    This thread is just here to shine some light on the PageMash plugin by Joel Starnes. It works excellent if you need a fast and easy way to re-arrange your wp_list_pages() or hide pages from your menu bar.

    Love it! A+

    Great plugin. I had about 60 pages to setup. This plugin makes changing page order and defining parent pages so fast and easy. This should be the default for WordPress page management.

    Plus I can use the function in the body of my template code.

    How would it behave on a site with close to 800 Pages?
    I would be really happy if someone responded to this.

    HI there,

    first pagemash worked ok, but now it doesn't want to go...it keeps sayint "Error: Update Timeout" and it doesn't save the page positions. Any idea?

    @SupersonicSquirrel pageMash will work with large numbers of pages, but is not optimised so will be very slow!! (particularly when loading)

    @enrico_34 did it stop working after updating the plugin? or do you know what caused it to serve this error?
    Try enabling the $ShowDegubInfo var at the top of pagemash.php

    Also loving pageMash.

    My request would be to make it more self explanatory, in as far as i have to tell people "You want Manage > pageMash". If it was called Arrange Pages in teh admin menu, or something like that. A link on the "Manage > Pages" page "Arrange pages with drag and drop"

    thanks again

    When I move a page to a new parent that page becomes 404 until I go to it and make a modification to it (for example, manage->pages->page that just got moved to new parent-> add an extra space to the end of the body).

    Yet... wordpress is properly showing it's new parent, it's new URL (underneath it's title), everything. The page just dissapears from public access, however.

    Fresh install of pageMash 1.1.3 on WordPress 2.5.1.

    edit/update: Well.. it's working fine on another one of my wordpress installs (same versions of everything), so I know that it is probably something isolated to the first install. Will poke around and see.

    I did update it, yes, and I think it came after it...but I have another exact copy of my website on another database, and it works ok...that's strange!!!

    locash: Because my website is not a blog. It's full of articles, stories and similar things.

    jmash: Thanks for the response.

    This looks like a great plugin for pages, but does anyone know of a similar plugin for posts? Posts have the management and syndication functionality that I need, but it's really tough to set them up in the right reading order using dates/times.

    Thanks for any help!

    I will try PageMash! Thanks.

    @dains, I don't know what kind of post-ordering you need for your site but you might be able to do what you want by modifying the query in your theme, before The Loop. More info in the Codex if you search those terms. For example you could query your posts in alphabetical order. Then you could title the posts like Chapter 01: A new road. Chapter 02: Into the woods. It would be in order. Just depends what you want to do.

    hi, anyone know how to make this plugin compatible with wordpress qTranslate plugin? im sure its an easy fix for someone with knowhow, all that need fixing is for the language tags in qtranslate to be removed from displaying in the pagemash site tree.
    thanks so much!!

    Amen! My eyes would cross without this very necessary plugin! 80+ pages. Thank you, Joel!

    PageMash is awesome. An obvious candidate to inclusion into core, IMHO.

    Have a quick question wondering if someone could answer for me re: this plugin...

    I'm using WordPress as a CMS. As such, I need to have subpages of pages but not have them appear in the main menu (certain subpages will be visible whilst others will not be -- having them all visible would be a NIGHTMARE!).

    Using this plugin to "hide" the subpages, can you still link to them in a post or page and have the reader get access to that subpage by clicking the link? Or does it make the page private?

    Thanks in advance for your help!

    @NerdSpawn:
    "hiding" will just hide the link from the menu, so yes you can still link to the page.

    You might also find this plugin useful:

    @jmash

    I too am getting the "Error: Update Timeout" error. I don't remember if it came after an update or not. I use PageMash on several other sites on my server with no problems.

    I turned on $ShowDegubInfo where does the output go?

    The debug info should show deriectly on the screen after you press submit.

    There's a chance it might be caused by me using the incorrect case on a filename which I've been meaning to update.. so I'll get back to you on that one.

    OK pageMash v1.1.6 fixes the incorrect filename case, see if that resolves your issue.

    Pagemash works ok with qtranslate, it just shows the language info on the title bar.

    Great plugin!

    Hi - someone mentioned that this plugin works - but will be slow - with large numbers of pages. Does this apply for the backend operations or the frontend user experience?

    I'm building 100+ pages for my advertisers but they must load fast enough.

    Only the administrative interface will run slower with large number of pages.
