Good tree, bad support
By , for WP 4.5.2

In general, good plugin with a good tree and usability.

But pages are deleted permanently which is a known problem, but by the time I think this will never change.

I asked for an example for THEIR hooks 2 month ago and I got no answer. So zero points for support. Therefore I need to search for another plugin which makes it easier to customize.

Works but very slow on large site
By , for WP 4.4.2

I have a very large site with over 8800 pages, and complex multi-level structures. The plugin failed when reinitilizing the tree from WP pages:
Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 268435456 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 72 bytes) /wp-includes/meta.php on line 833. But even so, it seemed to work from the WP Dashboard. But expanding and collapsing thee structures took 10-30 seconds, depending on number of child pages. Way too slow!

IT also reports 20 pages as "Lost", but nowhere does it explain why, and WP thinks the same pages are just fine and under the appropriate parent pages.

I am only considering this plugin because CMS Tree Page View, which I have been happily using for years, seems to also have started having problems with the number of pages on my large site.

Great tree, no sorting ,can't add new page
By ,

The Add New Page no longer functions. Kind of a big deal.
There is no way to sort pages, alphabetically, for instance.
But I like having the collapsible tree.

Has potential
By , for WP 3.4.2

This could be really useful - but for me it conflicted with the "Simply Exclude" plugin, which wants to insert an extra column for each page into the "Pages" display. With APM, that extra column was no longer present, so APM appears not to be hooking into everything it needs to. So this made it not-usable-in-present-form for me. Still, it's a beta, so future versions may solve this.
