Parent option on pages not working.... (10 posts)

    Hi there,

    I installed a new site with 3.6.1 and it seems as though I'm unable to create parent-child relationships on pages. I thought this was always possible...? if there is a setting I need to change, where would that be?

    thanks for your help everybody!

    There is no setting that you need to change. What theme are you using? Where did you download it from?

    I used the simplicity theme from wooThemes. might that be the problem? I didn't think that the theme would have an effect on how pages work.... learn something new every day I guesss.

    Can you replicate the problem using the default Twenty Thirteen theme?

    yeah i switched to 2013 and it still has the same problem - no option to choose a parent when editing pages. is there a setting I can change somewhere?

    Have you tried:

    - deactivating all plugins to see if this resolves the problem. If this works, re-activate the plugins one by one until you find the problematic plugin(s).

    - resetting the plugins folder by FTP or PhpMyAdmin. Sometimes, an apparently inactive plugin can still cause problems.

    So - if there's no content, how do you know that the child Page functionality isn't working?
