Allow creation of sub pages, even if "parent" is not published

    Currently in WP, you can only make a child page of a page that is published.

    Sometimes when working on my website, I want to create a page with child pages without publishing them (yet). To me it would make sense to allow this (like other CMS do).

    Example:
    /main-page/ --> not published (returns a 404)
    /main-page/child-page/ --> published

    Another option would be to (at least) allow the child page to be created, without allowing it to be published before the parent page is published.

    I think this is much needed. I mostly use this for "structuring" pages within the admin view.

    Absolutely, the current behaviour is not logical indeed!

    True. There are many times when I end up briefly publishing the parent page, just to assign child pages to it, and then quickly unpublish the parent again.

    That's really inconvenient and far from intuitive.
