#13499 closed enhancement (duplicate)

in nav-menus.php the page hierarchy should show

Description

when building nav menus it would help if the inherent page hierarchy was shown in the pages box. It would make mimicking the actual page hierarchy much easier. An option to add all pages with hierarchy intact would be awesome feature.

Maybe we could show hierarchy for hierarchical post types? Thoughts on that?

comment:3 @nacin5 years ago

  • Keywords close added

Menus are v1. We're not planning to deal with hierarchy at this point, though we'll reconsider in the future as we see more how people are using it, run more usability studies, and figure out how plugins/themes want to interact with the menu UI and API.

  • Keywords has-patch added; close removed
  • Version changed from 3.0 to 3.1

  • Type changed from enhancement to defect (bug)

Just a note, I think this should be set as a bug because it is a sever usability issue. Some of my customers have a lot of pages and they getting crazy messing up between pages.

If it is too late for the patch to be in 3.1 (whereas it is small and simple) please consider putting the Walker_Nav_Menu_Checklist class in a " if( !class_exists('Walker_Nav_Menu_Checklist') ) " so, in the mean time, we can at least override the walker with a plugin.

Bumping tickets is annoying. But if you're going to do so, at least check first: #17029.

comment:12 @DreadLox4 years ago

At least check bugs for duplicate. At least work on the most oldest bug reppport.

That one is 13 months old and was still open with patches attached since 7 months ago without getting any attention; The other is only 3 months old.
