A new way to create, move, edit and publish your pages for your favorite CMS.
Well nothing at all. The plugin creates a new management panel and still relies on the regular WordPress pages. However we do use a new way to store page relationships to speed up display. Also we don't create any new database table and regular relationships are maintained. If you uninstall the plugin, pages will be there safe and sane.
Currently, APM has some hooks but not in a consistent way. We are going to develop a lot more hooks in the post 1.0 era. Currently, hooks are available to add custom columns and action links (see Other Notes tab)
Addons are optional functionalities you can activate from the Settings menu (see Installation tab). Think them as plugins for... plugin. At the moment, there is only one addon which allows to add a Last Modified sortable column in panels.
Yes. The plugin manages regular pages and the menu builder has still access to them.
No. Regular page template tags and functions still work. Regular page template and permalinks are also supported. We do have new template tags, however it is not mandatory to use them.
We've looked at the WP core itself and to several plugins making use of those extra columns (as Simply Exclude or WordPress SEO for example). We found 2 things. First, using the WP hook is very difficult as it expects to be on the original panel. Second, plugins insert themselves in many ways into the Pages panel (eg. bringing new scripts testing the current URL). So unfortunatly, we came to the conclusion that we won't support extra columns as it will introduce to much specific and unstable code in our plugin. However, we perfectly understand the importance of this feature for the users and the developpers. So we've added following hooks to add extra columns : apm_manage_pages_columns, apm_manage_pages_custom_column and apm_load_wp_data (see Other Notes tab)
Please, use the Support tab. However, remember this is not a commercial support of any kind. We check regularly the coming requests and questions and try to keep up with answering them. But we also have regular jobs and... lifes. One more detail : at the moment, we're all located in France. So if you are in another timezone, remember that even french sleep (yes I know, weird).
Yes (and we thank you in advance if so). All patches will be validated by our lead developer (yes that's you Mathieu). If accepted, you'll be mentionned as contributor to the plugin (if you accept so). To submit a patch please report in the Support tab.
Yes and... no :-) Home for APM is here : http://www.uncategorized-creations.com/. At the moment, it's a single page with a logo. You can leave your email address to get fresh news about APM. In far distant future, it might be a complete website. In the meantime, you can also follow us on Twitter : @uncatcrea.
We support WordPress 3.4.2, 3.5 up to the 3.7.1. We don't plan to support earlier versions.
All developments have been done under the last version of Chrome, Firefox, Safari and Internet Explorer (Windows 7).
By default, APM is in English and French. If you wish to, you can translate the interface in your own language in the standard WordPress way.
