  • The standard list of pages here, we have a couple of levels of hierarchy already setup. Lets click the 'Add New' button.
  • A window pops up and gives us a visual representation of the page hierarchy. We can digg down and choose a parent page for our new page from here.
  • Clicking the folders will expand them and show the pages under them.
  • Choosing a folder will highlight it. Lets stick with this choice and hit next.
  • We can choose from a visual representation of templates (you can set all these up in the options for the plugin).
  • Lets choose the middle one, it will highlight it for us. Now lets continue.
  • You can see that the template we chose and the parent have been selected for us under the 'Page Attributes' metabox.
  • The options page for clarity, lets you upload representations for each template.
