on the following SolarWinds environment/versions: (It may, or may not work on other versions)
Now, we can easily see how many different pages/tabs each viewgroup contains. Off to the right hand side, we see a big blank area. Before anyone brings out the pitchforks, hear me out. I am the president of the "I hate empty, wasted, white space on my page" fan club, and I assure you, this space will not be wasted.
Clicking on one of the viewgroups to the left will actually populate all of the views/tabs within that viewgroup. For example, the "Testing_Will" viewgroup has 19 tabs. Once I click on the row for "Testing_Will", that empty space populates with links to all of the pages within that group.
Clicking on a different row will change the data displayed on the right side of the resource. You will only ever see the pages related to the group you are interested in viewing. Each of the "ViewTitle" links should open in a new tab once clicked.
This method was not intended to be a showstopper, or anything of grand design. The purpose is simply to make it easier to narrow down pages, using minimal screen real estate.
Possible enhancements: Page Thumbnails, Search, Management Functionality (Edit, Copy, Delete), Create New Page, etc. (Edit and New could be added very easily, as they are simply URLs.) (I have added the Edit and Create New links to an updated version of this mod.)
