Simple Page Ordering 2.1 for WordPress
Order your pages (and other hierarchical post types) with simple drag and drop right in the post list.
Simply drag and drop the page into your desired position! It’s that simple. No new admin menus pages, no dedicated clunky user interfaces. Just drag and drop on the page list screen.
To facilitate the menu order management on sites with many pages, the plug-in also adds a new drop down filter allowing you to customize the paging (pages per page) on the page admin screen. Your last choice will even be saved whenever you return (on a user to user basis and post type by post type basis)!
The plug-in is “capabilities smart” – only users with the ability to edit others’ pages (i.e. editors and administrators) will be able to reorder pages.
Integrated help is included! Just click the “help” tab toward the top right of the screen; the help is below the standard help for the screen.
Note that this plug-in only allows drag and drop resort within the same branch in the page tree / hierarchy for a given page. You can instantly change the hierarchy by using the Quick Edit feature built into WordPress and changing the “Parent” option. This may be addressed in the future, but the intention is to avoid confusion about “where” you’re trying to put the page. For example, if you move a page after another page’s last child, are you trying to make it a child of the other page, or position it after the other page? Ideas are welcome.
