    What is the easiest way to assign page parents with this plugin?

    I'm trying to use pages because of the way wordpress handles the permalinks. I am trying to achieve the following:


    What would the easiest way to achieve this url structure with this plugin be?

    On the surface it seems parent pages and subpages would be. Any suggestions?

    NickReese: At the moment, you can assign a common parent to all categories in one CSV file by using the category parent dropdown in the plugin's UI.

    In the future, I might add a more flexible way to assign parents to categories, similar to the syntax for hierarchical taxonomies. I didn't get much feedback on the plugin's handling of taxonomies, so I don't know yet how usable that syntax is in practice.

    I am also trying to set a Parent for a PAGE using the CSV. Is there a way to do it?

    By the way custom fields just work fine. Is there a way to set a Page Template using custom fields in the CSV format for this plugin?

    erachnid: The current version of the plugin does not allow you to set parents for pages or specify page templates.

    For those of us that use this as a development tool, those two features would be EXTREMELY handy. I hope you will add them to your next update.

    Adding my vote for a parent / child page support. I regularly deploy WP sites in which I create all the page structures and my clients come in behind me and start adding their own content. I'm working on a site right this minute that has 7 parent pages and 40+ child pages. Being able to create those in one fell swoop would be a real blessing! :-) Thanks again for a great plug-in though!!!
