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.

  5. Some themes got problems if the parent isnt published an the children are. Thin about a breadcrumb or any structure where the parent should be shown.

    Yes! I think this is much needed.

    If this idea be implemented will help administrators manage the child page easily. The child page will be publish while the parent page is private. This is necessary.
