Organizing Your WordPress Pages with Folders
Wicked Folders makes it easy to organize your WordPress pages into folders.
To get started, simply go to the Pages screen in your WordPress admin site. Use the Folder Pane on the left-hand side to add, edit and delete folders (if you don’t see the Folder Pane, click the “Toggle Folders” link in the admin menu on the side of the screen).
Adding, Editing, and Deleting Folders
Use the toolbar at the top of the Folder Pane to add, edit, and delete folders. To add a new folder, click the “plus” icon, give the folder a name, and optionally select a parent folder that you’d like to place it in. Don’t worry, you can always change the folder’s parent later by dragging it into a different folder.
To rename a folder, navigate to the folder by clicking on it. Click the “pencil” icon to display the “Edit Folder” pane where you can change the folder’s name and parent. Click the “Save” button to save your changes.
To delete a folder, navigate to the folder by clicking on it and then click the “trash can” icon. A confirmation message will be displayed to confirm that you’d like to delete the folder. Click the “Delete” button to delete the folder.
Adding Pages to Folders
Once you’ve created some folders, you can move pages into them by dragging and dropping the pages. To do this, hover over the page you want to move. You’ll see a move icon appear to the left of the page’s name. Click on the icon and drag the page to the folder that you’d like to move the page to.
To bulk move pages to a folder, tick the checkbox next to the pages you’d like to move, and then click and drag the move icon next to any of the pages.
Organizing Your Page Folders
To reorganize your folders, simply drag and drop them. Note: alternatively you can organize folders by selecting a folder, clicking the “pencil” icon to edit the folder, and then assigning a new parent to the folder.
Adding Pages to Multiple Folders
To add a page to multiple folders (as opposed to a single folder), simply hold the Shift key when dragging and dropping the page into a folder and repeat the process for each folder you’d like to add the page to. This will place the page in the selected folder while also keeping it in any previously-assigned folders. Note that this does not duplicate the page; it simply creates a reference to the same page in multiple folders.
Alternatively, you can add a page to multiple folders by editing the page and selecting the desired folders in the “Page Folders” box in the right sidebar.
