The plugin does what it shall do but when you use it in combination with Polylang, you can't distinguish translations if the contents have the same titles. It would also be much better to move comments within the comments section (in the overview and in the edit mode).

I was excited to find this plugin, but found it virtually useless. 1 - you can't select a comment and make a move... you have to go to the Copy/Move form 2 - the titles of pages/posts are displayed in a tiny/narrow dropdownlist, so it's nearly impossible to ready or find a post/page
