    I just installed brand new 3.1 and then your plugin and there isn't any way to make it drag and drop the sort order anymore?

    Hmm, working fine for me. Are you talking about drag and drop in the page management screen?

    Have you tried deactivating all plugins exrept for Admin Management Xtended to see it's some kind of incompatbility with another plugin?

    I just did, no change. It's the first time I use this plugin so I was expecting to rearrange posts and pages with a drag and drop functionality. Is that how it is supposed to work?

    Drag'n'Drop currently works for pages only.

    Right, ok...Well, page won't work here. Where do you normally grab the page to be rearranged from? Is there an extra icon available when it normally works? Or do you just click anywhere and grab?

    A double arrow icon should appear in the second column (right after the checkboxes) when you hover a row.

    Can you post a screenie of the pages management screen please? What browser are you using?

    And righthand-side on top of that panel you can't see buttons to switch between "Off", "Direct input" and "Drag'n'Drop"?

    Try going here http://<your-domain>/wp-admin/options.php, search for the option name 'ame_show_orderoptions' and change its value from 1 to 2. Does that solve the problem?

    No, no switch buttons available. Couldn't find "ame_show_orderoptions" in the options.php file. By the way I am using latest 3.1.2 wordpress version but had same problem in 3.1.1

    Did you open the options.php in your browser? Don't look at the source code. ;)

    Yeah, brilliant! The arrow appears now. I still don't options to switch to various modes but that should do it! Thanks for your help and patience!

    Still weird as I'm running the exact same WP and plugin version, hmm.

    Hi there. I noticed that it's not possible to rearrange pages that belong to a parent page. Have you even had that issue?

    That was never possible, and won't be, since this is pretty tricky actually as long as the page list is paginated.
    This has also been on wp-hackers and Trac tickets for several times, but never found it's way into WP for that reason.

    Hey Alphawolf, nice plugin!

    Noticed the thing about not being able to rearrange child items. How about borrowing some inspiration from this:

    (if possible?)

    Hey wob,

    yep that would be possible and quite "easy" to realize, but with Admin Management Xtended my premise was to extend the given UI, and not to add new panels for several purposes. So, I'm still looking for a solution to extend the default post listing panel with Child pages drag'n'drop.

    Yeah I understand, and that's what I like so much about this plugin!

    I didn't realize that there's much that differ between extending the WP UI and having an additional panel, I thought that maybe you could benefit from the other persons work but I understand now that it probably is more complicated (I guess these other plugins with separate panels have another way of structuring the elements that's easier when it comes to drag and dropping).

    Keep up the good work, will definately use this!

    Is it possible to drag-n-drop page-like custom post types?
