Adds a CMS-like tree overview of all your pages and custom posts to WordPress – much like the view often found in a page-focused CMS.

Also check out OrganizeWP if your goal is to incorporate multiple content types into a single view!

Within this tree you can edit pages, view pages, add pages, search pages, and drag and drop pages to rearrange the order.

CMS Tree Page View is a good alternative to plugins such as pageMash, WordPress Page Tree and My Page Order. For multiple content types and other new features check out OrganizeWP as well.

Page management in WordPress won’t get any easier than this!

  • Edit pages
  • View pages

  • Works with both hierarchical and non-hierarchical post types
  • View your site hierarchy directly from the WordPress dashboard
  • Drag and drop between trees with different post types to change to post type of the draged item, i.e. change a regular page to became any custom post type

Show your pages on your site in the same order as they are in CMS Tree Page View

To show your pages on your website in the same order as they appear in this plugin, you must
sort them by “menu order”.

// Example using query_posts
$args = array(
  'post_type' => 'page',
  'orderby'=> 'menu_order',
$posts = query_posts($args);

// Example using wp_query
$args = array(
    'post_type' => 'page',
    'orderby' => 'menu_order',
    'order' => 'ASC',
$query = new WP_Query( $args );
