[resolved] is there any way to organize pages on the backend? (4 posts)

    This pertains to more of a website than a blog.

    I have a 2 sites which both have very hierarchial structures. One site has several hundred pages. The other site I'm working on has around 25

    When I load the site in WP on the backend, all the pages are there in a list. I've been told there is no way to organize them or put them into directories.

    For example I display coins of 4 sections: Rome, France, Poland, and Latin America. In each section there are many divisions: for ex Latin America has Argentina, Mexico, Ecuador, & so on. I can organize how the website is displayed & do the menus. Yet when I look at my WP account all the pages are there in one big long list which is very difficult to handle. Is there any way to put them into directories & subdirectories?

    Correct. WordPress does not use folders but you can organise static Pages in a hierarchical fashion using parent-child relationships. Have you reviewed Pages?

    Thanks Esmi, this is what my web guy told me but I'm a typical 47% paranoid type and never trust anyone without checking.

    The -child and --subchild type thing is not optimal but works well enough. At least it keeps them organized. If there was only a way to view only parents or only level 1 childs then it'd be just as good.

    This is exactly the problem I am having. I want to organized the backend menu but not change the URL structure. Is there anyway to do that?

    Right now I make changes to organize it a bit better through a Page Organizer plugin, but that changes the URLs. How do I do this without potentially changing the SEO benefits of URL's that match keywords?
